I try to keep a level head

When I'm working with people

Who see nothing more to life than "living"

When I hear all of these life analogies

I feel like vomiting all over whoever said it


They say not to be be cynical at a young age

But not to be a crazy drunk heathen either

So what are who suppose to do?

Just live in houses and drink Starbucks?


No baby

We're all gonna die someday

With that being said

Why should it matter

How much you tip the waiter

You could also just be cool and not hurt anyone too


Why can't I go with my lover on a fraight train

And drink whisky or play cards with local tramps?

I guess bums in the 1930's had it good

Hear me out though...

I believe if you took Franny from "Ironweed"

And showed him how trivial the future was going to be

He would just wnat to die sooner


They say everyone's an artist

But art is to be interpreted as either s***ty or good

This honestly should be number one right now.
