Poem

1 October 2015

Adultery fucks a family up as much as poverty
Because the memories can’t run away from home
That’s a lot of hatred from a mother
Nothing I’d care to discuss right now

Because the memories can’t run away from home
Once a kid learns guilt he’s going to stumble
Nothing I’d care to discuss right now
Never grew any taller, just sadder and angrier

Once a kid learns guilt he’s going to stumble
I quit school to escape the staring eyes
Never grew any taller, just sadder and angrier
I know that nobody ever changed history, but I had to try

I quit school to escape the staring eyes
The sun, the silence, the nothingness
I know that nobody ever changed history, but I had to try
Part of what makes me interesting for science

The sun, the silence, the nothingness
It was like an acid eating into me
Part of what makes me interesting for science
You’re beautiful. What’s the emergency?

It was like an acid eating into me
No sexual act ever commenced, instead I trashed the room
You’re beautiful. What’s the emergency?
Everyone’s got their own version of the truth

No sexual act ever commenced, instead I trashed the room
Just want to see if property feels pain
Everyone’s got their own version of the truth
Maybe some day, but not today

Just want to see if property feels pain
It’s going to end in infinity, and if there is no infinity
Maybe some day, but not today
Can’t stop love from doing its damage

It’s going to end in infinity, and if there is no infinity
That’s a lot of hatred from a mother
Can’t stop love from doing its damage
Adultery fucks a family up as much as poverty
