Listless
This day I spent being all but what I meant
What I really meant to be
I'm not abused, I'm not confused
I just have the wrong value of me
Because I always will to do what I feel
And that is to not do a thing

I cannot pull myself up
I cannot lift my head up
My heart is lifted to me
I'm so lazy

I commit the crime of letting time go behind
Avoiding peace filling my lungs
So I just sit and stare from my desk or rocking chair, all because of me
I don't feel alive because this is not my life, I'm living like the dead
I can't wait for me and my sad body to give what I desire
A part of love is time and choosing to spend it right
If I believe why won't I be?

I cannot pull myself up
I cannot lift my head up
My heart is lifted to me
Until I choose to go beyond me with the strength I cannot see
I'm so lazy
