Too attracted to my habits it seems always stacking up the matches while the battery drains all that cannabis and acid can’t be good for the brain got a scholarship to class and didn't pass when it came passed due passenger train plateaus and impasses are a part of the game we can pray for the martyrs and go hard in their names but they still got taken away so maintain so plain Cobain no-names Northwest low-lifes no fame no gain Coltrane with a swoll vein blow brains cold rain with the cord cut so clean Monet gold paint no frame soul train all off the tracks what a bold shame fuck that man we’re getting it in and we sure wont stop ‘till the lesson is lived it goes…

I might be lost in assumptions again in the fog of a blunt and a hash oil pen another sawed-off summer getting blasted to bits with a lock jaw under utter influences it goes running numbers hundreds and fifths eighths and quarters just to subsist off the border under the fence getting high like mortars acid blotter I’m blessed drinking car wash water role model to kids when the mottos “go harder” than the harder it gets on a door stop lost all in a bottle of gin Clark Kent but can’t remember who the fuck that he is be a lost cause anyway getting it in got a band in the shed and we’re blessing this shit plus the con-jobs on when the column is penned and we sure don’t quit till we see it in ink its like

Its never gonna stop until you cut the strings fade away, its never gonna stop until you cut the strings and fade….
