I'm tired of being sensitive
And feeling so much all the time.
I think I'll be a sociopath
And get it all off my mind.
I'm sick of all the sentiment
That courses through my veins.
If I could be a sociopath
I'd send it back from where it came.
I'm tired of the twisted nerves
That come with what I feel
And all the other problems it causes
That often make me ill.
I will simply become detached from it all
By examining each emotion,
And disassemble each of them
So they don't cause such commotion.
Experiences will be analyzed
In a scientific fashion.
I'll calmly relate to all events
Minus that messy passion.
It will be easy to be a sociopath -
With all the examples I've been supplied -
I'll worry no more about anyone, except -
Me, myself and I.
It's a matter of survival here
I really think I'll do it.
To empathy, henceforth, I say,
Be gone with you. Screw it.
