I sit so calmly post ominous harmony, caution surrounding me, pardon my boundaries
out of these getting I am what's been eating me, leaving these skin and bones home for the evening
keeping it evenly odd as apologies defacing property, let out sighs audibly
got to be honest no option just policy, open door anyway locking it bothers me
this is my instrument tuned for the soothing, eluding to nothing, I'm touching all bases
encased in a network of passages mazes, entangled in massive interwoven paths
I breathe in and laugh from the lust of my lunacy, loosely encrypted depictions are soon to be
etched and exhumed from the tomb of experience, words are not worthless when memory mirrors it

I have been working on trying to work out how I can actually find myself
only time will tell if these expectations are attainable or I'm playing the fool
as I'm digging a hole in the center of whatever's left from my soul to my head
swallowing the pride that I've taken for never allowing myself to be following trends
intelligence isn't pretentiousness, dumb it down then mark it up for the sell of it
if you're spoon feeding there's nothing to chew on no matter however you measure it
sacrificing a blue sky for the benefit of expressing more than recurring emptiness
drifting out on the pacific has never been better than this

we've always tip toed through the hallways in the corridors of time
every corner of our minds is intertwined within the visions
of a calculated life as if the balance will subside
to a place beyond the valley of the shallowest existence
wow, we're always trying to dig so deep
we try to keep it to ourselves because we're selfish
proud, we always end up digging too deep
we never listen to advice and now it’s helpless

riding away on a black tidal wave
or a dark highway where the silence won't break
to find me a place maybe I can escape
my whole life on a page is mine to erase

revision to flip script, simpletons misprint syllables, fiddle with little encryptions
this is not anything, energy surging to emptiness, letting it out in the open
and soak in the rays in an actual haze, blaze obvious, possible laziest optimist
commonly placed and I'm faced with a lack of conviction, you're missing the point of my vision
I make these mistakes and it takes me a second to recognize pain in the daily reflections
a messy messenger, many lessons learned, plenty of open ended questions vetted
they'll want you to stay if you worry the one with the willingness wanders away with the syllabus
killin em slowly but surely in slumber, it's true the phoniest number is two

no longer staring at my own reflection like I need the answer to every question
I'm stepping in, might as well call it progression or better yet it's just a lack of regressing
whatever it is that I'm settling in I can witness it all from this plateau
when that feeling of insanity grows I try to put forth my best apathy pose
and crash on the shore of what keeps me awake at night, I can stay quiet but can't tame the lions
breaking the iron bar cages that they are enslaved in, eating the sheep I've been counting
cowering from the empowerment of six thousand perpetual jagged edges
to my head that I'm draining through my nervous system and out of a pen
