I’m under no illusion I suffer no delusion Life’s no fucking cakewalk at the best of times But I will not surrender I know it will get better No matter how tall the mountains I must climb   And though the path grows steeper The shit I wade through ever deeper I keep hoping the […]

There’s no cure for the sickness There’s no antidote or drug No way out of the darkness I’m out of time and out of luck Give up on me, do it please I can’t fight it anymore Let me give in to the disease Because I know there is no cure   Did you know […]

Is there anybody out there? Can anybody hear me screaming? Is there anybody out there? Can someone free me from this nightmare?
