outside 05:54
can i talk to you outside for a moment can you look me in the eyes are you terrified i would ask a million times what is it on your mind all the bodies of everybody all the bodies of everybody the city lights the city streets the music of people walking directions from north to west and east to south and nowhere but somewhere never knowing where it is the we mend nobody ever says the wind is too loud nobody ever says anything for the ones dead or alive if i got lost would you come and run with me in the wild if i got lost would you come and run away with me in the wild in the wild world mmm in the wild the wild the wild world in the wide world in the wide world mmm in the wild world mmm in the wild world

i exist to find out i don't know how je suis vaste d'un paysage pourtant si bref je me révolte et rien ne vient pourtant tout arrive i comfort my discomfort but it still eats me in the end the sun is setting down i stay awake anyway so many tales inside i don't know why i am made this way fine art a recollection dark dreams and lack of hope fine dreams a dark collection high fever and broken bones everyone getting gold hands but i am stuck with silver it's a strange feeling sorrow i constellate [a fiction] once i was ordinary* now i'm involved with emotions i don't even know the present the past and all the things, i always thought i'd never be afraid everyone getting gold hands but i am stuck with silver *sylvia plath

there's a voice in your head saying those demons they're not your friends they're talking they're screaming they're creeping in the night there's a voice in your head saying those demons they're not your friends take them by the hand they'll drown you in hell is your computer making a weird noise again but oh wait, it's not that it's your brain high on some meds or marijane again [that's why you're insane] found asleep at the wheel again this morning said you'd been driving through the night to forget some things in the car the smell of the smoke and the radio still playing this sad song to remind you that everything has still gone out wrong it's your new millennium workout routine learn to let go it's your new millennium workout routine just learn to let go gotta learn to let go learn to let go just let go just let it go let it all go

winter 03:35
i stand with that soft ice on my face vast field and some kind of blooming tree little breeze of an infinite wind time is slow and somehow frozen in the mountains in the night tall shadows haunting the plains ahead i see all bright and clear just the beauty of a blissful reverie captured the snow in a sight open window to the south everyone asleep still life and soothing light outside all those distant suns they [a]rise one's going to the eye to the hand and to the other eye our hands they want to touch what our eyes see hold on, just hold on to the reverie velvet blue sky lets on an icy white moon dark and shimmering night i've got all those birds flying in front of me all those trees growing up within me

i am a storm i saw a light came back took me by surprise again tonight did you look at the sea bed did it take you instead of the birds i'm psycho over the moon i think too much my feelings creep out just like that everynight i hate myself at least ten times a day but it passes me by it passes by and it goes by i think i swallowed the tide the tide you were once my friend now i don't know what we are anymore it's life it's fine i guess birds gone wild i can't take nothing nothing nothing back it hurts my head i want what i should not and what should not desires me i think too much it creeps me out the more i see the less i want the less i want the more i see i'm stuck can't go home not alone so i let it go [psycho] i let it flow

soft & slow sounds
from somewhere
between the sea
and the sky
hoping to comfort one
somehow,
sometimes
in the darkest times
