when the whole world’s a song
and you can’t sing along
why is it so hard to say
“I DON’T BELONG”

be as it may i’m kicking and screaming
I hate the language I speak, so much that
I’ll refrain from any kind, callous word

Am I – (waiting?)
Did we shoot so much shit that when push comes to shove
We are but supple putty in the hands of those who only want

WANT for us to stay innocent, docile – pure
WANT for us to promise over a God we cannot see
WANT for us to satisfy dunces who will bend us over

How far will they go
How much can we bow before we
snap in two?

I hate you
I hate yo
I hate y
I hate
I hat
I ha
I h
I
I n
I ne
I nee
I need
I need y
I need yo
I need you

Playing is all part of the game, yeah? But instead of struggling, you’ll win before we start. The rest of the…armed intervention is for show. We gotta keep ‘em looking, ‘specially when they’re all…a few sandwiches short of a picnic, anyhow. No one wants peace and love, no, they wanna see someone fall, catch all the dirty details on video. And about those…non-operative personnel? …Collateral Damage. So what of…public diplomacy when you’ve got vanilla cream and gift wrapped up in big red bows? It’ll be alright, just…copulate with Miss Mary Jane; she’s got nice legs and a sugary sweet smile. Take a break from your picket fence and meet me in the…compassion zone. Have a chat about…end-of-life decision making, and don’t act so surprised. Kid, when you’ve been on the nine-to-five as long as me, you’ll be gagging for it. And think! Someone’s gotta start…depopulating the planet, and they said, change begins with none other than little ol’ me.

( I had a dream about kissing my best friend’s love, woke up sick, but found enough strength to go puke into the porcelain pony, why am I guilty, they’re just thoughts, I haven’t acted on it, what she doesn’t know won’t hurt them, calm the fuck down dude, what’re you even saying)
