Low Expectations

“You cynical fool” she said; “open up your eyes. There were days when we dreamed, now you don't even try. I partake, you partook, and developed my fear. Now all our lost hopes fill up inside here.”

You know the place your headed, I can't see where you're taking me. The hopes and dreams for your life, they don't occur, or I can't see.

“Partially protected, but you’re… open at the flank. Tried to be a leader, but the fish head stank. “Got a lot of muscle, but your head's too strong. We’ve been living pretty good, probably won’t last us too long.”

“Pack your blaming eyes, and leave with no replies. You’ll have failed your test, and I expect no less from friends like you.”

Of all my faults and failures, the two I love the most: She's the hole inside my head, and He's the Holy Ghost. From all this celebration, the poisons I misuse… No more lying for the wolf boy, no more poor excuse.

(“Pack your blaming eyes, And leave with no replies.”)
Love me… I don't know if you do… So I'll wait and see.
(“You’ll have failed your test, And I expect no less.”)
Hate me… if you knew me like I do, then probably.
(“Drown yourself again. See if you’re happy then!”)
Take me to the low side of my pride and the gates of hell
(“Doubt will be your cell, but it probably won’t go that well.”)
where I'd buy back my soul, but it probably won't go that well.
