buckle down. bury my fate. let's go in another direction. responsibility caught up with me too slow was the rate of affection. caught soft in a midnight thought cause i wasn't paying attention. the mistakes and stakes keeping me from doing the same. i can't say goodbye to my innocence and say hello to consequence. i can't go on living life like this. it doesn't make any sense. heart sinks. gut starts to go. can't think cause i've lost my perception. head swells. voice becomes dull. can't yell cause i've got no projection. locked tight in my mindsets' blight and i've got no way to protect it. the mistakes and the stakes keep me from doing the same. kick back and settle down. let it take. "go ahead and do what you want to do." what would they say on the day i hit the brakes? i'm sure they'd be singing a different tune. kick down the hourglass. let it break. i just did what i wanted to. run my fingers through the sand that it makes, pick it up then i'll throw it in your face. that's right.
