Trash

Trash (23/12/2011)

I'm sick and tired
Of yelling questions in the wind
Of hoping an answer will stir
I'm worn out
From this endless battle
With my own hopeless self

The memories just never stop occurring
The nightmares just don't go away
That final moment of naivety
Of child-like innocence
Tossed away
Like forgotten trash

There was no fight or flight
Nothing
I just stood there frozen
Helpless
Oh, how that moment haunts me
Why didn't I run?
Try to push him away

The memories just never stop occurring
The nightmares just don't go away
That final moment of naivety
Of child-like innocence
Tossed away
Like forgotten trash

All I can do now
Is run my voice horse
Yelling questions in the wind
Oh

I gave up on getting answers so long ago
Its just a release
A useless habit
If I could turn back time
Though I know its not possible

I would've ran away
The moment I knew he wasn't safe
I would've listened to my instinct
And simply turned away

The memories just never stop occurring
The nightmares just don't go away
That final moment of naivety
Of child-like innocence
Tossed away
Like forgotten trash 

The End
