We are young. This is our era of instant gratification. No explanations, no apologies. The grandest of opportunities. They’re going to call us stupid and reckless anyway, so stop worrying about what you should or should not do. If it makes you happy, and it harms no one, do it. Do whatever the fuck you want while you can. Let this be your era of instant gratification.

Lost

I am lost.
Need a god.
Somewhere to go when it’s all over.
I am blind.
Give me eyes.
Kaleidoscope the world in color.


Don’t have time to meditate the meaning of the rain.
Synchronize our memories til we all think same way.

Cuz I get lost.
Need a god.
Help me put my world in order.

I don’t wanna know the truth.
(I conceive a better way to lie.)
I just need to feel secure again.
(The witnesses evaded.)
Codify my wasted youth.
(Everywhere I look I feel the weight.)
So I don’t feel this meaningless again.
(So wait it out now.)

Tickle my animal instincts, survive.
Capable, sociable, subject, I’m part of the pack.

I know a guy,
somewhere,
whose got a guy,
from town,
who knows a guy,
from around,
whose gotta die.

We crave a greater existence, survive.
Attainable, modified purpose.
I’m part of the pack.

I know a guy,
somewhere,
whose got a guy,
from town,
who knows a guy,
from around,
whose gotta die.

I know a guy,
somewhere,
whose got a guy,
from town,
who knows a guy,
from around,
whose gotta die.

Citizen of the world.

I called my sister’s cousin, uncle, friend, made sure to trust them time and time again.

I am lost.
Need a god.
Somewhere to go when it’s all over.
I am blind.
Give me eyes.
Kaleidoscope the world in color.

Don’t have time to meditate the meaning of the rain.
Synchronize our memories til we all think same way.

Cuz I get lost.
Need a god.
Help me put my world in order.

Oh no, he said a bad word.
We should burn him at the stake,
desecrate his name,
spit on him from high horses.
Exaggerate the shame.
He’s ignorant and vulgar.
So evil we can tell,
he’ll surely rot in hell.
A homophobic sociopath, a menace to us all.

He’ll take the fall.

The group is never ending.
The group grew from decay.
The group is darkness, father.
Heaven selected the truth as pain.


…the fall.

The group is never ending.
The group grew from decay.
The group is darkness, father.
Heaven selected the truth as pain.
