Of Who I Am
lyrycsyntyme

What am I to make of who I am?
 1
I can't blame tomorrow for yesterday
 2
Here I am, already fingering blame
 3
Convicting something that has yet to happen
 4
 
 
I'm charging the hands of time
 5
That has still to be announced
 6
With a list of thought crimes
 7
Of having cursed us, having lied
 8
From us, having stolen itself
 9
Telling us we had more than was left
 10
 
 
I'm charging the hands of time
 11
With a list of thought crimes
 12
I'm locking the future up
 13
With those that I never forgave
 14
 
 
What am I to make of who I am?
 15
If I can only become this man
 16
Here I am, all ready to ruin the day
 17
Guaranteeing agar agar for Misery to breed
 18
 
 
In rage,
 19
I've kidnapped the charms of life
 20
Blindly,
 21
Somehow, I've ended up
 22
With a knife in my hand
 23
The knife to it's neck
 24
Tomorrow's pleading eyes
 25
Snapping me out of it
 26
I was about to kill a kid
 27
Because she could become a Hitler
 28
 
 
I'm charging the hands of time
 29
That has still to be announced
 30
With a list of thought crimes
 31
Of having cursed us, having lied
 32
From us, having stolen itself
 33
Telling us we had more than was left
 34
 
 
I'm charging the hands of time
 35
With a list of thought crimes
 36
I'm locking the future up
 37
With those that I never forgave
 38
 
 
I'm sorry, Tomorrow
 39
Forgive me, today
 40
I should have forgiven you
 41
Yesterday
 42
