Playlist

September 20th, 2021

My words are lost in thoughts
I’m trying to decrypt
They’re jumbled up in code
And I can’t read this script
Twenty-four hours of nameless music
I’ve left it on repeat
To find the message underneath
Am I being indiscreet
The melody is made of letters
In a language I want to know
You can play to the beat of my heart
I’ll be a metronome
Though I am not a muse
I don’t smile like Lana Del Rey
But I can lose myself in the beat
At the moment you press play
I guess my words will never be configured
And maybe this is cliche
But I will listen to the lyrics
Of feelings that I can’t convey

Spiders

May 10th, 2010

I know the truth but I fall false
I’m tangled up in a web of illusion
And in my heart I fear I’ve lied
I’m hoping for a conclusion
I pray to be right
But know that I’m wrong
My fingers have been crossed
And I’ve known all along
These spiders know the truth
And it slips through the cracks
And I fall to the floor
With the truth that it lacks
All these tears full of lies
And this heart about to burst
I was thinking of myself
When I should’ve put you first
And the rain’s falling slowly
And I think they think I’m crazy
But I think I’m forgetting
Because this is all getting hazy
And when I wake up I’m gone
In an unfamiliar place
And the lies are all around
Written right across my face
And they all left me here
Because the rain left me showing
The truth is uncovered
And the spiders kept going
They opened my wounds
And left me to die
In a sticky little web
I built from this lie
