Lyrics for "Scares Me To Think" by Mission Man

It scares me to think
That I can be winked
Out of existence at the bink
Of an eye
I try
So hard
Turning inches into yards
By fighting and clawing
I'm biting my jaw and
Grinding my teeth
Leaving nothing beneath
As I seek for the truth
And I leave behind my youth
Sacrificing everything for what I love
Giving all I have in the club
Sweat pouring and dripping off my skin
My shell's so thick but life is so thin
Ignoring the haters in my guestbook
Just look
And you'll see
The negativity
In some of their words
I ignore them unseen and unheard
Blurred
Into a distant haze
Not affecting my days
I keep on with the struggle
Praying the trouble
Doesn't bubble
Into what happened last night
Dimebagg shot in plain sight
With others from Damage Plan
I don't understand
What happened with that crazed fan
So now I mourn the death
Of one of the best
As I try for breath
As I feel the stress
My lungs are frozen
By body is broken
I can't see
Last night I didn't sleep
I sent a demo to the placed
Where Dimebagg played
His last song
If I had played there I could now be gone
What went wrong
He just walked on
The stage without resistance
And took the existence
Of a legend
And shook the existence
Of everyone in attendance
Too many musicians have died prematurely
We pray too early
For lives that should still be here
I may shed a tear
But won't give into my fears
When I think about who else got shot
Tupac
John Lennon
And Biggie Smalls were all sent to Heaven
Way before their time
Masters of the rhyme
And more importantly the human spirit
You could hear it
And feel it in their lyrics
And their soulful expressions
Millions learned their lessons
Their lives were blessin's
To all of humanity
How can it be
That we have to deal with the cost
Of that loss
You see I'm afraid
I've played
Many-a-stages
And plenty-a-places
With twenty-some faces
And gone through plenty of phases
And I
Hope I don't die
Shot by some crazed fan
Who doesn't understand
