theres nothing left here for you to take from me. Dignity was non existant and washed up. Washed out and washed over. Face up to the music without a melody and just pretend there is one. Dance. Laugh. Lie with me. Everybody’s got a story that can break the heart. Ive got two that will make your bones shatter. I want to say it doesnt matter and I can look past it. That Im grown now and what you said when I was a child has long since been blanked from my mind. But I cant, and I wont. Slice me open and chop up my insides. Slow cook me like amphibious bird that only gets cooked once a year. You only get to do it once a year, better watch the torture and prolong it right? The bells toll and the minutes past. And each day I get closer to my white noise future. Hear nothing, see nothing, feel nothing, that is the ultimate goal. And ultimately what we all achieve in passing. I will never push the button again. That big red button. Nintendo says start. Time says STOP. Stop? Comma, end of line. Full stop. Like a train. Noisy and big and puffy when it gets going, but eventually? Full stop.
