this is ambition: as ugly as it gets. uncommon kids and their fight against an early death by common sense. this is motivation: free of contempt. our generation has come of age...and left us here with bitterness. so when you're feeling jagged and you think you've gone fucking mad: salt your wounds. feel the sting of the things you never had, the things you always wanted, and the things they said you would never be. focus on the pain and find the strength to make your own reality. please understand...you only live your life but once. so don't hold back and don't live it in a rut. for far too long we’ve heard “life’s not like that” from timid souls: longing and filled with regret. but why should we take advice from the boring-working-brain-dead? we’re forward thinking youth and we can use our own heads. self preservation!
