All day, all day
Sweeping out the shards
Do what I have to do
Try to start anew
But I thought of you twice
Couldn’t help myself
I don’t know what I need
Clutching and fingering the rosary beads

But I try, try, try, but I know (try, try, try, but I know)
I can’t let go
Try, try, try, but I know (try, try, try, but I know)
I can’t let go

TV upstairs,
Leave it on all night
Do what I have to do
Add, subtract, and divide by 2
But my eyes light up,
At cops and robbers time
I hope the bad guys win
I hope the good guys get their skulls bashed in

And I try, try, try, but I know (try, try, try, but I know)
I can’t let go
I can’t let go

    General Commenthe's fighting the swarm of dark thoughts with distractions, god, and violence, and he knows it isn't working, but he has to keep trying to maintain what's left of his sanity.
