Minus One

by The KVB

Sinking into the mire, because you hung me out to dry Now i’m looking for some new fun, a place to lose my head Shooting up in circles, saving for every drop I’m trying but the truth hurts, the pain hurts, with every word, every word
Yesterday, i found a place Something inside i never had It turned the world upside down to me It turned my life inside out Another day came and passed me by Stuck inside this hole You came around and you talked to me The greatest friend i ever had And now how things have changed for good Cause now i have a name, i cant forget
Writing in darkness, a list of things to do But you’re crying in silence and no one hears Because they’re sleeping Oh no never again Will the tears fall and stain our world Hoping the words come as quick as the time, passes by Now we’re waiting, for a new place to rest our heads And sleep for days
I hear the sounds in dreams, separated by all fears I see a distant light, but for this time it shines too bright Oh i wanna just wake up, i wanna feel alive I need to be brave, it’s time to live or die I held it in my hands, slipped away i just felt glad No time to laugh or cry, only time to die or fight Oh i wanna just wake up, i wanna feel alive I need to be brave, it’s time to live or die
Blessed with mind and blessed with soul The best of things we never had Up and down, but in control Never good and never bad Running round, an endless track There’s no time, for you to hide away
Excited like a child, you need it more than life You need it more than you’ll ever know Brainless like a shell, this pain comes and keeps you down Untie those hands behind your back Dreaming inside out, the day comes and brings you down You’re crying, your world is oh so down Follow through the crowd, the bright lights wear you out Don’t tell me it’s not what you had in mind
Twist the knife and hold on tight as it Slips inside, slowly starts to bleed I don’t mind, i’ve seen it all before In another life, i’ve through this worse And the spit it tastes good and the leather burns Kill the lights and don’t be afraid Of the dark, It’s really just as good Every night, slowly eats away At my heart, fading with the days And the spit it tastes good and the leather burns, my soul
Start again in another place It’s on my mind, a place to fly Trapped inside for another night I wont lie, it’s too late to cry She’s breaking down the door again Come in and see, what’s left of me You wake me up to another day Just leave me be and let me dream You don’t know what it’s like To be so lost without a light, to see
