i woke the other day
and saw my world has changed
the past is over, but tomorrow's wishful thinking
i can't hold onto what's been done
i can't grab onto what's to come
and i'm just wishing i could stop, but

life goes on, come of age
can't hold on, turn the page
time rolls on, wipe these eyes
yesterday laughs, tomorrow cries

memories are bittersweet
the good times we can't repeat
those days are gone and we can never get them back
now we must move ahead
despite our fear and dread
we're all just wishing we could stop, but

life goes on, come of age
can't hold on, turn the page
time rolls on, wipe these eyes
yesterday laughs, tomorrow cries

with all our joys and fears
wrapped in forgotten years
the past is laughing as today just slips away
time tears down what we've made
and sets another stage
and i'm just wishing we could stop

life goes on, come of age
can't hold on, turn the page
time rolls on, wipe these eyes
yesterday laughs, tomorrow cries

time rolls on

leftover crack - clear channel (fuck off!)

SCABIES AND METALHEADS
BORN IN THE GUTTER
AND CHAINED TO THE RADIATOR OF A SQUAT BASEMENT FOR 16 YEARS
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN
THE THUNDEROUS CACOPHONY
THE CRACK ROCK STEADY BEAT
AS THE SAME BITCHES THAT BROUGHT YOU THE TOWER TOPPLING MEDIOCRE GENERICA ON 9-11-01
AS THE SAME MOTHER FUCKERS THAT UNITED THE GAY RUDIES
ROCKED CRACK CITY
AND SAINTED THE COLUMBINE KIDS
WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT

FROM ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK OF THE FOOD STAMP LINE
AND STRAIGHT OUTTA MOTHERFUCKING REHAB
IT'S THE GOOD...
THE BAD...
AND THE LEFTOVER CRACK!

thinking back thinking back to the good days
I realized they were shit days
and I was just too hammered to notice
but a moment of sobriety sure sheds a lot of light upon the truth
once upon a time
I truly thought you were our friend
but it turns out you're a black hole
you consume 'til nothing's left
you project your insecurities on others
and it makes me fucking sick

all we did was give and give
and all you did was take
you told us that you cared about us
you’re a fucking fake
'cause in your eyes you're jesus christ
yeah I’m so sure

you drive me crazy
you drive me to drink
I hope you drive your car off a cliff
you self obsessed asshole
I was so much better off after you split
you drive me insane
you drive me out of my head
if it’s between living with you and death
I’m better off dead
I sincerely hope our paths never cross again

I just wanna get some rest
I'm oh so tired of bein' wired all the time
and oh yes I can interact
but there's nobody home behind these bloodshot eyes
and my brain is runnin' on empty
and my nights are full of stupidity
I'm a hamster runnin' in a ball
at least the rat in the maze has a goal

'cause I wanted to be like bill hicks or van gogh
drink absinthe shoot dope snort blow
'cause I thought art was discovered in the altered mind
but now I realize that clarity
entices the muses just as much as the LSD
I would use back in high school
now there's not as much time to kill
but much rhymes to kill
so wake the fuck up and pass the booze

I'm going back
of course I am
as if I ever had a choice
back to what I always knew I was
on the inside
back to what I really am
look at this pathetic place I made
with little bits of sticks and hair
and anything I found along the way
and tell yourself, you know?
you're not really what you know you are
you know?
of course you do
I think I may have even listened to you
I think I may have even listened to you
at the height of my demise

and oh my god, I missed you, it's been so long
and I am stronger than I have ever been in my decline
I am stronger than I have ever been in my decline
for now I know, now I know, now I know for certain
now I know for certain
oh, burn motherfucker!
carry the carcass and throw it on
pull up a chair and watch
the flies come roaring out
and will surround the entire world
and blacken out the sky and every last one of you
like a plague of locusts
like an exit
like an end
like an end
like an end
like the end

how much further do we plan to take it?
slash and burn 'til the planet lies vacant
and I've always heard that when it rains it pours
if we let the cops pull us over
next they'll bust down our doors

the prisons are loaded the quotas are met
we're starving in gutters and drowning in debt
the system has faltered, there's no help to call for
let's open the toolbox and build something better

god I hope we haven't buried ourselves too deep
beneath a mountain of abhorrent ideas and greed
and I really wish I had some hope for the future
but I'm sorry gotta say I don't

*right as we pass by a dairy queen*

my mom: "we should go to dairy queen"

me: "there's one right there" *points to it* "wanna u-turn?"

mom: "oh no, let's not turn around, we're already headed this way, let's go to the one in port hueneme"

me: *searches it on my phone and sees that DQ we passed is the only one in the area, tells my mom*

my mom: "oh, no, there's one over there"

*we drive all the way to port hueneme and, surprise surprise, there's no dairy queen in sight*

me, internally, the whole time: "fucking idiots fucking idiots fucking idiots I TOLD YOU SO"

some say it was a warning
some say it was a sign
I was standing right there
when it came down from the sky
the way it spoke to us
you felt it from inside
said it was up to us
up to us to decide

"you've become a virus
that's killing off its host
we've been watching you with all of our eyes
and what you seem to value most
so much potential
or so we used to say
your greed, self-importance, and your arrogance
you piss it all away
we heard her cry
we've come to intervene
you will change your ways and you will make amends
or we will wipe this place clean"

lyrics 

I posted this last pride month and I'm posting it again (important quote) 

music from jamaica, all the love that I found
pull over, there's a reason why my soul's unsound

it's you
it's that shit stuck under my shoe
it's that smell inside the van
it's my bed sheet covered with sand
sittin' through a shitty band
gettin' dog shit on my hand
gettin' hassled by the man
wakin' up to an alarm
sickin' needles in your arm
pickin' up trash on the freeway
feelin' depressed every day
leaving without making a sound
pickin' up my dog at the pound
livin' in a tweeker pad
gettin' yelled at by my dad
sayin' I'm happy when I'm not
findin' roaches in the pot

all these things I do
they're waiting for you

is cybre down because it's finally upgrading and getting polls? I hope so

I don't know how to live
but I'm sick of learning how to die
vampirism is for poseurs in junior high

"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels ... upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"
