I try to keep who you want me to be at arms length, but you fill my thoughts. Mystery and fear: They are synonymous when I'm aware. My heart is as pure as the sun, but neither remain forever. Unless you will impart them to me. Progress and growth: nothing will ever change 'til you come home. Wherever it is you want to call home, I want to be your home. But nothing moves until your words reach my ears or you bind my arms.

Impassive words meet passive ears; they respond with devotion. Your weightless message and all your vassals make me want to rip my freaking eyes out. Are your words sacred? Is that why you're foaming at the mouth? It never was about the truth for you, it's all about the bones you crush/blood you suck. You don't have to say a thing, your constant bleating speaks louder than the herds you keep repeating. But you can't give up yet when there's a million people left for you to make feel they're not as smart as you. Don't tell me you're tired yet when there's a million people left for you to make feel they're not as smart as you. Chew them up, spit them out. Spit them up, chew them out. There's nothing left for you to consume. I've nothing left to prove to you. I can see your heart when you open up your mouth. I'm sure you make yourself so proud, swooping down from your ivory-tower-mountaintop. I hear your voice, and I can't help but think "shut up."

Every word that you say is in front for your friends, and they're all in bands. And all of them think that they have something to say, because they're all in bands. But Repetition of ideas hinders creativity, yet they're all in bands. And all your friends act and think the same, through and through. Well, all mine do too. I'm in a band, because I'm in a band. I can see the flashing lights, like stars falling from the skies in front of my eyes. Maybe I'll be on the cover of a zine with a link to my band's album you can download for free. I can tell we're gonna make it big, but not too big 'cause we're not sellouts and that wouldn't be punk. I'll talk about our album at everybody's shows. We'll be on all my favorite blogs in a couple of weeks. Just cast, hook in, pull it back, reel it in. Just cast, hook in, pull it back, reel it in. Just cast, hook in, pull it back, reel it in. Just cast, hook in, pull back, repeat again. I'm in a band.

Scorched grass passes by the hand print on the glass of the backseat window of my parent's van. I'm laying down and I think there will never be a better time than the 90's. But I don't want to always need arcade cabinets to inspire me to not do drugs. I can't keep on looking back and think, "it was better back then, when I was a kid." I'm still programmed to wake up early on saturday mornings. It sucks to remember a time when I had no responsibilities. But I'm beginning to think that it's a sickness that I don't want to fight. Or perhaps an excuse to prevent me from enjoying where I've been brought. I'm still programmed to wake up early on saturday mornings. It sucks to remember a time when I had no responsibilities. But I think that my perspective is crippling. And maybe, that time was a gift that I was given to pass on?

Stillborn 04:19
Every word I say is failed poetry. It's not sad, it's not funny. And I'm too terrified to think about the way I feel or what that means or how to change it. I just want to dwell on how I hate myself for what I've done to myself and everyone else. Time goes on and on, the more I hate it.. The more it fits. I was stillborn. Not in the physical sense, but in the way I've lived. Not in the spiritual sense, but in the way I've lived. I want to be born-again-again.
