    my mood swings like the pendelum in a clock
    constant.
    i tried to hide my feelings under my attraction for a certain lady
    but even she isn't making my mood improve lately
    im way past empty, my life is like a void
    going about daily tasks with all the liveliness of an android
    i sense deception in my perception of the world around me
    i was never happy except the few months that God had found me
    now im back to trying to be strong and shoulder my burdens alone
    i feel like a stranger to myself, but to others im well known
    i want to improve my attitude and stop the mood swings
    but first i have to let go of my love for material things...
    like women, weed, and wealth, things i thought i always needed
    but even with those things, my heart hurts so bad it feels like its bleeding
    i choose the wrong path more than a man can even envision
    i've made so many mistakes i feel i need decision supervision
    i try to take my time and do the the thing that feels right
    but i always choose wrong and mess up still..in spite
    im going to desperation with only weed and music as medication
    but even medicated im not sedated and just hide my thoughts for a moment of relaxation
    its a fabrication of my heart to think ill ever be truly in love
    true love seems like a trick, like the magician and the doves
    when love turns out how u didn't plan, all you have left are memories
    i live for love, but dont trust love...contradiction is my definition of ME
    self pity is like my own personal sky, no matter what, it's always over my head
    condensing my problems and mistakes..
    raining down un-happiness on me, and the only umbrella is change...
    to weather this inner storm i need to change a lot
    my life, my decisions, my mentality, and most of all...my outlook
    i have to learn to see more positive when surrounded by negative
    im like an electron, negatively charged..moving around on sheer negative energy
    i need a total opposite charge to neutralize that
    until i meet my proton..in whatever shape it may come....
    ill keep having daymares, and continue to be midnyghts son
