The Bullet and the Trigger

Tick tock like a clock
Digging my own grave
And every time I look
I see we’re getting more depraved
So tell me what’s the point
In this predictable parade
Of politics and perverts
Hell bent on getting laid?

Bang, bang like a bomb
Let’s all aim for number one
Because if you’re not the best
Then they lay you down to rest
I guess we’re all insane
Pretentious and pathetic
But God bless our souls
We’re all so fucking energetic

And I wish I was a gun
The bullet and the trigger
So I could pull myself for fun
And watch the hole get bigger
Because I’m just like you
Another sick motherfucker
I’m a selfish contradiction
I’m a hater, not a lover

The world and every thing and one in it is a really nasty joke!

    A very clever write, egocentric righteousness comes in the form of the lover and the hater and a mix of the two.
  • Er… not sure what that means but ok :D
    Thanks :)

    Ummm, having a bad day? Hope you change your mind tomorrow about ‘everything’ and ‘everyone’… Sending positive thoughts your way.

  • It’s not a mood. I’m in a perfectly fine mood. It’s a view, an opinion, an outlook, etc. What more would one expect from a misanthrope like myself :p
    Thanks for reading :D

    Raw With Laughter! Seriously though, incredibly dark yet intensely funny… and perhaps a little close to the bone… Oh well, WTF! ;-)



  • Hmmm, same problem as my Watching image. Not meant to be funny, yet people laugh.
    Interesting… thanks anyway :)

    It’s our nature to think of number one,we are all selfish one way or another.
    Survival i guess.
