I don’t know why
But it’s like I can’t stay quiet
This is my voice
I can’t let it die inside me
See I’ll be scared if there wasn’t a riot

Pushin and pullin, grabbin some hair,
Pukin and fuckin up the sidewalk
This battle makes it interestin’
I abide desires
Like a dog pissin on the hydrant

Just to spite the fireIt’s not to be taken lightly
The page is a set of eyelids
The booth is an instrument that God created
To record us tryin to find him

But don’t let the word throw you off
Religion and spirit are two different pilots
Just know that it’s bigger than me and my ego
When I’m flyin’

Take me higher
I’ve got somethin to pray for
Please leave me when I’m guided
Who said that life is cinema
This is epic, be present
I’m right here

Selfish, selfish, selfish me, yeah, me
Yeah, girlfriend, break-up, new one, one-nightstand, cheat, cheat, repeat that

Drug use, clean up, drug use, drug use, clean up, drug use, rehab
Fuck you I suck dude, self-loathing, self-esteem, ego, then me again

Put a soundcheck right in the middle
A never ending quest to try and get fans
There you have a beginning, a middle and a really shitty end

Nah, give me a break through, can I get a montage, come on I need that  Humble me, give me a conflict, a hardship, let me break through this cement

They’re gonna be so disappointed when they roll the credits in
I realized that my movie sucked and I was the only one that could edit it

Well the course, the chain of events, that would be the evidence, some say it’s coincidence
I say I found something greater than myself and started accepting it
And I can see, feel, taste and smell again

And I’m the only one with the hammer to break this shell I’m in
It’s gonna take me crackin’ this mirror to finally be myself again

Met my potential a long time ago and I’m not stopping ’til I resemble him

(I got soul but I’m not a soldier...)

“What I’m trying to say is that somehow I believe reincarnation is just a poetic expression of what collective memory really is. There was this article by this biochemist that I read not long ago, and he was talking about how when a member of our species is born, it has a billion years of memory to draw on. And this is where we inherit our instincts.”

Waking Life (2001) dir. Richard Linklater

A tribute to my first mutual ever daddyfuckedme.

The booth is an instrument that God created,
To record us tryin to find Him.

Humble me.
Give me a conflict.
A hardship.
Let me break through this cement.
They’re gonna be so disappointed when they roll the credits in,
I realized that my movie sucked, and I was the only one that could edit it.
Well the course, the chain of events, that would be the evidence, some say it’s coincidence…

…I say I found something greater than myself and started accepting it.

Making out in the cinema

tinybirdlover wanted me to do barduil making out in the cinema because my last one was cruel, and I can’t refuse her anything

Making out in the cinema

Bard honestly did not know why they bothered to go to the cinema, it wasn’t like it was free.

And he knew that Thranduil had the money to burn, but seriously, it seemed like a bit of a waste of it, that money could’ve bought a pizza or two.

And of course he loved spending time with Thranduil, whatever they were doing, even if they were just lounging around together not really doing anything at all.

And it’s not that he didn’t love the cinema, he did, he really did.

But it would be nice to be able to actually watch the film.

It’s not like he was complaining about Thranduil’s tendency to distract him throughout the entire film, it’s not like he would ever complain about Thranduil’s kissing him and slowly migrating into his lap as the film went on unseen.

But really, it’s not like they needed to spend almost ten quid each just to make out in the back row.

Which was, incidentally, exactly what they were doing right now.
