What's up You are asleep Or maybe you was captured by a giant yodeling ant eater **** That some crazy **** that flew out of my fingers I'm a wizard One of a kind Pef Pooof Still the same.... I used to talk to stoves But now I got this painting Quietly Sitting inside an upside down hourglass Twiddling my thumbs rotating my cancer in my hand I got this musical Notes playing out of this clever earmuff So soothing that I fall into a slipped universe Got these pictures on my wall Shows what the past looked like sometimes it just speaks to you and manipulates you just like a painting

This started as a text message. Dome how ended like this huh!
Here. Impress me. Take your appearance and character And put it under a stress sheet It's light enough to ignore But it keeps away the best heat It puts up an impenetrable wall Between where my head and my chest meet. All the time I'm thinking What's the way to best beat This self consciousness we feel It just seems to oppress me.
But what if I told you That I'm really not that great That everything about me Is the thing that I most hate. I get wrapped up in myself And the status of my current state All the while forgetting That I don't determine my own fate. See I don't have the power To end or create But I worry and I wonder And by then it's too late.
See I wanna be impressive I want people to know my face When they think of success I want them to think Sam Chase. But it's not up to me What ideas others embrace No matter how much I try It's their thoughts and their space. I can't determine What they think of my case All I can change Is the way I see my own face.
If I let others determine The worth I see in myself I might as well give up Pack up life. Back on the shelf. Finding worth in others Is a sure ticket to hell Cause I abandon who I am My thoughts I never tell. Until I pick up this pen Let go of my shell There's not a rope in the world To pull me back from where I fell
So let's try this.
I'm gonna be someone different Someone I've not been around you You're gonna see some new things My emotions might surprise you You might think I'm weird Because of the things that I do But this is me. I just never let it shine through. Yeah I have my quirks That I never show beside you. Cause I've always been too worried Too scared I'd be left behind you.
Not anymore. No today I'm really me What you get is what you get What you see is all you'll see I'm being really honest. I'm focused on transparency. I WANT you to see trough See through to how I just Be. I'm not gonna hold back I'm just gonna try to be free So you do the same thing. When I say here. Impress me.
