I've kept it in my heart
For over twenty fucking years
And all that time wasting away
With the stench of my split tears
I've lingered on the amorous
Transformed it into something hideous
With the love of life felt to new extents
And reaching new highs of ugliness
The stooge
Stool pigeon of idiots
King of jesters, pawn of comediennes
A pillar that supports my own demise
Believing all that's seen
Through my vacant eyes
I'm rewriting paragraphs
I'm my life that don't read well
Once opposed to editing my regrets
I've grown sick of this denial
Tempted every hour
By the benefits of being a liar
Turning by back at what's at hand
And writing stupid verse to make it all seem grand
Some say there's something to strife
That serves those grieving spineless artists
Transforms shit into a masterpiece
And makes their vain attempt at pain
So fucking romantic
And I'm certain that someday my time will come
I'll crash and burn like everyone

    General CommentWhy doesn't this song have any comments!? It's amazing! This is my favorite song by them even though it doesn't have any Folk elements, but it's still really cool. :)

    By the way, the meaning seems kinda self-explanatory. I'm guessing that it's a guy that's kept something in his heart for over 20 years, and he needs to let it go because he's wasting his time crying over it.
