Yesterday was the first day that I let go

Today is the first that no one will know

How did I get from there to here

How did it all just disappear

A rapid release, like a blur in the dark

All around me cold and stark

Where is my crystal mountain?

Where is all that they said I done?

Never was never forever for me

That’s just something I wish you could see

There’s always that tinge of self-respect

Drowned out black by self-regret

Today I’ll remember this stark, cold rhyme

As I walk that final cold, red line

I could get through life just fine quoting heavy metal lyrics.
