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

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

Don’t Go There

Looking in the dark for a rose in the heather
Waiting in the wings for a change in the weather
Don’t go there
Dodging bullets blazing over your head
Wrestle down the demons hiding under your bed
Don’t go there
It can’t be over a moment too soon
There never was any breathing room
Don’t go there

It always leads to nowhere
Don’t go there
They’ll all just stop and stare
Don’t go there
Life just isn’t fair
Don’t go there
Why should anyone care?
Don’t go there

Trying to read the sign at the end of the road
Watching the foundation waste away and corrode
Don’t go there
Rowing for the shore on the bank of the river
Waiting for a package the postman won’t deliver
Don’t go there
Emptiness fills a bottomless glass
Needs unfulfilled now left to pass
Don’t go there

It might just be a nightmare
Don’t go there
A caustic love affair
Don’t go there
Never allowed to share
Don’t go there
Safe in your electric chair
Don’t go there
