Sometimes I have to wonder where I get some of this stuff. I found this the other day. Added some tidbits here and there for kicks (trying to keep it in the spirit of the song) and Wha-La!!! A pile O' crap...

I can't help but look back on things I've written when I was 16-ish, and laugh...

Banal Rape



You're walking the path
Again and again
You're looking for something
Again and again
Walk the same road
Again and again
Feel cold and alone
Again and again

Your banality diseases me
Infecting me and breaking me
Bloodying and raping me
You've built a world on sewage dreams
You're specious ideals are hollow things

You've been looking
Found nothing
Been seeking
Out something
It's there
And it's breathing
Your dream
It's still beating
Like a heart
In barbed-wire
Like a life
That's on fire
The screams
Are still ringing
And my ears
Are still bleeding
Your happiness
It's in reach
You look
But don't see
And all five
They dig in
Twist your world
Again and again

Exaltation of your fantasy
Created with your will to be
Juxtaposed with reality
And discerned by relativity
On all these things you disagree
Apotheosize your banality

In your consciousness that fetters
Arbitrary senses measured
And everything that you perceive
Appears to you so dismally

You've been looking
Found nothing
Been seeking
Out something
It's there
And it's breathing
Your dream
It's still beating
Like a heart
In barbed-wire
Like a life
That's on fire
The screams
Are still ringing
And my ears
Are still bleeding
Your happiness
It's in reach
You look
But don't see
And all five
They dig in
Twist your world
Again and again

I can't cling to fallacious reason
Nor stand silent in the world
I can't stand the drilling of the cement
Nor the shattering of the sky
The screaming of machinery
Everything so cut and dry
Mathematically explained
With biased logic that we swallow
Because we fear to question
Or look
Or see
Or listen

So how was everything?
Same shit, different day
Get up

Boss
