In The Company of Strangers

In The Company of Strangers

And here I am again
I’m in the company of strangers
It’s a cold winter wind that sings a song
You say your love is lost
I’m not the kind that lingers on
So farewell to your heart
Cuz when the love is gone, it’s gone


As backwards as I think, I am running. I am falling from this world, upwards, downwards, I can’t tell. All I know is that I feel like gravity is no longer holding me down, it either let me go, or disappeared I cannot tell which.

I once knew the difference between the side of my brain that thinks mathematically, and logically, and the side that only thinks in prose, and art. I don’t know the outcome, I don’t know anything.

Sometimes I feel like I can't even sing
I'm very scared for this world
I'm very scared for me
Eviscerate your memory
Here's a scene
You're in the back seat laying down
The windows wrap around
To sound of the travel and the engine
All you hear is time stand still in travel
and feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn't end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen
And they're there for you
For you alone you are the everything



I do know that not much makes sense anymore and that I really don’t care if it does again, I’m happier in my own little world. This dark mood was brought on by the kid with the chemicals, the ugly news on the radio of parents neglecting there children, don’t they know there lucky to have them? Why would you make them sleep on a mattress the dog pisses on? This is a horrible world when you open your eyes, and who is there to make it right? Where is the voice of our generation that is inspires us to do we must? Where is the hero that’s going to shake the foundation and be made to suffer for his arrogance? I’m not naïve enough to think that I don’t need a hero. I do, this world does, and it makes me sick to my stomach, and hurt hard in my heart. I will close my eyes once again, and turn my back on this ugliness. What can I do? I am no hero.

don't you write it down
remember this in your head
don't take a picture
remember this in your heart
don't leave a message
talk to me face to face


I keep thinking about my dream girl, and long for her in my sleep, I see her hair, and a tear streaming down her cheek. I offer her no comfort for her happiness. She is mine, she is there, and she knows me inside an out. She tells me the same pretty lies that I tell myself. Dream girls are a beautiful thing. Mine has ponytails. I want to run to her, I want to be in her bed watching snow fall and let time stop in her room. The whole world can pass by and forget we exist.

All I can say is that I wish I could give you a hug to let you know that you are not alone and to hold you down to this earth.

I think there are just times you have to let go and see where the breeze takes you.
