Lyrics

There Was A Time
by Bryan Ranney

there was a time when i was younger
no dripping decadence no feast
could satisfy my hunger
i'd open my mouth like a desperate scream
i choked on the curses and crumbs in-between
i'm sick on the toilet i'm fat and obscene
too ugly to love too lazy to dream
there was a time when i was younger
there was a time when i had grown some
no smiling intimate embrace
could make me less lonesome
my doorbell would ring with an ominous drone
i spat at them all they should leave me alone
i cuss at the t.v. and turn off my phone
i'm selfish and boring and colder than stone
there was a time when i had grown some
and there's shards of broken glass
i cut myself and laugh
it's pitiful what passes for living
breathe in breath out
there was a time when i was older
the girl that i should have
wouldn't let me hold her
our bodies on fire all colored with scorn
sank into each other like flesh to the thorn
i buried her after and cried like a storm
there are no survivors love is forlorn
there was a time when i was older
breathe in breathe out breathe in
