Ameliorate Me

Why do I let my past interfere with the now?

The past is over

Those struggles are far left behind 

But yet

They bother me now

What can I can about this inner conflict?

Why seek help?

Nobody has to know

The problem rips apart my insides 

And tears my heart into bits

Im slowly giving out

Help me

When I attack 

Tie me down in a chair 

And put wires around my head

Figure out whats causing this

Let me know so I can fix it


"You dont know?"

Dont tell me you dont know

"Im sorry" 

Tie me back down into that chair 

Run electricity through the wires

Dont feel bad when you hear my screaming

Now everything is ok

No more past, no more present 

And a future in the ground.
