Corner of Your Eye [25 Apr 2007|01:59pm]
In the distance figures sit
Waiting for your sight to quit
In the distance figures run
to grab the blind spots caused by the sun
when they grab hold
flight will unfold
they navigate to your ear
now they know what you fear
for they know what you think
and what makes you shrink
It's hard to defend what you don't understand
but you say you know yourself like the back of your hand
the figures put you to the test
either win or have eternal rest

Ink will run and lead will smudge
computers will crash and critics will judge
it's all to be kept in my mind

what the fuck? press rewind!
I meant to say it's all to
be shouted and screamed to you
it's all to be
written and
painted and
drawn and
built and
dreamed to you

it's all to be shared with you,
and you and you and you
it's all to be shared with you.

It hurts to watch the ones you love sinking
to try to understand what the hell they are thinking
It hurts to watch them crave the water
to watch them lose their sons and daughters
It hurts to watch the waves a comin
to watch them relax when they should be runnin
It hurts to watch their planned confessions
to know they never took swimming lessons.

And the trees look down on me
And the clouds look down on me
And the buildings look down on me
I am so small
compared to it all
I am so small
compared to the wall
But that's already been done
Annie get your gun
That's already been done
Girl's just want to have fun
That's already been done
Try to out run
the changing of times
try to out run
the exchanging of rhymes
write original words
set free the caged birds
and then you will see
I will truly be me

SeeSaw [01 Dec 2006|11:36am]
Jack Teeters was always on the verge of something
Never knowing when to sleep or when to sing
Jack Teeters always teetered
Jack Teeters always teetered
Always teetered between happy and sad
Always teetered between lame and rad
Jack Teeters always teetered
Jack Teeters always teetered
Never made up his mind
Now he's falling behind
Teeter Teeter
Totter Totter
Teeter Teeter
Always teetered on whether or not he needed her
Always heard the warnings but never heeded her
Now he's teetering between depression and insanity
Always took her words to be mere vanity
Never realizing he was teetering while she was tottering
Always wanting to ask but never bothering
Jill Totters was all the balance he needed
Jack Teeters no longer teeters instead he gave up now he's defeated.

The girl looks at her life
and realizes she's oddly comfortable
in an unfamiliar place.
She's not located anywhere she's
never been before
but she might as well be.
Everyone's distant and everyone's different.
It's been this way a while now
but it's okay because the girl finally became different...
she had the distant part down.
She didn't cut ties,
she just realized
it was the end of an era
and for once it was okay
because she knew a new happier one
was about to begin.</center.

There is a lump in my throat
and wow I feel it's about to explode,
so please get your scalpel and cut it out.
Yeah yeah yeah cut it out.

And while you're at it could you help a but more?
Could you find the sadness that is my core?
Could you dig and cut until you find it?
Don't worry about me I wont feel it one bit.

I'll be asleep in a land of dreams
while you tear me apart at the seams.
Don't be afraid to go real deep
because thats where most of my despair has seeped.

There is a lump in my throat
and wow I feel it's about to explode,
so please get your scalpel and cut it out.
Yeah yeah yeah cut it out.

When the procedure is done
we'll see if we've won.
We'll see if you've helped at all
or if you failed, leaving me nowhere, leaving me only to fall

life is life
its nothing new
life is life
like blue is blue
it's true there are many different shades
but in the end it eventually fades

This taste of independance
Leaves me with thoughts of vengeance
Pouring down across my mind
Like the sparkle of diamonds
Across a local jewelery case
Or like "perfect" joints laced
With a synthetic beauty of horror
You hide your secrets in your underwear drawer
Like everyone else does
Which means everyone knew where her secret was
But she moved it to a safe place
Where they all are, in that old rugged case
Where they cannot be found
Locked away, safe and sound
From the ears of the world
But not from the mind of the girl

There go the feet and then the legs
It's amazing what happens after smoking some regs
There go the arms and the the hands
It's amazing what happens in these unfamiliar lands
Sitting here I disappear
Sitting here I have no fear
Sitting here I have no tears
Sitting here I have no beer
Sitting here I have no peers
Sitting here I disappear
Watching movies and wishing I was in them
Looking in mirrors and wishing I'd get condemned
Even seeing other people and watching their lives
Only watching actually makes me realize
That everyone's the same
We are all sad and we are all lame

There are ghosts in your house
There are ghosts in your house
So how can you be lonely with ghosts in your house

They want to say hello
but they know
you'll just be afraid
so they hide hide away
They become more wary-er
which makes them kind of scarier

There's a pretty ghost in my house
There's a pretty ghost in my house
So how come I'm so lonely with a ghost in my house

I once knew a girl before the changing of times.
Before she cared about the exchanging of dimes.
She once lived her life for perfection
Always answering the question.
She made people proud
And was considered above the crowd.
But now she's gone and no one seems to miss her.
She won't come back until the world is pure.
Pure like she was when she existed.
Pure like she was before her identity was twisted.

There isn't and never will be
peace on earth.
For this to happen
everyone's brain would be the same.
All opinions would be the same.
No variety.
No arguments.
No debate team.

Everything is so relative.
It all depends on the situation.
The time.
The place.
The crowd.
It doesn't make sense
that you'd do something
in one situation but not the other.
The library will never
knowthe screams of joy
the playground does,
it just doesn't seem fair.

Lost in the labyrinth, the girl blinks her eyes. She knows she's lost something, which is a hindrance, because she knows the way out of the maze but she needs to find the unknown missing object before she can leave. The girl blinks again and she finds herself with a drink in hand, surrounded by people. Eyes sweep over her body. They look for traces of familiarity. Whether these traces remind the eyes of her or another similar body doesn't really matter. She hears the chattering of others before she realizes she is talking herself. A set of eyes found something it liked in her. Two seperate hands conjoined and two seperate bodies are found alone. The hands move as quickly as the hearts beat. Whispers and thoughts are blocked by tongues. Who really needed to hear that anyway? In the middle of the excited fumbling the girls knows what it was she lost. She loses hope of escaping her labyrinth. What she lost was herself. She focuses back on the boy. Maybe his tough hands will find what she's been looking for.

All the boys I touch dissappear
if fading is something you fear
leave me be
but if you want to be lost finding me is key

My friends have become like everything I hate
I love them though and couldn't live without them
Explain that to me
I've become everything I said I wouldn't be
Still stuck in a town
that eats people for dinner
and their dreams for dessert
"If my free-time's gone would
you promise me this,
Please bury me with it"
blaring from speakers in the
back of a car that belongs
to a girl who realizes
she's not happy and doesn't know if
she ever will be
her friends suggest doctors with drugs
but I think she'd much more appreciate receiving meaningful hugs
as much as a numb life sounds appealing
she'd rather have love and all those feelings.

Mr. Sorrow,
curiosity let's you see tomorrow.
Mr. Sorrow says he wants to die,
pills and blades become too shy.
Mr. Sorrow says he wants to live.
He's given about all he can give.
Mr. Sorrow, all you want is love.
The other day I saw you shove
the one you need away.
Mr. Sorrow, she's going to say
you never loved her
and she needn't bother
with you any more. Mr Sorrow,
let's see what's in store for tomorrow.
Mr. Sorrow, I know this fear we share.
Being alone is hard to bare.
Just you and your thoughts, Mr. Sorrow.
If only you had someone else's to borrow.

First entry, short and to the point. [27 Jun 2005|12:13am]
[ mood | lonely ]

Names and faces are just blurring
and memories are reoccuring.
Like a painting that would not smudge
the memory just will not budge.
And I wonder if you're feeling trapped,
or if it's my mind that won't adapt.
