lyrics

I wanna -- Write my words on the face of today /
But they will -- Paint them away, and they will paint them away //
So it seems I'll never stay sane, drifting away /
And my dreams get blocked so I'm facin the rain //
I'm just afraid to change -- look to the sky /
But if I stop dreamin now, then it's time to die //
And people stand around on borrowed time wondering why /
Ever body's lost direction, just wandering by //
If I make it up to thirty it'll be a surprise /
I'm on the '27 Club' list, ready to ride //
A question mark on my head, feel lost in my eyes /
I'm sick of seein tears, and sick of hearin the lies //
And I despise how the media covers this life /
It's like a light bulb flicked on, burning the light //
And now it's out, in this blackness, screaming I shout /
"Stick a needle in my arm" I'm never pullin it out, so... //

I don't feel the sun's comin out today /
It's stayin in, it's gonna find another way //
As I sit here in this misery /
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here //
I don't feel the sun's comin out today /
It's stayin in, it's gonna find another way //
As I sit here in this misery /
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here //

Got a mouth full of cavities, laughin inside /
No expression on my face, just tears in my eyes //
But it's alright, it's just a sick dream, awake in a minute /
But if I... Snap out of it than I'm no longer livin //
This vivid image is intimate with me, solemnly sittin /
A sip of the liquor, lit the ciggarett I'm suddenly sickened //
The leveled sentiment of sentient sentence sent from guns /
Are completely washed away by a Black Hole Sun //
The rain washes everything, and it's getting more clear /
Maybe someday I might... see the sun from here //
But as of now.. heh, I'm still stuck in the shade /
And you pray every single day hoping I'll fade //
And I may, But until then I'm still leavin' my mark /
In the alley ways and sewers that are stuck in the dark //
The abandoned houses, drug heads, and benches I've felt /
I claim everything as mine becuase I'm stuck in this hell, since... //

I don't feel the sun's comin out today /
It's stayin in, it's gonna find another way //
As I sit here in this misery /
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here //

I don't feel the sun's comin out today /
It's stayin in, it's gonna find another way //
As I sit here in this misery /
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here //

I don't feel the sun's comin out today /
It's stayin in, it's gonna find another way //
As I sit here in this misery /
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here //
