 HOME OF THE FLOWING PEN

Self Destruct Button


Take this food far from me
I no longer need such wasteful things
Take the pillow from beneath my head
I wish to never sleep again

Take my family and my friends
They can't follow me to the end
Take this breath now from my chest
Leave my hollowed eyes to rest

Such a powerful thing I hold in my hands
I only hope you can understand
For the mistakes I've made, I will be punished
Pressing again, that self destruct button

I want to crumble, I want to fall
Just to feel something, anything at all
I can't live up to life's demands
Please help me now....I'm reaching for your hand...
