I've been slippin,* Eventually fell on my *** Laid there on the concrete, Evaluated the cracks
There they were connected Perfect little fragments A picture to me was reflected So I picked myself up off the pavement
Then I caught the street lights, Bright in my peripheral Standing tall in front of dark houses Of disconnected individuals
Two for the price of one Morals half off Discounted beliefs Aisle 93, you lost?
Right by the worker, With the smile upside down "Which one..?" It seems each employee's already hit the ground..
But they haven't gotten back up
Don't pay attention Flip on the telly Take advantage of those ads Fill up ya belly
Contact your doctor Take those pills! You act with compassion Surely, you are ill
"Maybe I am Time to face and confess it I was happy growing my own medicine Until I got arrested"
This make up is the best! Animal tested You'll be the next pretty face Thanks for your investment!
It's 5 o'clock somewhere Let's get beer with the bros! Bring back some chicks to the crib Who thinks they can drive home?
So I try to stay away from that reality Brainwashed to the system To become an inevitable casualty
So many in that realm Think they're better than everyone else Speak in tongues Just to get the prize on the shelf Play with it a little bit Then sneak away in stealth Get something new With all the hours you spent for wealth
What about your health?
On the other side of the spectrum Are the hurt, waiting for the cure-all Put down by other hurt people Numb the pain with alcohol Infectious depressions Brought to you by society I'm sorry, but, It seems like a lot of lies and wasted time to me
Because you're beautiful And don't ever forget it Now tell that to the mirror And remember who said it
And so I delve Inside myself Many know what's wrong Yet too apathetic to help
I can see my ego still alive in me Take a step back, pause and breathe Lose identity in the forest, among the trees Wind from mother nature's lips helps me release It stimulates my soul, and puts my mind at ease And when I look up to the sky I know I have all I need
-I'm so glad I fell-
I realized I'm beautiful, & I'll never forget it I have my own faultlines Imperfectly splendid Looked into the mirror Ride in the eyes - introspective Then I smiled But honestly, only because I absolutely meant it~
