in the darkness of a dorm room
somewhere in this suffocated mid-west
but if this is real then I was mistaken
and if there is truth then why can't we find it?
but beauty comes to those who have been waiting for something
that is bigger than themselves
but this is the sound of the hopeless kids
as they scream from the basements of the houses of their parents
and this is the sound of the hopeless ones
as they stare down at their books
and realize that they’ve been lied to
but if this is real then I was mistaken
and if the vision’s gone then I was not aware
consistency like that which I have craved
is that people change so unexpectedly
