Holy shit, I'm a shadow- I live in your wake.
I'm living just like you and reliving your mistakes.
The words I speak are but an echo of your voice.
But I never knew you enoughf or this to be my choice.
So tell me daddy, how did you live with this?
How did you cope with memory's mist?
How did you get through all the rage and hate?
How is it I am you...I don't have to relate?
Goddamn, you fought so fucking hard.
You still succumbed and left my soul scarred.
But of course, it wasn't from lack of trying.
Shit you spent four fucking years dying.
I remember you though, you looked in my eyes.
Smiled to me and said "live forever...never die"
Legends never die, my friend.
I'm egging on death just to see you again.
But it seems as death shadows me throughout my life.
It never seems to take me but leaves all the strife.
I mean come on, admit it- I should be dead.
It's in all the medical books that I've read.
And this motivational bullshit that everyone speaks,
It seems the words are meant for all whose mind is weak.
I'll fight the bitch head-on, I'll fight against death.
But for some fuckin reason I can't catch my breath.
Given a gift that you only sought.
I can fuck anyone up....it's the fever I've caught.
And if it's not enough to fuckin keep me stressed,
It seems if anger was a gift then I've been way beyond blessed.
All I can think just forces me to cry
My mind is screaming "live forever...never die"
So death evades me but everything prevades me.
Daddy, these are all the things that made me.
I wanna live, I wanna die, I wanna scream, I wanna cry.
But nothing I say or do can ever escape the lie.
I have this power, I have this curse-
This is the second life rehearsed.
I seek my death, finding life.
I feel my skin pierced by that knife.
I'm fighting hard, Im fighting fast.
I'm holding on to what's my past.
I'm waiting for the-what's your name?
Who are you? What's this game?
Oh yeah, you're the stalker of my soul.
I forgot your face but feel your hole.
I need you daddy, please come hold me.
I need you daddy, this anger controls me.
But in the distance, I hear the clouds sigh,
They're saying "live forever...never die"
