courage dawned on me just enough to run away and just in time any longer i would have died from lack of love so i fled to save my life but for months she writes and says mi vuoi sposare? to which i reply tu non mi ami -- hai rotto il mio cuore why the sudden contradictions i suspect you've changed your mind but not in time i'm sorry, i can't so much pain was shared just enough to fuck us up for years i cried -- won't you please believe in me? but your lack of trust kept you from seeing me: the man you once loved was forgotten and hated, thus you brought me down and convinced me i wasn't much because to you, i wasn't much

Want 04:02
where're your eyes? where're your eyes when you need them? you'll have to do more than you're doing but look at you you're so huge you're a star but you're drifting drifting far to nowhere nowhere is where we're going so please don't rape the earth sitting on the prize how's it taste once it's stolen? you'll have to steal more to get the point well the point is, we're fucking up so please don't rape the earth they're spinning lies spinning lies just to trick trick trick you into spending so much more than needed but you need it is what you're thinking so you keep raping the earth what is there to buy when all you're in need of is what you're so blind is seeing the truth is - yea the truth is we're all blind so we just rape the earth when's the last time you stopped yourself from wanting all the little things you're shown and we're shown all those murdered babies ooh all those empty houses ooh all them flashy stars ooh all the things we want

careless in our desires reckless in our being all the while a common need that we have neglected a quote from my love rich in meaning, too complex for reading and here, here's another i'm having trouble reading i can walk away a thousand times but there's no leaving not until the mystery decides it's time what have we neglected what's this common need tell me your mystery which looms and threatens to leave me i'm afraid to see her go i'm afraid to lose my heart you're afraid to hold too tight for fear your might choke love to dead a quote from my love rich in meaning, too complex for reading and here, here's another i'm having trouble reading i can walk away a thousand times but there's no leaving not until the mystery decides it's time

Flooding In 04:40
i couldn't take the pain i couldn't stand your spite i see you've written a hundred times but i'm too scared to read your words i'm afraid to fall again i'm too scared to take the train for fear i'll see your questioning eyes though i love you it's true staying with you is impossible living with my guard up is what brought me down and was what pulled us apart drugs came flooding in to keep my mind stable your quest to find out the truth is what killed me was i cheating? you bloody fool, who the hell do you think i am? drop it! just drop it, you've drained my soul curse my soul for loving you though i love you it's true staying with you is impossible living with my guard up is what brought me down and was what pulled us apart i thought we could
5.
bring on cultural estrangement for i reject this aim for status and title i challenge the populous to stand by my side i'm empowered to represent humanity and all that has been discarded of a past way of life a better way of life my goal is to find my purpose in the world and a means to eradicate the tyrant no longer will i be an instrument in the hands of the capitalist

it's raining from the light fixtures the floors wide open swallow me whole don't miss a piece i'll go to hell this christmas only if i'm a good soul this year i've killed you and you've killed me serves us right for playing with knives a swear i've told you otherwise in fact i know for sure yet all my words are castaway and heard as something else i was reckless and irritable precisely why: i couldn't move on but i've moved on to a better place without you i don't know why i just held on simply speaking i adored you but tell me why we played with knives i swear i told you otherwise in fact i know for sure yet all my words are castaway and heard as something else i can't sit still you haunt my mind and cease to go away i've walked away and proudly haven't had to go your way it's raining from the light fixtures the floors wide open swallow me whole don't miss a piece i've killed you and you've killed me serves us right but tell me why it serves us right for playing with knives

mirror gaze. a new reflection. a proud depiction. a conscious rebirth. so many jagged stones his stride has passed assert to leave behind the chemist who aided rest forward motion. reflect on hard days. take from past misfortune that which is for today you're not the ghost of your past self not tomorrow, not today, only yesterday upon a breath absorb all which is granted it's easy to take for granted what we're granted you need not cast away amber flower in bloom like you in bloom be gone. be gone fade further. phantom. foe become a forgotten form of one which once was
