I'm broke and wondering where all my money went.
Questioning what was the last thing I bought and if it was money well spent.
I had to work for what some of my friends already had for years.
Kind of a fucked reality but then again, who cares?
I'm watching all of my heroes become human.
Free balling life while trying to take the next step, yeah, I'm cruising.
Working hard for what many had all along.
If you think there's someone answering your prayers then you're all wrong.
Opportunity and equity are two very different things.
We all can grow but where we go can affect whether we're winning or losing.
I'm so consumed by my desires sometimes it burns me.
Taking the next step is hard but we're all forever learning.
My life is just one big broken machine.
I need tools and parts to fix it and I'm still searching.
All that time I spent waiting and wishing for some to rescue me.
The only person who can answer my prayers is me.
i feel i am an acquired taste
maybe i'm not everyone's
cup of tea
i am one who will
have the right words to say
but will search high and low
even down the back of the couch
to find ones that will fit
to make you smile
just so i know
you are happy
i won't always have the answers
to life's whys
but if you give me reason
i will believe in you
and follow your lead
to the ends of the earth
my only pleasure
will be in
my giving you
i seem to be
it's just how
my heart works
and i can't change it
no matter how hard
i guess most others
want the one
they share their life with
to have spirit
to be feisty
to be strong
but i am very often
none of those things
in my own way
i am them all
i come as a package deal
complete with fairy lights
a quiet soul
and a sunny disposition
i don't know if that's annoying
but like i said
i'm not everyone's
cup of tea
but i like coffee
so maybe it doesn't matter
all that much
so for now
i will keep it
for when the moment comes
and someone asks
to take me out to tea
i will wait
behind my eyes
eyes which will always
look upon you
I'm looking forward to fucking nothing
The words I need to say are buffering
Somewhere down this line there is some sort of reward
I'm aimlessly trying to move forward
Get away from me, don't you see that I don't speak unless there's meaning
As far as I'm concerned everyone outside of family is temporary
As of late, I feel restrained, being held back from everything that matters to me
So consumed by what I think I need,
I don't have the fucking luxury of choosing to be happy
Every road block I crash into takes a peice of me in some way
I'll never forget that winter where I was scarred and permanently changed
Frozen in time taking everything in
So much self reflection took place that it made every mirror I stared into bend
All that I felt and thought, you could never relate
I promise that you would die if you had to bare my weight
And I don’t need help from you or anyone to get me through this
Here I go again believing I'm not a broken man
My voice falls on deaf ears
I want to hear what I haven't heard in 4 years
I want to abandon hope, because hope is what's leaving me hurt the most
Maybe to feel nothing and lonely is the life meant for me
I was foolish to think that I could be anything but alone
Getting lifted up only to be put down
Believing I could get lured by someone else to happiness is a belief only justified by faith
And though I want to seclude myself and be invisible at my own will
The will of the world says I shall remain the way I am now;
Screaming and shouting to be seen and heard
But ultimately cast aside destined to be forgotten
Yet one has to be remembered in order to be forgotten.
I've been left out and cast aside
My shadow is all that's by my side
I'm waiting for my turn
So much luggage I carry from the past
I can't ask for help cause' nothing lasts
Let downs are always expected
The world has spoken,
Promising to let you down is the only way I won't let you down
No one can come in
I'm not ready to go somewhere I've never been
That's why I won't pull anyone in
What I keep inside is deterring
I'll remain a stone unturned
Demanding what I'll never earn
Because I'm a peice work
A job that probably won't get done.
In the prologue of relapse
I realized my last time was my last
Back when more things weren't right
I'd escape in the night
And put myself somewhere in the clouds
Emptiness embraced me
Nothing has changed lately
Dead leaves were covered in white and brought greener trees
Back? Oh God I'm not going back
Now... I know where I want to be but just don't know how
Alone. Just accept I'll die forever being on my own
I thought that I'd get through it all
That it wouldn't be so easy to fall
I'm laying here in bed, never felt so small
I know this night will kill me if you don't call
My phone is not on mute but it doesn't make a sound
Didn't think it would take so little to push me to the ground
I'm not even under water, yet it feels like I have drowned
I would reach the surface again if only you were around
For such a long time I was blind
Thinking that you were a valuable find
You've left a haunting echo in my mind
and it's impossible to leave this shit behind
You're drawn to trouble and it's killing you yet again
There you are drowning in the puddle you thought you could swim in
You can't make an ocean out of a lake by splashing water
And when it comes to bullshit I swear you're such a sucker
Just like how I'm a fool for happily ever after
What do you look for?
What do you seek?
What you need, Let me read loud and clear
Listen well, my dear
A dash of a smile
The warmth of a hug
There aren’t you snug?
Maybe a kiss
More of this bliss!
So just in time
Sing like a chime
But will this work?
You may ask
There may be a little perk
But you cannot acquire
This one true desire
It sings like charm
It makes us all warm
But it hides
Yet it’s wide
All around us
Can’t you see the glow?
For you must trust
me ∨ you just don’t know
You met him at a party in two thousand seven.
He cheesily asked if you had fallen from heaven
You laughed and said "is that the best you can do?"
He said I must be a snowflake, because I've fallen for you.
Despite the silly pick up lines, you agreed to dance all night
He walked you home and at the door you gave him an invite
You were kissing til the sunrise and he promised you to call
You texted your best friend, saying, "for this guy, I could fall"
He asked you out the next day, you were excited as can be
You walked hand in hand in the park and carved your names into a tree
Everything felt so perfect and you knew he'd be the one
That would make you feel that with every other guy - you're done
After one year of dating , he asked you to be his
You happily shouted out "YES!" and gave him a big kiss
In a white church you were married, wearing a white dress
It was the wedding you've always dreamt of, truly a success
You moved into a big house, after a few years you got knocked up
You were supposed to be happy but you kind of felt locked up
It was the life you've always imagined, everything was going well
Yet you felt so suffocated, as if you were imprisoned in a cell
You were stuck in a rut, but too comfortable to change it
You knew what it would take but you still wouldn't arrange it
In your big house you were stuck, feeling miserable and numb
But if someone asked you how you were doing you held up your thumb
The sparks that once flew around you, have burnt out long ago
When you were making love, in his eyes there was no glow
You used to be his muse but now you're just his spouse
The passion you once shared is buried beneath the house
