Nod From Hell

by Eric Seligmann

It's so curious
Nasty secrets found
She acts completely different
When no one is around
Most are oblivious
Hoping it doesn't show
Bruises were all that she left
Behind battered ego

All my efforts end in misses
But at least there's points for style
Miracles are measured in inches
And I've run a whole damn mile

Look down everything
In the eyes of the worthless face
My heart melts liquid
Gives off metallic taste
Crack me apart, I smell of you
My ego is so bruised
Bribe the executioner
To skip the scripture
And a little help
To just give me a sign from god
Or a nod from hell

Its so obvious
In your mind your never wrong
No need to forgive or apologize
If you're always right
I'm tangled on short leash spun
From your web of lies
Giving enough rope to hang myself
My hands are always tied

All my efforts end in misses
But at least there's points for style
Miracles are measured in inches
And I've run a fucking mile

Look down everything
In the eyes of the worthless face
Crack me apart, I smell of you
Fuck you
And fuck the human race
Bribe the executioner
To skip the scripture
And a little help
To just give me a sign from god
Or a nod from hell

Post traumatic stress has me left
To rot inside my mind
Pardon the blood that runs down
My throat has been slit
My eyes gauged out
The memories left
In old scars kept
Allows resentments to thrive
How can we start healing the pain
If we can't learn to forgive again?

In the end, I'm left in stitches
Same shit, smaller shovel, bigger pile
Miracles are measured in inches
And I've run a fucking mile

stare down everyone
In the eyes of the worthless face
I'm consumed by rage
Fuck you
And fuck the human race
I believe your mind is diseased
As far as I can tell
I'm still waiting on my sign from god
or that nod from hell
