Think. Create. But most importantly, stay alive.

Car Radio

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it’s dire
My time today

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It’s on my sleeve
My skin will scream
Reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I’m driving
There’s no hiding for me
I’m forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something terrifying
‘Cause this time there’s no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it’s that we’re all battling fear
Oh dear, I don’t know if we know why we’re here
Oh my,
Too deep
Please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound

There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win
And fear will lose
There’s faith and there’s sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it’s dire
My time today

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Fake You Out


If you're one of them, you're one of me Ode to Sleep. I'll stay awake becasue the dark's not taking any prisoners tonightI want to drive away
In the night, headlights call my name

I, I’ll never be, be what you see inside
You say I’m not alone, but I am petrified
You say that you are close, is close the closest star?
You just feel twice as far, you just feel twice as far

And I’ll fall
And I’ll break
And I’ll fake
All I wanna

And I’ll fall down
And I’ll break down
And I’ll fake you out
All I wanna

I’m so afraid
Of what you have to say
Cause I am quiet now
And silence gives you space

I’ll never be, be what you see inside
You say I’m not alone, but I am petrified
You say that you are close, is close the closest star?
You just feel twice as far, you just feel twice as far

And I’ll fall
And I’ll break
And I’ll fake
All I wanna

And I’ll fall down
And I’ll break down
And I’ll fake you out
All I wanna

It’s the same game today as it always is
I don’t give these places fake my name explaining this
And the wrists of my mind have the bleeding lines
That remind me of all the times…
I have committed
Dirty dirty crimes that are perfectly form-fitted
To what I’ve done and what I’m doing
I’m brewing and losing and spewing infusing
And believe me that’s what all the kids are doing
What kids are doing are killing themselves
They feel they have no control of their prisoner’s cell
And if you’re one of them then you’re one of me

And you would do almost anything just to feel free…
Am I right? Of course I am
Convince me otherwise would take all night
Before you walk away, there’s one more thing I want to say
Our brains are sick but that’s okay

And I’ll fall
And I’ll break
And I’ll fake
All I wanna

All I wanna
Yeah, and I’ll fall down
And I’ll break down
And I’ll fake you out

All I wanna
Yeah, and I’ll fall down
And I’ll break down
And I’ll fake you out
All I wanna

I’m so afraid
Of what you have to say
Cause I am quiet now
And silence gives you space
