The Ragged Skull

Short on height but tall on style
Spitting words that go for miles
Brother of mine, partner in rhyme
You've gone now, at your time
I've got this groove you gotta hear
Bob our heads, drink our beers
Laugh at all the silly jokes
Seeing dreams and getting stoked
While I am sad that you're gone
It's teaching me that I gotta stay strong
They say "it's just life you know"
I just hate to see you go
The last thing I remember though
We said "I'm gonna miss you bro"
This one's for you to remember by
These words are yours to never die
There will never be another one
Never another Ragged Skull

Lost in my mind
Talk to me love
Would you be so kind
I'm not there
I've never been here
Wish I didn't care

With all this room
There's no space for me
My mind's a tomb
For bad memories

It's not the same
I hear no words
All this change
Fight back tears
I'm all alone
I have my fears

It doesn't matter
It's only me
Continue to shatter
It's all for you
Even in your silence
I love you
