now I know my ABC's
next time won't you sing with-
but all the beats i'm saying is coming out arrhythmic
light shines a rainbow
but how far could light reach down this rabbit hole
feet ain't so lucky
want to mark this file but i'm not David Duchovny
you know you want to sing it
but Tom Sawyer's pride drowned; couldn't bring it
and so we watch
we're taught play dead
there's too much words inside my bed
but when I swallow, you'll come instead
a rush of blood to the head
play it cold
how many more tears have to dry and mold?
do you need me to spread my mouth open?
there's good vibes but my hands attack
most used; worse equation:
1+1= destructive, invasion
but where's the magical adventure?
will I be a champion
or be stuck in a call center
I need a mentor
but the one in the mirror is too busy looking elsewhere
so now I know my ABC's
so next time come, oh won't you please
cause if you hollar you'll just shed
all of that nonsense in your head...
