Driving Home 10:03
I’ve grown tired of this Suffered enough and seen enough I just want to go I just want to know Where is home? Some just ask It’s never easy when the maker... The maker isn’t there. I’ll answer my own questions I’ll find my own way I’ll find your arms and warmth I’ll find my way home I’ll answer all your prayers After I answer mine I’ll ask them for a little Just a little peace of mind Find my way Find your warmth Find my way Find your heart I’m on the final road The sun’s orange then red, then dusk An air of culmination The day turns to rust Turn the key, crank the heat The sounds of my life My breath is in the air The horizon’s growing near Find my way... Find my way back home...
Monster 06:49
Force the will of others Contemplate their virtues Sell your visions to them I don’t care if your wrong Why have we become each others enemy? What’s all of this for? Become the monster You know you’ll take their hands and put them in the fire Become the monster You know you’ll take his head and CUT IT OFF! Argue their ideals Claim your independence Rise high above it all Set them all on FIRE!
He sits in the den and begins to write his story “So many years ago...” Now something eats away at the first word and sentence It’s coming so fast This is the one This is my This is the one This is my Story And in the end when There is nothing more to say You will look away, and I will Share my story Upon deaf ears And we will become Another man’s verse With pen in hand Dark conclusions reveal a Truth, and now there’s nothing left to hide The thief grabs his heart He wants it all and now With death this story ends
It grows behind my eyes Clawing at my brain Can’t ignore the signs Looking at the world through pain A piece of something bigger Bursting from my brain Just embrace the monster Part of me now it’s my grain Take the wheel now, there’s nobody stopping me Gotta feel for the thing that’s inside Drawing near to a new understanding Pushing fear to the back of the mind Staring down the wave that’s coming Knowing it can’t knock me down Fifteen stories tall, I’m ready Fuck it, I will stand my ground Now I’m breaking through Through the pain, I can make out some faces Pushing on, I break through the door Blinding lights drilling holes in my head now Focus in past the deafening roar Now I’m breaking through
Temple 05:34
If I could find my way Then I wouldn’t have to stay If I could turn my head around Then the nights unleashed the owls The secondary’s always numb and bleeding The corners are always burned and broken Well, it seems I’ve found my way And I just had to stay It appears my mouth is on the floor Wear the sweater, it’s adorned The secondary’s always numb and bleeding The corners are always burned and broken Summon cherry red and white Face impact, then we fly I’m in my temple
I’m trapped in a wordless nightmare It’s pushing the air out of me Watching the clock and wondering The end of time, I guess we’ll see Let me in, and take me over Who are you to tell me “sorry” Here is my hand, and here is your life Forget this work, forget it’s worth Staring at beautiful things while Taking on the ugly ones Getting sick of being tired I’m tired of being sick Is this what you wanted?! Choking on my own tears Living life to erase my fears These words built these walls But today it’s all coming down Is this what you wanted?! Once more it comes down to this An eerie calm after the storm Verse of whatever reborn Forget the chorus, and I’ll go home
Sick 08:39
You walk the line Took all that’s mine And let me tell you how it should be Hand to a hand To an eye for an eye Denied. For you! Get in your car and drive away! And take everything you can From a dying savior That wretched old woman ITS FUCKING SICKENING! Always the same thing A knife, a monkey Lack of money, it’s non-existent Face to face with stupidity at it’s finest ASSHOLE! Now I’m here! Nothing to do Drink a beer and Set me free of This depressing fear ITS FUCKING SICKENING! You think it’s all about you It shows what you know You can’t control me! Fuck everything you stand for It’s all a fucking lie You can’t deny me NOW! And you! With your attitude, your arrogance You’re everything I never wanted to become Hung up on your “knowledge” MOTHER FUCKER! Now I’m here! It’s fucking sickening ITS FUCKING SICKENING!
As the raven flies over me I watch my life My dreams, unfold
Raven 16:36
This time of year Contemplation, changing colors Peace as you breathe in and pain as you breathe out A story of recurring themes but nothing is quite like what it seems And the year, turns another face And another one turns away Brought to life learning the simple things Letting lies in, speak for yourself! All I see Examples and ideas I will be What’s in your eyes for me to see As the raven flies over me I watch my life My dreams, unfold Writing life as I go Poetry settles in the distance Following, leaving the herd Looking ahead, and over you These lessons learned The reasons go unheard Why these things, they change Mother left me to contemplate Can we please exchange Chapters written in moments Share your story with me And maybe we’ll be closer
