life is a beach, I can kick it
you gotta learn to float before you can start swimming
now I'm familiar with living on the edge of comfortability
and it seems California's finding joy in killing me
one day will it really make sense
or is that something we've been telling ourselves to make amends
with the realization our dreams don't like being chased and
your impact is less than a smudge on a finger painting
so I'm rearranging my thought process
in attempt to reconnect, it may be a work in progress
but I stay honest, even if it means
that until I learn to seize the day I'll keep holding it hostage
no nonsense is the approach obviously
follow me if you're into polishing your flaws clean
walking along the sky's limits
where this bird's eye view is worth more than blind optimism

just don't drag me down with excuses anymore
I don't care what happens next

life is a garden, I can dig it
you gotta wear gloves in this world so frigid
working my digits in the dirt until the skeletal frame is exposed
I grow it all back in new layers, the truth is labor
painstaking at best but I just savor it
the only things I'm bringing to my table are my favorites
I'm a live it like I love it cause I do well sometimes
even if I don't leave the house when I'm gun shy
socially I mean I lean on stress
anti-degenerates seeking the sentiments only when stress is imminent
I guess that misery hates company but needs it
seeds of reason planted deep so roots will benefit

it's all irrelevant, quit back pedaling
the skeletons are pounding on your door, don't let em in
swallow your medicine and those delicious sedatives
squeezing this train of thought through the tunnel my head is in
and the light at the end is overwhelming again
infuriating, but how could I not be curious
burning this candle at every angle till it turns on us
as usual but I will emerge from the dust with...

a tourniquet wrapped around the burdens of my earnestness
curbing it to be enthused and used as social lubricants
it's an amusement loosely soothing wounds for part time inhabitants
stabbing a westward full of the lonely and frozen contaminants
it's never enough to punch a hole through, just merely scratch the surface
alternate versions of an angle maimed and mangled from perversion
it’s nothing personal, it's just a circle of inclusion that I use as mental curtains
