  • Today is not the fucking day
    I sympathize with their pain
    Their negative ways
    Giving birth to endless cries and complaints
    I'm too close, just boiling with rage
    I choke on this feeling of war
    In my throat every day
    Swallowed every bitter pill, now I'm forced to chew
    Hearing every vicious word
    Their filthy mouths spew
    My thoughts descend into the abyss
    My heart is begging me to finish this

    Today I wish a motherfucker would try
    Think of someone other than themselves one time
    Today I wish a motherfucker would try
    To see this fucked-up world through my eyes

    Please God, don't let me act on these words
    And forgive those who choose to test my last nerve
    I see red, can't cleanse it away
    They took kindness for weakness
    Now they answer on this desperate day
    Wake up alone, again nothing's changed
    Infected my demons, all my visions become deranged
    Seven enemies to vanquish one-by-one
    Hatred blisters the surface of my tongue

    Today I wish a motherfucker would try
    Think of someone other than themselves one time
    Today I wish a motherfucker would try
    To see this fucked up world through my eyes

    Not today
    I thought they'd find a better way
    Today is not the fucking day Writer/s: CHRIS BEATTIE, JAMES SHANAHAN, MATTHEW BYRNE
