You can be free, But not too free. You can say what you want, But here’s the script you need to read from. You have your own thoughts and opinions, But only what we implant.
Emotion. The one true feeling that seperates us from them.
I think it's about time for the change to be birthed. It's about damn time for the truth to be heard. It is about that time for the tables to be turned. A second where all the lies will finally be burned.
Control. Let it go hold it in Breathe Control. Hit a wall Scream so loud Breathe Control. Uncontrolable emotions Cry like mad

She stands outside; the sun's to her back; Her shadow keeps her from being alone. It's an autumn day, the sky is blue, It dawns on her how time has flown.

Goverment For you we must excel But, how can we without the proper funds
Day in, and day out there is a voice inside my head
voice mono toned, deaf to all ear. unable to relent nor express deep fear controlled by all sides of other people expressions able to listen but unable to be heard words struggle to escape the mind

what litters my Mind, is the Mind itself. how self-absorbed and arrogant of itself,
Whats on your mind? I alwyas ponder this question time to time. We often wonder about our problems and what puts us in these binds. I think of the same things, sometimes I wonder should i commit crimes?
Real life, real words, real truths, mean little to you. You hide behind your paranoa, You want the "best" for me yet Your support of my dreams means nothing to you. You ask me to subsitute what I want for myself

I have zero desire to do anything constructive;
The people of the Earth, were once married to it. In a Garden good and pure, they lived quite happily.
Think. Not about you
Death is like air abundant everywhere. And it lerks always coming around.
We survive in a world of consumption No compassion for the surrounding How can we agree that we even live
Life is a mystery full of surprises You'll never know what's going to happen so just live through it. Count your days count your blessings count your mistakes before your life
I don't have to apologizefor not being perfect

Look around and what do you see?

I listen to my mother
My father told me he was proud of me once,
Desperate measures call for desperate actions. That's all I knew. I sat crying in front of my sister, Hurting so badly I pleaded at her, Please just kill me. She looked at me sadly asking innocently.

Today I stand watching blank faces, Their sorrows hidden in between the spaces of their broken hearts. Shattered minds echo through these hallways, this supposed education, the proposed libation,
It takes pain to know that you're alive, That your heart is beating. That your skin is feeling. That your lungs are breathing. It takes passion to know that you have the drive,
Is it normal to hate someone we've never met Is it normal to talk about the way they look talk

Sometimes Amongst a world of chaos, loss, anonymity, and pain The thing you need the most is to be invisible To no longer try to fit into it all Into all the deceit, The roles of society
Nothing is a given, Nothing is for sure, Nothing guarantees, You’ll live another day That which makes you who you are, Is solely up to you
The skeletons of life unlead, Haunt me everyday Until Until I make this life I lead, Nothing else but mine
Life unlead is life a waste, Yours is your own, you set the pace Make your mark on the human race, Leave a mark, Make a difference, Live each day like your last The sun the flowers, the sky up high,

Life, So meaningless and rich, It withers like a dying flower And yields its beauty with, Yet richer than the richest golds And finer than the finest jewels,
Walking home, long day. November already? We vote, and give thanks. The leaves are brown. And the weather slips down. The cold giving me a slight chill.
