Five Years in a Time Capsule

from Home is Where You Hate It by The Challenged



Look who is still alive waiting for the stories end
a pick at your luck you can't hold the grains of sand.
You're done with your past and you're looking for something
used, but where is all your perseverance.
I buried my friends in a yard with a time capsule,
won't let it open until 5 years to this day.
When I feel just as a helpless as a 4 yr old
and wondering if you'll follow me through the maze.
I scuffled my elbows digging through the shattered glass
as bits and pieces reflected back on me.
Fragments of lost desperation and regrets,
reminds me of the negativity.
I lost my mind in a crazy yellow taxi ride,
as bright as a wide-eyed youngster in the streets
that's waiting for an announcement on the loudspeaker…
will you, ever find me..
would you GIVE UP today,
would you throw everything away
would you GIVE UP today
if I asked you to.
Never wanted something,
always wanted someone.
Syndicates flashing new commercials once again..
I opened my buried old time capsule only to find that
the shit wasn't there….
