Sometimes it’s pretty easy for us to get caught up in circles of people that all do the same things all like the same things, it’s pretty easy for us to dismiss those who remain outside, or chose not to come in, but that is no excuse for us to lose consideration. Just because they don’t look like you mean that they don’t matter. What are we trying to create? How about a better place!? Why should anyone not partake in life changing moments? Yeah I get it you have a tight clique, get over yourself!

I wish I wasn’t so angry at the world because I fucking hate everything. Sometimes I wish I could wake up in a place where we wouldn’t feel like we’re constantly drowning, fighting to stay afloat. I’m so afraid of becoming everything that I hate, but I can’t let that slow me down. Don’t let that slow you down, don’t ever slow down.

I’m really glad I feel less alone, and that’s a pretty big feat for me; considering that I’m always alone, considering that I’m alone all the time. I’m so glad I have this, and I’m so glad you’re here. Nothing better than seeing a friendly face after such a long drive. Nothing better than hearing a friendly voice to my surprise after such a long drive home, I’ve been driving for so long, thanks for calling on the phone.

What gives you the right? Please shut the fuck up! How can you even try to sympathize? How can you even try to understand? This isn’t your body, so stop pretending your moral high road is righteous because you just sound LIKE A FUCKING IDIOT! What gives you the right? Please shut the fuck up! How can you even try to sympathize? How can you even try to understand? I’m not telling you what’s right or what’s wrong, I’m just saying it’s neither yours nor mine place to talk.

Is it too much to forgive myself, I’ll admit to my wrongs but where does that leave. All the things that I’ve said, it’s too much to keep track, all that I know, is who I am enough? Words and phrases, people, place, contradictions, misconceptions, is it not enough to say feelings are getting hurt? These ghosts will haunt me.

As you woke up in the morning sun the feeling you had last night was gone no matter how hard you try you can live and you can die. The concrete mountains break the clouds if it happens again I’m gonna leave this town, I don't wanna open my eyes I live and I can die. I am free but not for long, my freedom is gone at the end of every song. Broken strings my guitar still sings was the last things that I heard as I fell asleep in a dream in the backseat of my car. On my way to New Orleans searching for a better place but I’m afraid it’s just the same as Saint Petersburg. Well I am free but not for long, my freedom is gone at the end of every song.
