What began as a poem is now just a burden,
What began as forgetting is now just a prototype of ways to fight off sleep
Make mixtapes of other peoples problems
Cause they’ve built themselves some charade
What began as a song ended up as a death threat
So far confined into dead ends
and a quiver filled with bad intentions
So tell them for their own sake
The burden’s are mine,
Get the syringe.
It can break skin
Things have changed so little from the way I planned it
And an escape to my old best advantage

Let’s see if ink to page brings the same fear as life, love and medicine
it can’t break me.
Things have changed so little from the way I planned it
It’s all romantics
The math is coincidence.
