I Can’t Seem To Write

I can’t seem to write
The words aren’t there
The tip of my tongue
World and long renowned
As a quick-draw revolver
And though I’ve got it aimed
There’s no ammunition

I can’t seem to write
The words aren’t there
The back of my mind
A well catalogued library
Is in perpetual disarray
And every book I want to read
Has been loaned out

There’s ten thousand clichés
For what I’m trying to convey
But try as I may and might
I just don’t have the words
I’m stuck in the mud
Spinning my wheels
Running in neutral

I can’t seem to write
The words aren’t there
The tip of my tongue
Is still a well-loaded gun
Holstered beneath a smile
My thoughts itch the trigger
But I know better

Sweet Lullaby

I’m patient of what’s to come
Maybe just playing dumb
I’ll wait for another tomorrow
‘Cause I got time left to borrow
As always just trying to play cool
In the end I’m playing the fool
I know you were expecting more
But nobody else is coming through the door

I’m overzealous of what I want
Said with a smile and sickly jaunt
I don’t know any sweet lullabies
Read between cigarettes and lies
Neither of us really has much to say
Must be all cause of this rainy day
I know you were expecting more
But nobody else is coming through the door

Now it’s anyone’s best guess
As to whose gonna clean my mess
I can feel a tiny scratch in my mind
And old friends who weren’t so kind
All these thoughts that lie within me
Tell me that I’m too far gone to see
I know you were expecting more
But nobody else is coming through the door
