Now it's time to start posting for fun. Let us start with posting our favorite song lyrics.





I heard these lyrics today.
I exist I exist I exist by flatsound


baby please, it's the way you speak
forming words so easily
and i think of the way you think
it keeps me from falling asleep
in that grave i call a bed
until you called me up and said

"i haven't stopped crying
my father's been drinking
i need a place to stay
i don't want to be here
he's saying the words that
he promised he would never say

that liquid he consumes
makes him speak the truth"

and i said no, its not that at all
its that bottles of lies for a troubled heart
its standing on the edge of a mountain top
screaming anything he wants
like, "look at me, because i exist"

i remember the way you shook
its a shame that we're not soul mates
because if i didn't know better
i'd say this feels pretty good
how could i be scared?
when i stretch and feel that you're there
so shut your mouth
because these words will speak themselves
i can feel them in these blankets
and they're surrounding your figure
embraced in the quilts
and i cant help but think
you're my missing puzzle piece

i wake up in the hallway, i'm looking for sunlight
with rays that will cure me of the pain that keeps my lungs tight
ignoring the voices and feelings that tell me
to get out of this house
i cant make them stop
i'm just like my mom

and you said no, these demons will fall
you're so precious to us all
and i said i cant do this alone
i still need you to hold
so don't let go, because i'm afraid"

Don't come close
I don't want you to see my face, my face
You go away; I work so hard
I don't have time to start all over
I'd like to be-
Leave you without feeling bad
And leave you with the knowledge that
Most, most people would release you
Most, most people don't change; they only get old
So, if I let you back in close
Will you hurt me?
In all your life
You'll never live down what you can't forget, so forget it
Flick it away then our time flies
Bringing disease to the surface
Ouch I must be-sharper than your average man
Tell me honey what's the plan?
Most, most people would release you
Most, most people don't change; they only get old
So, if I let you back in close
Will you hurt me?
Don't come close, she said
I'd never stoop so low

I've never told a lie
And that makes me a liar
I've never made a bet
But we gamble with desire
I've never lit a match
With intent to start a fire
But recently the flames are getting out of control

Call me a name, kill me with words
Forget about me, it's what I deserve
I was your chance to get out of this town
But I ditched the car and left you to

Wait outside, I hope the air will serve to remind you
That my heart is as cold
As the clouds of your breath
And my words are as timed
As the beating in my chest

Isn't it a pity
Isn't it a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain?
How we take each other's love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn't it a pity?
Some things take so long
And how do I explain?
But not too many people
Can see we're all the same
And because of all their tears
Their eyes can't hope to see
The beauty that surrounds them
Oh isn't it a pity?
Isn't it a pity
Isn't it a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain?
How we take each other's love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn't it a pity?
Forgetting to give back
Isn't it a pity?
Forgetting to give back
Isn't it a pity?
What a pity

I feel like a leech to everyone around me
unsure and false promises I make.
I invade your existence with my dependence
and leave you guilt tripped until you take
care of me, for If not I will surely die.
I don’t feed or clean myself and I am always high,
putting pipe dreams before the necessities in life.
Without your help I have no hope to survive.
Now I know that sounds pathetic,
that’s because that’s what I am.
So open about my flaws
but it’s all part of my plan.
For If I can recognize my flaws
you’ll assume I’m trying to change,
but I am lazy and disheartened
and I know I will remain the same.
Taking all you can give me trying to live in excess.
You know you’ll make my life much easier, I’ll make your life a mess.
Squirm away stupid leech boy go and die now in the drain,
you speak only of your sadness but are yet to feel true pain.

As I get older I also worsen.
I used to be a better person.
Growing into a constant burden.
Introducing man child.

I am scared I’ll lose my job because I always go in stoned,
If I do will you feed me, take me in and hear me moan.
If you don’t I’m on your conscience and will surely die alone.
Invite me in to regret it as I take over your home.
Oh so useless and demanding no I will not help out with chores.
I’ll bring no money or conversation. Unmotivated and bored.
Staring blankly into space absorbing all you have worked for,
I will disappoint those who think I can do more.
I warn you now to avoid me.
I may not bite the hand that feeds,
but I will wrap my lips around it
and I will suck off all the meat.
You’ll be left feeling used once you find out I’m a leech,
I’ll take all you can give and then I will up and leave.
No shame or dignity left in me as I scout out brand new friends
to invade with my dependence and let it start again.

Hope of Morning - Icon for Hire

My mind's a kaleidoscope, it thinks too fast
Blurs all the colors 'til I can't see past
The last mistake, the choice I made
Staring in the mirror with myself to blame
Sometimes I'm afraid of the thoughts inside
Nowhere to hide inside my mind
I'm scared that you'll compare and I'll look a lifetime past repair
I second guess myself to death, I re-solicit every step
What if my words are meaningless? What if my heart's misleading this?
I try to capture every moment as it comes to me
Bottle up the memories and let them keep me company
When the hope of morning starts to fade in me
I don't dare let darkness have its way with me
And the hope of morning makes me worth the fight
I will not be giving in tonight
When I'm old and grey, or thirty, or whatever happens first,
I'll need you to reassure me I didn't waste a verse
Or worse, what if my life's work is reduced to just myself
Like never let you get a word in, while I dissect my mental health
Or lack thereof, whatever, there's too many things to track
I really can't remember if I'm insane or insomniac
Now days, all the kids want crazy, wanna diagnose themselves
Trade up made up epidemics, pass around prescription pills
But my disorder can't be cured by a bottle, blade, or dose
Self-disgust and selfishness tend to hold me awfully close
But I don't wanna let you see that, I don't want my friends to know
Self-disgust and selfishness take me everywhere I go
When the hope of morning starts to fade in me
I don't dare let darkness have its way with me
And the hope of morning makes me worth the fight
I will not be giving in tonight
Try as I might to keep it together
Why is recovery taking forever
Fool the whole world, just until I get better
I'm terrified I'll be faking forever
On and on I wonder what went wrong inside my head
I don't have to have the answers, but tonight I wish I did
All the pain I can't explain away won't fade
All the the secrets silenced by the shame
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
When the hope of morning starts to fade in me
I don't dare let darkness have its way with me
And the hope of morning makes me worth the fight
I will not be giving in tonight
