the drenched anomaly

and time after time i walk the line of no return
and time after time i wonder what it’s like to watch the whole world burn
and rhyme after rhyme you’re by my side
and i can never comprehend how you’ve not learned
that much too often, people like me lie

i can only complain that you are not here with me
when did you come to mean so much?
i can only wonder at you and how you care so naively
when did you become such a crutch of mine?
and how do i know? how do i know
that you care so out of proportion
how do i know? how do i know?
well, you were always honest

and thought after thought i wonder how it will end
and thought after thought i wish i didn’t need friends
and rhyme after rhyme you save me from drowning
and i cannot comprehend the love with which
you defend the people like me, the people like me

i can only mutter under my breath in your absense
did you think that i wouldn’t notice? (notice?)
did you
think
that i would not
care?

i am DRENCHED in SPEED
DROWNING IN THE MOMENTUM
can YOU hear ME? can YOU hear ME?
i am DROWNING IN THE MOMENTUM
or are you deaf like i am
you are not alone

i can only SCREAM when you put up with me more than i deserve
i can only SCREAM when there is nothing left to burn
i can only SCREAM
i
CAN ONLY SCREAM
