I don’t know if this is right. Is this what I should be doing with my life?
Stay up at night, insomnia keeps me warm, eyes wide open, steady, waiting for the storm or the smoke alarm. Thinking of all my hardships, all the demons I keep on lock & all the bullshit. Poorly managed lifestyle- I’m always on a fringe, binge to binge, I’d like to escape it for a while, but this is it: this is the life that I had dreamt of.
All that happened was supposed to in an effort to be loved. Now my dreams are nightmares on wax, panic attacks, I wish time was kinder. I wish I was less bitter, in need of a twin cities winter, made from frozen wood, but I am just a splinter.
Back to the grind, always beginner, try to stay fresh in my mind, but this is real life like: Stare at the monitor all day, then get home to my guitar and I hope that it plays.
Work for shit-wage and I hope that it pays, On this lonely island, I’m trapped in a decade. Limits bend at the frigid ends of an empire that’s soon to die. But after all, these dreams were made to decay and they were built on mud that slides. But I’m in it for the ride. Self Sacrifice, float with the tides, keep writing my verses til I reach the other side. Keep punching clocks just to survive, keep punching clocks til I learn how to provide. I hope that it all goes right, Hope I catch up with my sub-conscious in the night, a form of stage fright. I’m not scared of the stage, I’m scared of the crowds not sticking around, making me question my life.
