Six Feet Under

[chorus]
I’ve been sleeping in the backyard of my brain
I’ve been fighting through the rings of all this pain
I just want to end it all someway somehow
Why does six feet under seem so good right now? (x3)

Sometimes when I close my eyes,
Wait please scratch that and let us rewind,
let me rephrase that just one time,
I meant to say every single time,
that I shut my eyes and I search my mind
and I try to find a new way to try.
All I find is a new way to die,
All I see is a new cause of death
no I can’t seem to find rights in the middle of the left
side of my brain and I must confess
that even though I picture it with every breath
I’m not ready to die, no not quite yet.
I fret, trembled, sending prayers to a higher power
wilt, waltz, step, and tilt my head as I contemplate things that I’ve remembered
December is coming, no more November.
End of the year, hope your farewell is tender.
But why but why, do I see such evil when I close my eyes,
All I see is death in a storm with rain and thunder
And then it’s like the lightning strikes and puts me six feet under.

[chorus]

Every single time that I close my eyes and I dream
Whether night or day and I fall asleep, sleep seems,
to creep, peep peeping through the seams of the back of my eyes
as I lack what I deem is right to fight these demons on the backs of eyes
through the cracks with their spies, still intact are their lies.
It’s this evil that I must despise, with them there is no form of compromise,
unless you reap what you sow unless you weep for what you know
unless you keep track of where you go, what you do, enjoy the show.
I don’t think that I can fight this, can I rewrite this, this I wonder
but the more I ponder hurt the more I dig up dirt and it leaves me six feet under.
But the more I ponder hurt the more I dig up dirt and it leaves me six feet under.

[chorus]

I’m losing this battle; I’m losing my mind.
I’m losing this battle, against my mind.
I don’t think that I can fight this, can I rewrite this, this I wonder
but the more I ponder hurt the more I dig up dirt and it leaves me six feet under.

[chorus] x2
