Tongue Tied On The Twisters Of This Demented Lifestyle

i made a big mistake
a big big mistake
now i'm in a blank slate
no thanks! i'm great
never been better
never felt more dead or alive
now i feel nothing
nothing at all
somethings gotta cost
more than the sum of the
zero's and ones of our
memories in life
that whole collection
of molecules is all i feel
now it's just plain shut out..erased
i can't even taste it on my tounge
i'm just getting tounge tied on the
twisters of this demented lifestyle
i think i know what i want to say
but i just can't find the words to say it
my minds going back in time
going in reverse, back to the basics
all i do now i bathe in shame at all
the f*ck*ng hypocricy in the world
the whole god damned world has gone mad
i dont understand a god damned thing anymore
now how the f*ck would you feel
waking up each day not knowing
what the f*ck is going on
