When my time comes, I want a legacy. An effigy to represent the people dead to me. Especially the revelry and the cataclysm. Before I had a vision I became an apparition. I had ambition but lost it chasing infamy. And faking sympathy disintegrated instantly. Differently, my dreams became twisted. The point was so cryptic, I felt like I'd missed it. Conflicted, I burned the suit and tie. So you and I'd escape suicide. I knew a guy who traded life for work. He died of thirst, and denied his worth. I search the fear and persevere. This verse is clear, the hearse is near. Me vs. the years is a losing battle. And getting noticed is hopeless like chewing gravel. A moving shadow, that's my story now. An allegory bound to a stormy cloud. A sorry clown inside of life's circus. Why word this subversive? I'll die with my curses. I prefer this, and I don't look back the past hurts. We'll die bastards.
Choking on our last words.
I'll probably die in a gutter without my mother or brother my heart will flutter, to my lover I'll mutter..
Is this what I'm meant for? To die on this thin floor? I just could've bee more, I've been dead since I've been born. x2
I died inside when I heard the first quote. Sliding slow from a dying throat. While he spoke, I wrote it down. It erodes the ground its so profound. So no sound goes unrecorded. Everything before that's unimportant. Unsupported by files and archives. One little statement defines all of our lives. A star dies, and it's light projects, and I suspect that life connects. It's complex, the last moment alive, but the opponent is time. Disown it and die. I wanna make a statement. So you debate, hate it or relate with my hatred. Waste it. Scream out, "Fuck today." When death comes, I won't know what to say.
