Never Fail 02:18
I remain under the covers, forever reliving the curse of that elusive outcome which inside I cherish so much. I'm the one with whom you haven't a chance. I have to respect my feelings. And at the end of the night I return to my bed alone. At the end of the night I'll return to my bed alone.
Inside I screamed—I screamed to be heard. Adding my voice to that of my friend who stood up to be counted among those who are true—true to themselves. But I couldn't move. There they were after all the talk. It was time to say take your shit and fuck off. But I just sat and stared! Why—was I afraid? Why?
If not your guilty conscience you're trying to ease, if even you have one, then what is your reason? I have no idea and can't hazard a guess. You've made me pause. I'm confused I admit. Against my better judgement your attention shows I'm in your thoughts. So it's to be friends, then, that not often keep in touch. When from you I hear, it won't amount to much.
Doll's head! Caution: Moving parts! Strewn limbs for a broken toddler's heart. Summers of distraction lead to winters of discontent.
Burning 01:47
How is it that your views have changed so much from mine? Or is it that mine have changed? Do I respect your opinion or respect that you have one? I am hesitant to stand up to you, even to discuss. I apologize for all the things that I have not yet done.
Expressed opinions in favor of those which are given to you. This spaceship Earth, ruddered for whom nations are fronts. Once again the two headed monster in which each cycle we place our trust.
So Be It 01:37
I've used the phrase reverse racism before. Do I imply there's a better way? I think it's about time we found out, wouldn't you say? Once and for all! I'm a living contradiction. In what I feel I have no say. I'm only human, but I wish there were a better way.
Eyes Closed 02:49
I close my eyes and see things the way I wish them. I touch my lips with the tips of my fingers, remembering where they were so fleetingly. How I wish I were selfish all those times. The respectful course made no difference, but it made all the difference to me. No sense dwelling in the past, but affairs such as these seldom make any sense. Time heals all wounds. While I wait I close my eyes.
With time the wind has chiseled the earth's surface. The fierce oceans have etched and carved the land. Sand turns to glass. My body rests forever. Someday... Someday I too shall leave an impression, one small stain of the tragedy that is man.
As willingly you take more shit in your own mouth, conventional wisdom pats you on the forehead. Whom then do you criticize when you know not whence you speak? What righteousness, your coterie, towards the hypocrisy. But whose?
