a hand up or a hand out will have you on your way isn't it clear, that no ones here to stay and the next thing that comes up will soon take your place where there is a will there is a way and sometimes it takes a face it's a no brainer give up the chase landing in the laps of the ones who choose to not race smiling at the girls with the toothless duck face not working for themselves at their own kind of pace

i'm glad someone's in love but it doesn't put a thing in my belly love is a cloud that showers pearls that one day i might deserve i'm glad someone's in love but it doesn't put a thing in my belly love is soup in a bread bowl that feeds two if they make room

what's the score? am i too late? to play games, to set things straight is there room to say my peace are we doomed to just compete to consume and just compete connection is why we're here but this shame, it stems from fear the light falls on your eye accurate, no thats a lie this wound will not heal am i cursed to be a scab? dried up, that you pick at a shiny new ribbon says enough this bandage makes a cuff

i hope that i've napped long enough passed the stress that wraps around when anxious attempts drown i would skip these moments even though i might regret it someday i would speed up everyday, mundane until i am far away i won't wake up until the time that dwindles down dissipates beach sound into noise i would skip these moments even though i might regret it someday i would speed up everyday, mundane until i am far away

dissatisfaction is but a symptom of ambition a critic won't build structure doubt is brother demon of despair for a reason doubt is brother demon indecisiveness seems to confuse you failures a problem not to be considered moonchild lost her sister jealousy took over moonchild lost her sister my heart short-stacked i practiced smiling she got her sister back i regained self worth

hands off, no one has dibs on a world which they cannot grow in no land fertile to resolve on parting rivers become oceans a glare touched a pinch of truth only a hint you refuse three more fingers point back at you when you point one right at me descend in a stagnant tunnel perplexed by all your denial walking on your lower lip gaining distance off topic words are powerless without meaning

with nothing for himself keeping his composure sending his deposits, so diffused breathes in and out until a swell of waves smear the bank when the wind exerts itself foreshadowing clouds tell him shattered showers will prevail unless a chance of exposure can cast the fog away now the night draws in and she appears radiant though similar in size, they're not alone she's gentle with each breathe and he admits where the credit was due when the sea reflected her glow knowing what he wanted hoping that she'd agree he has to go, drawn to the horizon hopes to see her come tomorrow

if it wasn't for my eyes being so observant i wouldn't have caught on to your body language but i got the net and it soon became clear something wasn't right as it was before with these old misplaced feelings for the wrong man you only know rebounds another face in the crowd runner up in the contest give a gift to take back how mature is that? what a waste of time i thought you were something else i understand we rushed into things too soon just a little bit absurd how numb you quick became after all that shit we went through you left me high and dry you only know rebounds another face in the crowd runner up in the contest give a gift to take back how mature is that?
