Pendulum Swings

head's all up in a haze
no one cares for me
oh well, it's all I have to say
telling myself it'll be ok
morning will shine the light some other day
ups and downs yeah, I'm falling in a tailspin
thinking I need to rethink my situation
tryin' because I don't want to die yet
got to be more to life than depression
 
the way I'm going could take a life
I get scared this late at night
takes all day to win the fight
addiction is a scoical choice
addiction is whatever they say it is
people don't really give a shit
doped up then I'm less than it
don't really care if they want me here
I still talk when my voice gets drowned out
maybe if they pretend to not hear me
they won't feel as guilty when I'm gone
 
ladadadada
I could have money
and I could have girls
in a room full of people
I can still feel alone
wish I knew who my friends were
and who were my enemies
when I look in the mirror
I see the devil looking back at me
if that is who I'm meant to be
then who the fuck is this stranger?
laughing and joking
like something's so fucking funny
save this note for my grave
could take years or could take days
depends how hard the pendulum swings
