Too Stupid

What are you thinking?
Don’t tell me what you’re thinking
Why should I care?
I’m too stupid to not care
Don’t think of it as a blank stare
I’m just not blinking
Because the nothing left inside
Is all I have to share

The past comes back to haunt
All alone
Memories tease and taunt
Needing to look so strong
All alone
Afraid of getting it wrong

I don’t want to be alone

What was I dreaming?
I want to stop the dreaming
Don’t think I don’t care
I’m too stupid not to care
Don’t want to be misunderstood
There can be no meaning
Because with everything to lose
There’s nothing left to share

Buned to ash and dust
All alone
Doing what I must
Not wanting them to stare
All alone
Wondering why I still care

I don’t want to die alone

Six String Smile

Talk a lot but don’t reveal much
Keep it inside, it’s better off as such
Better to live with the invisible touch
Than to be left out in the cold again

Just give me an acoustic guitar to noodle upon
I don’t need to be able to play it well
I just need to find myself for a while
Finding that six string smile

You’ll never understand but I love you anyway
Or maybe that’s the reason I love you
To not be understood is a blessing in disguise
Because nobody knows who you are today

So who are you today?

Always listen but don’t decipher
Pretend that you think you can trust again
What happened once will again occur
Strike first and leave it in dust

So who are you today?

Just give me an electric guitar to thrash upon
It doesn’t even need to be in tune
I just need to lose myself for a while
Trying to find that six string smile

So who are you today?

Without a Trace

Something inside
Needing to be said
Finding silence
Lost in endless words
Now is not the time or place
Suddenly the moment’s gone
Without a trace

Indelible marks
Staining the future
Turning around
A glimpse of the past
Staring at a familiar face
In an instant she is gone
Without a trace

I’d like to stay but I need to run
Take a slingshot ride around the sun
Into deep space
Going to leave this place
Abandoning the cruelty of the human race

Fall off
Move on
Abandon the path through time I’ve been travelling on
Some might notice
But none will care
If suddenly I just wasn’t there

Hidden shadows
Lurking in the halls
Leave the light on
Pushing them away
Emptiness keeping its pace
Until all feeling is gone
Without a trace

Fading away
Jaded by what’s been
No one will know
You were ever here
Without any empty space
Why should they notice you gone?
Without a trace
