Life Sucks

I need to get away! I am wasting away!
My life is being drained! I can’t take the pain!

I am begging You, please!
As I cry on my knees
Please take away this pain
As my hope begins to drain
My boss is a joke
He is strung out on coke
I am barely getting by
And he just wants to get high

He is a friend of mine
And I am watching him die
Emotions come in like a flood
I want to cut my throat and spill my blood

I offered you my heart
You took it and tore it apart
Sure we’ll still be friends
But after the scars mend
Everything will return to normal
We’ll keep things good and formal
I will hide my pain inside
For a piece of my heart just died

Life sucks…

I must choke back the sorrow
So I can have a fresh face tomorrow
How much longer can I last?
Before you see through my mask?
The pain swells up inside (There is no place I can hide)

Overwhelming frustration
I sink into depression
The load I bear is too heavy
The pain is piercing and grows steady
I have nothing left to give
I barely have the strength to live
I masked my pain so well
You had no idea I was living in hell

I’ve never been cut this deep before
I don’t think I can take much more
Headaches, stomachaches, heartaches
How much more do I have to take?

Will You not rescue me?
I am drowning in this bitter sea
Wave after wave has knocked me ‘round
I grow weak and soon I’ll drown
Broken and bruised I crawl to You
Watch my heart for it’s black and blue
Weeping, I call Your Name
Only You can ease my pain

Life sucks…

I can’t take more suffering
I feel like I am slowly dying
Failure after failure
Torture, torture, torture…
Will anything go right?
I don’t have the strength to fight
Failure after failure
Torture, torture, torture…

Life sucks…
