Bad things happen to good people and bad people and all people.
If you want to have balance in life, you have to create the balance.
Insufflate obscurity.


Broken down slow, torn apart piece.
Grave mistake made,
Blatant reckless nervous way.

Not to complain, but your eyes fail to se.
Such arrogance,
Fastest end in history.

Blackened view of all who may disagree.
Pissed away time,
When there's one you see three.

Confine yourself, can't be left alone with me.
Break open wide,
Demons rise where I am me.

Time is not on your side.
It's not on your side, nor will it be.
There's nothing for you it's all for me.
It's not your side nor will it be.
Nor will it be!

Yeah, maybe you be all the bad that sets me free.
Faces ingrained,
Memories that kill your dreams.

Narcotic clouds insufflate obscurity.
I beg for change,
You wish that you could be me.

Time is not on your side.

I'm right.
I'm right.
You're wrong.
