`Walking Time Bomb`

24/ 7 got those demons in my head
Asleep or awake its all the same
I’m not feeling sorry for myself
Not looking for someone to blame

Surely death will give me peace?
Or am I already there?
Walking this earth with PTSD
Next to the man without a care

I’m jealous of his happy life
Nice house and steady job
Big Brother soccer and down the pub
His sanity has not been robbed

Until the day he takes the piss
One look one thoughtless  remark
He’s put me back on the battlefield
To him a silly lark

I should have stayed at home that day
With the demons in my head
Instead I went into your world
I’m sorry you’ve ended up dead.
