tongue tied around my neck.
blood dripping from my lips.
i'm shaking at the thought of
something insignificant.
rain cloud above my head.
thunder inside my chest.
i need to ask you
something very serious.

can you draw me? i need to see how you feel.
can you use me? i need to be how you feel.
can you draw me? i need to see how you feel.
can you use me? i need to be how you feel.

my eyes explode. my life explodes.
my eyes explode. my life explodes.
regained all of my senses in a fucking second, it's overwhelming me, it's overwhelming me.
i have been numb for so many fucking mondays, it's overwhelming me, it's
overwhelming me.
i can recite your smile from one hundred blocks away...
can you say the same?

    General CommentThe effects of following a daily routine, continually, can be numbing. Thoroughly. It's all back to being human in a second when you meet that person or find that thing that really makes you feel alive. Ultimately, those people and things are just as insignificant as everything else, but does it matter in that moment? Not in the least. You and me becoming an us. There's a little hope inside of everyone, yearning for that moment, whether for a fairytale prince or the boy sitting next to you in 7th period physics.

    General CommentThe beginning of this song may be from Superbad, but it has a lot of meaning. Why can't friends say "I love you" to each other, because it's gay? Just bringing up a point, but Afkro nailed it I think.
