Track Name: Buddhist Blues
I've been told to reach enlightenment you have to let yourself go, without a distinct detachment you can never truly know what it means to have peace, the insignificance of your feats, and how small we truly are.

But Gautama Buddha said, "You cannot love." I have read, but without love, what the fuck have we got? A being without love is something that I'm sure I'm fucking not!

Everything I do, it's all for you!
Humanity my life I'm sure that it's all for you!

If I can't love my fellow man, than what's the fucking point?
Track Name: I'll write songs, you'll use Twitter
You make it all seem okay. No matter what I might say. You said that the problems were all in my head. But to me, they were in the words that I said. Or didn't.

I just get caught up in my self consciousness. My thoughts gather and disperse like this! But you don't mind that it is all inside of my mind.

So I've began to think that I may not be on the brink of insanity. Because like very few it doesn't matter to you what I can't do.

You believe in me! and that is exactly what I need! Especially right now, I'm doing my best not to have a fucking cow.
Track Name: On Sleep and Sleeves, Part I
So lately I haven't been sleeping. And I know what's been keeping me awake. I don't get much normally, but the other day I caught myself napping. That's weird. What with the first world problems I have, I don't have time for a nap. "Dreams are for those who are sleeping" I hope not to be the one who is keeping you awake.
