Living It

lyrics

this is how the story goes:
a man is torn apart
time’s catching up with him

and i’m living it

this is how the story ends:
a man caught up in myth
he gets a script for some happy pills
and he downs them with a fifth

he scribbles out all his final words
on a cold apartment floor
a vain goodbye to a wasted life

and i’m living it

to hurt the ones who love you
to hurt the ones who try
to love the sick and suffering
to open up your eyes

this is how it really goes:
a man gets out of bed
he shakes off grandiosity
to trudge the day ahead

accepts the flaws that he has to bear
accepts the waning years
accepts the pain of yesterday
and pushes through the fear

and every other hour or so
the pain comes creeping back
but it’s a dull modern pain

and i’m living it

and on and on and on

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
