TEENAGE BLOOD RUNT dude, dude....I, like, can't feel my face can't get rid of it, can't deal with it won't live without it, can't live with it total non-existence, total deprivation all-pervasive subtle wretchedness big uncertainty, bigger loneliness no understanding, no companionship no easy answers, no free pass freezing outsider, cozy insider from the nothingness comes the knowledge big selfishness, big enlightenment feel the cool boredom, do the nothingness feel the cool boredom, do the emptiness so don't pat yourself on the back just yet or beat yourself up with regret you look good, but your shit stinks and you're not bad, but you're not great either there is no benevolent forest god that's either cruel or fair, that's callous or cares you're not alone but you're on your own is it a cruel joke? a cosmic hoax? a ten dimensional ecstasy, it just depends on how you see it a tree's advice is that is has none are you a teenage or a setting sun?
