Leave Me Behind by Jeff Oliver


Been waiting on this highway

Trying to find my way

Searching for my soul


If I listen close


I turn white as a ghost

You know I never do, as I’m told


So, I go


You keep asking me

If I stay cold as I bleed

You say I’ll burn, judgement day

But I’m the only one without no fear

I can’t make that more clear

I must be lost or just begun


So, I say


Leave me behind

Leave me behind



Director of my freak show

I write with all I am

I never had much to say

You gave me your desires

Then set that shit on fire

And said there’s more then this

Everything you said

A memory in my head


As I scratched and crawled to hell

I’m never going to die

Take what I have and thrive

I scream, scream, and scream
