Down And Out Again

It's about ignoring the advice of people when they try to help you as you engage on a self-destructive path

On the verge and now I understand the reasoning behind it all

I refused to speak and dared myself not to listen

My conscience knew me so well but I defied logic for a high

Conviction departs and I sense my bitter humour strikes again

Irony can be colder than any northern wind

 

Take the hand that reaches out

But I only wished to silence the world

I only reach to reach and hit the mouth

That speaks words alien to me

 

Here I go, finding myself scratching at my soul

Down and out in this void, feeling old

Down and out in this hole

Down and out yet again

 

I spoke only to see if anyone was still listening

I felt a presence but toyed around and it's gone

I chose bliss but found the road to hell instead

Only when I've lost everything, do I admit that I'm wrong

 

Fair well, I'm sad but better than before

Harsh words rally the blood and I soar

Departing, and I'm trying so hard to change

Cursing myself for giving a damn at all

 

Here I go, finding myself scratching at my soul

Down and out in this void, feeling old

Down and out in this hole

Down and out yet again

The End
