May 25th,
I dream about space because it's what makes me feel like a kid again. I'm starting to realize that I can only be happy as a kid. A kid who's just ignores all aspects of life, who lives solely in their own world. One where they are all that matters and where the world truly revolves around them. A state of ignorant bliss, but then I also remember that as a kid I romanticized sadness and angst and longed for the days when I could be a lonely teenager writing songs in some shitty garage. oh well, as the famous Bart Simpson once said "You're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't."


I took a sharpie and a white washed wall
I scribbled my dream from last night
But all I saw was your face and
A mistake I made a year ago
Dreaming of spaceships flying away
Wanting you to go but letting you stay
Five days till I’m gone from this hell
And then I’ll be in a new place

Are you kidding me right now
I’ve been ready to go for the past five hours
You really need to calm down
You’re crashing just like the twin tower

Maybe if I stand alone
Everything will just stay the same
Maybe if I stand alone
Everything will just stay the same
