“Just Keep Sitting” – Day 241


Seems to me I’ve lost my mind,
Staying up way too late to pass the time.
Lost, traipsing along like a dancer.
Like a lightning bug on a bright summers night.
When the moon is shining so bright
And the darkness creeps and crawls across your brow.
You remember that sound,
It’s been played before.
Trickling in through the hole in your head.
Wishing you could remember that time in your bed.
When nothing ever mattered but the next minute
Not the next day, or the next year.
Where you gonna go when the nightmare scolds you
When you wake up in the middle of the night
No one’s there to hold you.
Strip yourself naked,
And jump from the gate.
Maybe you’ll make it,
But most likely you’re fish bait.

Yeah brother,
This is what it has come down too.
Swinging with your sister
While your mother’s paralyzed.
Your father’s dying,
And you’re typing out lies.
It’s black and white,
Not black and blue.
There was never anything you could do.
Just keep sitting.

I’m pretty sure I’ve hit the head on the nail.
Been sawing away at the log for way too long.
I’m lost I said, traveling along with the dead.
I’m like a bull, I’ve just got my wings.
Flying all high like a bat outta hell.
Man, lock me up, send me to jail.
I don’t know why I felt like it would hail.
I saw it in the sky, saw it in the stars.
Open up your eyes and you’ll see it too.
The suburbs are burning, the nightmare is coming.
So where you gonna go when the nightmare comes?
When you wake up in the middle of the night
To someone who wants a fight?
No one’s there to save you,
You can’t get away,
Can’t take your life and throw it in the bay.
Maybe you’ll make it,
But don’t let the other guy decide.

Yeah brother,
This is what it has come down too.
Swinging with your sister
While your mother’s paralyzed.
Your father’s dying
And you’re typing out lies.
It’s black and white,
Not black and blue.
There was never anything you could do.
Just keep sitting.

Just keep writing.
Acting like you’re already dead.
Is there not something to live for
What made this idea get into your head.
That when you close the door,
You gotta shut yourself up tight.
Build up them walls and keep them locked right.
Sacrifice yourself, and read all them books
That told you just where too look
For all the answers just didn’t care.
Now closing your eyes you can hear the screams.
As you fall down below
Down
Down
Down
Down

Yeah brother,
That’s what it came down too.
He swung with your sister,
While your mother was paralyzed.
Your father’s dead
And he’s done typing out lies.
What was black and white
Is now black and blue.
There was something for him to do.
He just kept sitting.
