life is a fucking mess sometimes
a broken down merry-go-round
the sound is all busted
and the horses are all fake
your seat isn’t so comfortable
the ups and downs are all scripted
and the person ahead of you
is as stuck as the person behind…
I’m starting to wonder
if balance is really the key
or if it’s the pursuit of extremes
that somehow works better
for a person like me…
I heard that to get what you want
you’ve got to do what…
