Something kinda sad about
the way that things have come to be.
Desensitized to everything.
What became of subtlety?
How can it mean anything to me
If I really don’t feel anything at all?
I’ll keep digging
Till I feel something.
Elbow deep inside the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.
Shoulder deep within the borderline.
Relax. Turn around and take my hand.
‘I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.’ – Evard Munch
My mind, out of my mind, in my mind’s eye
You’ve got mirrors in front of your eyes
You can’t see truth for self-obsession
Compromise, why don’t you live your life
Are you so scared you’ll be forgotten
As you stare into the sun?
Are you scared, you’ll be forgotten
As you stare into the water?
In time you will arrive with a clear mind
You’ll be sure, you’re not afraid of a freefall
Words can’t say all the things that you feel
No faith that they’ll outlive you anyway
Down and out but no one’s writing a book
Altruistic or just trying to shine bright
Are you scared you’ll be forgotten
As you stare into the sun, as you stare into the water?
