being's unbearable lightness
the urge to write despite this permanent likeness left behind
big blind sets of action
going all in with nothing to ration
rainy day savings all day
beware of the stickup kids roaming in the hallway
always looking out for an easy withdraw
benefits doubling as your downfall
sorta like the shadow of a smile
sinister side coinciding with the need to hide within the other side of time
lines in the sand can't determine where i choose to stand
therefore a step thirteen means leaving everything behind
at the cost of a beautiful mind
unwind but try not to unravel
head among the clouds
feet among gravel

formulate a picture of matter
plummeting earthbound
shattering whatever's in the path of its Pyhric victory
flight that's achieved at the risk that anybody made to believe
is offended and all contact is ended
no place to land without hands extended
done, crash land amongst no one
survive to thrive like blister in the sun
baby, it ain't hard to tell
dig this shell well equipped for the hell i catch
in the ongoing journey to complete this match
stuck in a rut
this unique cut doesn't seem to be compatible
or it's too adaptable
yet somehow barely valuable
some say the value is a gradual gain
payback for choosing to invest in pain

scoping out the vast expanse
makes a tiny dancer feel the lack of a need to advance
no need to be a solitary visionary
what's a pure spirit with nobody near it?
an island
which no man is unless all circumstances spiral fully out of control
but suppose two black holes collided
and merged together to form a single black hole?
everything hanging in the balance might vanish
panic from the beautifully fantastic damage
pictures are still on the wall
before i walk away it seems like they wanna see me crawl
everything hits at once, simultaneous
somewhat redundant
natural next step's becoming numb from it
seems like equilibrium comes from it
