We’re all ripeFor a mid-lifeCrisis pre-fortiesWe’re all bentOn our edgeIn the breakdown of our storiesI wanna say “We’re alright”I wanna say “We’re not in pieces”But I don’t know what followsTo complete the correct sequenceYou can count on my admittanceI can’t admit things into existenceThe way I destroy them by my silenceWhy else would I feel empty as I wait,Become too little, too lateIf I don’t dictate to stop the violence?I just mean I can’t make ultimatumsTry to leave no stone heart unturned, never fake ‘emExcept, it turns out, I set nothing in stoneMake no steps to ground meNothing leads me or keeps me at homeIs that natural for us when we turn grown?Naturally, I think I was born under toxic seasCause when I get intoxicated I think poison is the natural way to breatheI hit that checkpoint where I need a check-upOn this fast life cause somebody let upIt’s too soon for me to move in on a step upWhen over is me is an overboard rep that over time I set upCheckmate. I’m over it or I’m fed up.
I burned too many brain cells down to be worried about my brain cells now
Got bored in the game that this would make me betterPut memories in the glass so they could remember“She’s whiskey in a teacup”That Tom WaitsAnd tomorrow waits for those who never say neverOr if tonight you just try to forget herSuch dumbness equates to numbnessIs that why I only feel obligationsTo the calculated long run elationsAll my idols are calling it maturityAll my cycles are losing their securityAll of me just wants to get through and thoroughlyCause through and through I hardly lose uncertaintyThat all my feelings and actions happen purposelyI wish I was details and puzzle piecesThat knew my place built something greatWithout that over or underestimateOf myself. I wish I didn’t feel likeI’ve lost who I am entirely in the arrayOf everyone elseI guess I wanna be different; That cliché, make a differenceWhether or not I have something in common with the common existentOr else know my common existence mattered to the greater goodOr else find it’s less bad there’s a 20 year old difference betweenWhat I want and what I should.
I burned too many brain cells down to be worried bout a brain cell now.
