coming to terms in winter and writing-i'm immature-only 19.

Whatever caused you to
Scream this way?
I thought I could do everything
too soothe what you have
to say, "there's not much
glory" those things, these days,

but I learned that I can't stop
the screaming. "why did you
Say that" you scream, "Why did
You?" and I'm asleep and not listening.
What have we be dreaming?

What do you want me to do?
You never allowed me to wake up and now
You know that you have someone
wanting you. What are you going to do-
are you going to let me fly out of this
common noise-this common place where
you are never heard

and i hear you all the time?
I said we were together this time and
you just wanted to separate yourself from the world.
You are just selfish, thinking censorship is
what these days are about but you gotta some
time just fucking let it all out.

You fear they'll try to silence you.
Put you away somewhere, but that can't if i
protect you. Get a long
with me. don't you remember
the story? no, you only see
the bad part, the you're part, the not my
i'll send you away, earn us privacy,

earn us faith. you will when you stop fighting,
finally find a hideaway, stop destroying
me because i am your physicality. I am
you're fatality so we must move soon!
ambition swoons....

You're trying so hard to say the things
that i'm trying to tell you.
Feeling that I am not, you are overwhelmed.
Too consumed in the human emotion that I
know so much it's logic as well.
I could tell you what to do if
stopping the screaming was in parts of you.

The focus was success, a way out of here and yet
fate recognizes you. Now i'm the storyteller
too soon. Now i'm seen in the world, leaving
all the time a facade that i don't know what's going on

when i'm covering up for you. You feel all.
I mean, what am I going to do?
Let you go? Let it all? I need censoring when
I need you and lately I just want to be,
for once, a part of this world.

Well...the winter is up and out.
Maybe I won't feel so alone. People
always are lonely.
You couldn't believe what I just said.
I said hello. I said I'm dead but you didn't
want to come alive just yet.

I knew it was time for you to make some friends.
Some might even need you. I'll be good
with words, I swear. I'll protect you this
Time again. There is no leaving,
you see, there is nothing.
That's just between you and me.
