To You, About MeLinked here is a track from a spoken word project. These are created live, so that I can feel beat and so that the musicians can match my attitude. It is truly an artistic expression that I'm proud to share with my followers and any randoms who run across it tonight. Special thanks to the band SOUTHERN SOLSTICE in Cleveland for providing me with this opportunity. Find them at http://www.southernsolsticeband.com/ if you dig their sound.
Please leave your comments here on dA, and not on Soundcloud. Thanks for your time!
TO YOU, ABOUT ME:
HOW AM I NOT MYSELF?you think you're in control?
tell your heart to stop beating
hold your breath and die
so now we're on a roll
we know that life is fleeting
but it wills us not to die
and what about the witness
just the one inside your mind
who watches how you think
it takes agility and fitness
training your thoughts to find
the things you want to think
i have three times before today
wanted to be over and gone, asleep
and not have to wake up
but today, there is a new way
to love, profoundly, lions and sheep
are you afraid to look up?
Mistakes to MakeWe are all connected by a mental disconnect.
In a sordid belief that we could end up incorrect.
But I am living proof that the life here is a lie.
And I am dying to tell you that you'll never know why.
Seven years is a long time to change your mind,
To figure out a place for you within all of mankind.
Everybody's doing it but they all think they're the one.
If you don't bet against the house, you won't be outdone.
Imperfections get perfected if you give them the time,
Walking, thinking, breathing; but first crawling out of slime.
Let's evolve the conversation so the door does not revolve.
We cannot fix the problems that we don't want to be solved.
HOW TO PROPERLY READ A BIBLEHOW TO PROPERLY READ A BIBLE:
The word GOD means the energy of the universe. This is energy is most likely a closed circuit, meaning all energy is recycled, including the energy behind your neurons firing creating your thoughts. In this sense, you and all things are the same energy as god. Hence, god - the recycled energy of the universe - is everywhere, in all things, watching us, participating through us, as us, as everything.
The word JESUS means THE HIGHER SELF. In adult brains capable of abstract thought, there is a higher self, seperate from the ego. As Jesus speaks, he is your higher self, in tune with the energy of the universe, who he refers to as his father. "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do." This is how Jesus responds to being murdered. Those words come from a place of love, of acceptance, of great inner-strength. That peace is already a possibility inside of you, waiting for you to accept it into your heart, and begin to live it. Jesus shows us how to t
That Can't Feel GoodThey all keep saying that everything's fine,
But try telling that to my speeding mind.
It don't slow down and it stays so loud.
Paranoia can destroy you but so will doubt.
I can see that they're all smiling right now,
But I can't do it and I won't ask them how.
Is this as good as feeling good can be for me?
With life feeling cheap and pain for free?
Tell me that you love me,
I'll tell you that you lie.
Scream it out, you need me,
And I'll still ask you why.
Truth Like KnivesYou know, it's really hard to be a person.
All I know is that I want to feel good,
And I know for sure that the more I think about it,
The less good I feel.
I smoke weed every single day.
And I justify it this way:
I like who I am better when I'm high.
I like the way that person, this person;
I like the way I think when I'm stoned.
It makes that love, acceptance shit so real.
I can feel okay about the fact
That I don't know
To be with someone.
I can acknowledge that my unrequited loves
Are always distractions
And self-inflicted punishments
That I really, really
Don't have to do.
But then I sober up,
And I can't breathe,
And everything feels tight.
Anxiety, panic attacks,
But only when I'm alone
Or with too many people.
I don't do that much
But it's like,
People are how I regulate my emotions.
I need them, like NEED them,
Even just to sit in the same room and
Not say anything,
But just to
I really hate being alone
because I can't thin
