    i've been holding on to something that's gone
    something that to me never belonged
    like breathing life into something that's been dead
    i try to pump in green fluid
    like the reanimator
    crazy mufukker
    it's all in my head
    but i made myself crazier still
    so busy putting in overtime electric shocks
    i forgot to chill
    if i step back and look
    i've been actin really ill
    and i don't have anymore time to kill
    it's dead girl it's dead!
    i couldn't seem to get that through my head
    longing for times that are long since gone
    all for the sake of holding on
    and what's left ain't a whole lot betta
    but facing my fears made my tears get wetter
    i find myself on bended knee
    lookin' for direction
    i look up and the sun is shining upon me and mine
    but i can't even see that
    cause i'm too busy pressing the rewind
    but after today the rewind is done
    tired of going there and then getting shunned
    when all the while
    like the smile of a child
    i've had the answers, i've had the key
    you've been obsessed with doing you
    so now i'm simply doing me
    and like some mad doctor that's cheated death
    i'm the one with something left
    cause i found solace in what's only mine
    no time to obsess, while you obsess in kind

    Yeah, huh!

    This one was very close to my own heart. Thank you for reminding... I was having a solo pity party tonight. :)

    Much love to you, for sure...
