Goodbye world

Disgusted and afraid
Think I’m gonna have to be
Brave again
There’s a shadow in a room
Holding a cane
Can you take another beating?
Will you go insane again?

They got you in their grip
They got you in their reign
There’s nothing you can do
To prevent it

Think you’ll have to be brave
Think you’ll have to be fit
Think you’ll have to be strong
And take it, and take it

You don’t know why
No, you don’t know why
They teach you nothing
Then you are punished for it

There was no way out
There was no way in
You just have to stand there
And take the hit

Look at that feeling
Isn’t it the best
Can you believe this heart?
That’s beating in your chest

Alas it’s so distant now
It’ll never come again
Alas it was like a dream
Now it’s back to the pain

Goodbye world
You gave me
Nothing but pain
You leave me to collapse
And to fall down the drain

Goodbye world
I’ll never miss you
You’ve hurt me and you’ve scarred me
You’ve beat me
Thru and thru

Never one to complain
I take the blame
Never one to ask for help
Or to tell
I take all the pain again

Goodbye world
I won’t miss you
And I won’t cry
It’s goodbye world
You’re day is coming
Sorry I won’t be there
To see you die

If I could scrape the cash together
If I could survive the weather
If I could get up on my feet
If I could make the people see
But you know this cannot last
And my blood is leaking fast
And no ones there for me
And I don’t have what I need
And I need love
And I need love

We all feel bad sometimes as the man said. Well I’ve got to find some way of expressing it. I can only hope that it gets better for all of us. There is always hope.

This could be a slap up song, maybe, but I need to take a deep breath, first. I can’t pretend it’s not how I feel this morning, I had some rough times but some good times too.

So i look at this as a performance piece, as a fiction, like always.

What’s that Greek work therapeutic no something like that
