An ode to destruction and the abandoning of the wish of ever fitting in.


Alternative reality
My world collides with yours
A cloudless sky
But it rains and pours

A parallel dimension
Desires that I lack
A race I try to win
But I keep on losing track

Please make it stop
I've had enough

I try to play by rules
I'm not sure exist
I wonder where it was
The conjunction that I missed

Handcuffs I put on myself
To which I have no key
I have this urge to find appeal
In things that don't appeal to me

And the rest is silence.
