-Swallowed Whole-

I’ve given up on heading out
Because there’s nothing for me if I’m like this
I sit silent by myself
And come to terms with what I’ll never want

I stick out my tongue and swallow the kiss
Of my own bliss
Because when I connect it’s real
When I connect I can feel

Now I’m sucking on the dirt
And living in the hole
Of what will always be
My one and only world

-The Big Breath Before The Deep Plunge-

I need to touch a good human mind
I need to hate a good human heart
I need to leave all good humans behind
Because I can’t ever seem to make the connect

My limbs
In the dirt and grime
Is comfort
At it’s best

I need to touch a good human mind
I need to hate a good human heart
I need to leave all good humans behind
Because I don’t ever wanna disconnect

-Inept-

These clotted veins
Are full of my strange blood
I can’t bleed fluids the same way
Everyone else does
I can’t give to nothing
And I wont live in shame
We’re all fucked
But we don’t breathe the same

My lifeless shine
Is cold and dead
The existence is worthless
I can’t live up to the pain

I touch the polished glass
Every day that I’m alone

-The Center Of The Universe-

I hate the dirt beneath my feet
And I can’t stand the mouths that surround me
I wanna kill the open air I breathe
Because this place bleeds

Keep me in on all sides
With liquid life

I need to feel a difference in the air
I wanna know I can’t go anywhere
Because I don’t need to, everything’s right here
And this place steals

Keep me in on all sides
With liquid life
Threaten my feet
With scum and stone

-Guts-

I am an ugly boy
That always wants more
The more I know
The more I shut the door
And you can’t ever know
What goes on inside this sick fucking head
The older I get the more I hate everything

Hate

You can break apart my nervous lips
And suck the scabs off my eyelids
My own perceptions
Are wishes that never come true
It consumes me head first in you
My own deceptions soar high

High

-Honesty-

We will always be alone
I will always be alone
Alone but in good mental health
Honesty is the most painful policy

-Obsolete Rhythm-

Nothing’s the same
We’re in the old places
But in all the wrong ways
And speaking much different things
And we can’t go back
No matter how much you wanna
We’re stuck here for now
And tomorrow forever

These ancient streets
Drenched in rain or sweat?
We’re slowly rotting
I can feel the cold wet breath

Nothing’s the same
We’re in the old places
But in all the wrong ways
And speaking much different things
And I wont go back
No matter how much you wanna
We’re stuck here for now
And tomorrow forever

-Paths-

(You’ll always be an easy target as long as you speak open and honestly and don’t worry about what others think. It’s a tough and unfair world. Clear your own path no matter what anyone else says.)

Being so detached from the world
Has distorted my perception of age
People grow old so fast
They do it over and over again

You think I’m useless
You think I’m evil
That’s just the type that you worship later
Because overdue books get turned in
Long after the author’s dead

I can’t help it
I can’t look at it
I can’t believe what I’m seeing
You go your way and I’ll go mine
We’ll see who ends up unfulfilled in the end

History is kind to those who make it
Even the ones who were drunks at the time
