    A keystyle I did a few days ago.


    i'm tired of the same played
    out subjects...

    tried of dreaming about the colors of heavens
    door steps...
    I may live long enough to
    regret this...
    but these tatted verses in hopes
    for forgiveness...
    I often find
    ridicolous....
    because we really dont
    mean it...
    we playing
    jesus...
    you cant hold a sin as
    a secret...
    and you cant live the way a preacher
    falsely preaches...
    ask those he ran off
    to massachusettes...
    mark me as a sinner because I choose
    no religon...
    I know somebody keeps
    me breathing....
    but i'm too stubborn to
    believe it...
    and within that same breath you
    just witness...
    how we often
    contradict...(ourselves)
    but we're to ashame to
    admit it...
    so we just walk a sinful(simple)
    life blinded....
