Simply Listen

nothing will slow my rage
the heart that beats in me
craves to feed on excitement
sinful activities are poisoning
but god damn theyíre addictive
underneath the starlight
I think about everything falling down
and thatís just the dark side of humanity
the part people donít want to talk about

I try to be cheerful
but some things pain me
everyone has an opinion
on what I do and who I'm with
why the fuck does it matter?
let my words be your peace
but everyone wants to sink in deeper
shit like that makes me want to give in

Iím a book of stories
some real and some fake
but Iím not ready to tell all
I feel people donít really care to hear it
they rather assume my life
dismiss my words with judgment
and not listen toÖ yeah, simply listen
