Why does this have to be so difficult
When I just want them to like me?
Why does my mouth not stop when it’s supposed to
When I find myself being disgusting again?
If I really believed
And you had the chance to die in my name again
I’m only human
There are like
Billions of us
And I was never kingly
Chivalry sounds like something you do when you stab someone
I’ve never stabbed anyone
How come you made all these other poets famous and not me?
Do they serve beer in heaven?
I like beer
But beer is bad for me
Am I bad for me?
What part of me does audacity come from?
I survived cancer
But somehow feel defeated
When I can’t get a phone number
I am only human
But am made from your image
And I know everyone says you’ve got a sense of humor
So I just wanna know what carnival mirror
I fell out of
Careless like a soda stain on an end table
Bitter like my mouth an hour after coffee
Why can’t I sleep at night?
Are ghosts real because I think my house is haunted?
If I was born to do something when will I know?
Or if there really are answers somewhere
Where should I go?
Is my life really just some kind of TV show?
Is it boring?
Is it long?
Is it going to be short?
Hey Hey Hey
Do you hear me?
If I truly believed
Would you tell me?
Because I know for sure I was built funny
My ears aren’t small enough to withstand
The bass drum boom
Of the things my heart keeps sayin?
Speaking with a sound
Like a train
Always heading forward
But never knowing
Where to go
