Quote of the day: "Well, I wish that I could tell you it was easy, just take the paved road right to paradise. But the truth is my friends, the pain and suffering never ends. Make amends with medicine, amnesia, and lies." - Avalon

You've given it all you can,
And your life is in the garbage can,
And you say you're tired and dry,
Cuz your mind won't let you cry,
So you hang up what is left inside
And you want to kiss it all goodbye.

You're lost in space, you're swirling ever higher,
You're lost on your own, you're too far from home.
You're no one's friend, you gave it your best try yeah!
You're stuck in the drone, of being alone.

You turn to light, but all you get is darkness,
Your head turns to stone, your numbness has grown.
You're stuck inside your little world of rejects,
The good world unknown, you're stuck in the drone.
