Hello, nice to meet you Let me hear all about your job Goodbye, hope to see you Never again in this lifetime, oh my God You talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk about your dental plan I wait and pause and watch the clock and hope that you'll stop droning on why can't you understand? I HOPE YOUR TEETH FALL OUT You built your life on concrete while I built mine on the sand The foundations of your neighborhood are as safe as they are bland So follow the leader Follow don't question why Jonathan just shut your face why do you think I care? About your interview with your company where they brought you to Outback Steakhouse for a beer... You built your life on concrete while I built mine on the sand The foundations of your neighborhood are as safe as they are bland So follow the leader Follow don't question why

Tattoos crawling all up her sleeves Crimson lipstick with the eyeliner wings Cold stare gazing nonchalantly But when she smiles at me I forget how to breathe I hadn't seen her in at least 3 years Since her arms were bare and so austere Warm eyes flashing fervently Still when she smiled at me I forgot how to breathe I have to know Is this a figment? Brought from my past Come to haunt me and rattle all my cages I'm shook I want to know if I can live like this again Give me something real that I can hold

I still have the red Starburst that you got me for my birthday last May And I still have the Kindle but now I hate to read When I turn the page I always see your face Was it age? Was it distance? The sum of both too great to make you stay Is it love? Is it anguish? To hope that this goddamn Kindle breaks I hope it fucking breaks (some ooo's and shit go here) 24, kinda selfish Knowing you're too good for goodness sake 26, kinda desperate The world keeps telling you there's no time to waste or it'll be too late I say fuck the world and everyone Let their expectations fall into the sky We'll be fine defined by us alone On an island eating starburst till we throw up red These words don't narrate anything These plots progress prosaically On a tablet that you gifted, my thoughts are always shifted to the Paperwhite between my fingertips Focus has been lacking Brain's always unpacking Emptying the remnants of the months that we both shared The pages will keep turning. Your absence will stop burning. I will learn to love to read again. The pages will keep turning. Your absence will stop burning. I will learn to love to read again. I will learn to love to read again I will learn to love to read again

I still don't think I'm weird at all I still just think I'm complicated No more wishing for someone to vibe me in my natural stasis Take me as I see myself don't ask me to accommodate Would rather watch The Mummy with Ben Frasier than pontificate IMOHTEP IMOHTEP (Anuksanamun) IMOHTEP IMOHTEP (Anuksanamun) There's so much more to this that they will never know Don't cast me off just quite so easily I'm lying through my teeth when I miss all their calls Excuses plunging out to flood your words and all I hear is, "IMOHTEP"

Evading the truth Answers forthcoming can never stop running like What's my intent? The reason my soul has been stuffed in this bag of bones When you don't know your place in life Tired and severed forever whatever'd Just look straight up toward the sky And scream at the top of your lungs, "I'll be fine" Advice is always easier to give We're listening for answers while finding the shapes in the clouds See how they turn From the purest of whites to the darkest glow of concern When you don't know your place in life Tired and severed forever whatever'd Just look straight up toward the sky And scream at the top of your lungs, "I'll be fine"

We live in a cesspool, a septic tank, a gigantic sewage complex in which runs the dregs, the filth, the misery-laden slop of the race of men: his hatred, prejudices, passions, and violence. And the keeper of this sewer: man. He is a scientifically advanced monkey who walks upright, with eyes wide open into an abyss of his own making. His bombs, fallout, poisons, radioactivity everything he designs as an art for dying.
