Remember back?
back back
when this, my head
sat squarely on my shoulders
before it rested so much
on yours?

Back before foggy visions were clear

My periphery
catches shadows
me how I was
me walking back
you how you are

this scent of depression
still lingers in my clothes
and with every inhale
deep breath
or sudden gasp
it reminds me I'm alone

This is me falling down that mountain
sand in my face
this is me stuck off a dark California mountain road
waiting for the slasher
to show me the shine of his cleaver

where's my dance?
where's my direction?

it's hobbling from a sprain
it's wayward from this twisted moral compass

it's for me to find
it's for me to forget
it's for me to shed
new cells
new coat
new heart
new life

I will not fade

I will shine bright

I am the beacon

I am the light

this twisted moral compass
Sir Rancid, you remind me of Terrence Burns - who hasn't graced the Org in years. You have that same carefree way with the English vernacular but with a somewhat more serious side.

Loved the scent of depression line.

I've actually felt like I lost my voice for about a year now. It's been burried under mudslide of life. I'm glad someone is still finding something in it.
