"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Max Vernon - When Your Body Breaks

[t61]

Look around now, everything is green —
not the grey that taints your memory,
paints your day, at night leaves you lonely..
if you could only.. if you could only

Figure it out now
take the bandaids off; see the hole you almost forgot about
Get some thread and stitch your body up..
If you can keep it shut.. if you can keep it shut..

You’ve got better things to do than standing there with baited breath,
watching the world pass by in front of you
wondering if you’ll get what’s left
Oh you deserve better than that and you’re gonna have it.
Your body’s breaking — you’re left with just your mind;
you’re gonna be fine, but it’ll take time….
it’ll take time….

Hit the ground now, face the fall and dive —
it’s not as scary as the people who get you high;
get you through another night,
get you to give up the fight,
Get you to take it right, bend over and take it right

to the bottle. Look what you’ve become —
you’re a personality instead of a person with one.
And no one cares what you think unless it gets them drunk;
that’s all they ever talk about.

I know you’ve got better things to do
than standing there blind, dumb, and deaf;
letting strangers take your pride from you
and wondering if you’ll have any left.

Oh you deserve better than that
and you’re gonna find out sooner or later.
Your body’s breaking, you’re left with just your mind;
you’re gonna be fine, but it’ll take time…
It’ll take time…..
