walking in place everyday, contemplating the pace
that won't ever change and I don't have a reason to
stay where I've been to no end, there's never an answer
for questioning passion forever and after
the image is blurry through the various channels
I'm surfing on top of tsunamis for wavelengths I travel
though constantly searching for the next thing to battle
my head is a constant babbling creek and the least of the things I can handle

another morning, another lesson to let fade
or get saved in my back pocket as I step away
from yesterday's misunderstood interpretations of my
self indulgent offerings, though honestly you never caught the breeze
and that's fine, these times are a bad game of chess
when the pieces are buried in sand to their heads
or tangled up wrapped in a black widow’s web
it’s generally safe to assume that we’ve accepted the end

the feeling is mutual

only wearing these shoes cause I’m used to what’s suitable

the feeling is mutual

to be lost in translation when normal’s unusual

still I won’t waste my time
no time for those overpriced lies
still I can’t change my mind
it’s decided, there’s no use in fighting it

lost in a dream, everything's not what it seems
when I try to leave rearrange the focus, strained thoughts, stranger notions
now I've been crossed twice doubly, mumble my subtleties someone will comfort me
lust lurking lavishly searching for cavities
unraveled sanity while slightly panicking
xanax and cannabis makes manic practical
passionate anecdotes sabotaged not unobtainable
seeking relief trapped like animals

from the intangible walls of a panic room
built by the ghost of a past life attacking you
everybody knows what's best, take it all with a grain of salt when you bleed
pour it on the wound, why wouldn't you be in love with mediocrity
unraveled sanity spilling out casually
any place I might wander dragging around apathy
I have what I need to be happy, so don't ask me
to try to compromise myself and what keeps me balanced
