Slow Down


might slow down for a bit
i'm sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

i'm bored
and horny and i think i need a smoke
but i'm broke
hearing the sound of a g-chord
life is a joke so

might slow down for a bit
sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

guess and check to roll with the punches
arrogant in our morbid hunches
if i can last for one more season
i'll have a reason to keep believing

might slow down a bit
sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
