echo chamber
unknown

you live the days in micro dosed haze
 1
limiting drunken stupor to dusk
 2
and sleep to dawn,
 3
lackadaisical sunrise that it is,
 4
just another to catalogue alongside
 5
lost paintings and instruments no more
 6
 
 
you live the life of pawn
 7
just to elevate your heart rate
 8
and match the pace of the night
 9
where you stalk it's subtle prey
 10
closet to closet
 11
full of skeleton hell
 12
 
 
you live the euthanasia fantasy
 13
of glamor and emerald envy monologue
 14
about your unlucky pennies
 15
and cracks in the sidewalk,
 16
those swollen wives tales of childhood's scraped knees,
 17
scars now on your own being
 18
 
 
you live for relief from families tax on responsibility
 19
you could never pay in full
 20
when all your currency is only imagination,
 21
creations of heartbreaking beauty
 22
lost in your minds eye,
 23
staring into the center of the galaxy, year after year
 24
 
 
you live for the universe you hibernate in,
 25
waiting for the romantic harmonies
 26
of all the diamonds in the world to channel your
 27
dying wish into the animated reality
 28
that no one ever got to see
 29
because your walls were so high
 30
 
 
I could go on and on but the truth is you can't hear me over the music and you'd only disagree even if you saw the evidence because
 31
because
 32
because
 33
 
 
you live
 34
