gentle jesus and drugs
the observations will always disgust me but i cant
turn away or hide
i just document the squalor that bleeds inside every mind
the choices that people make
aren't unlike the choices i myself have made in vain
but the symptoms elevate
a fluid seeps into the crevices and folds across my brain

i cant turn away from it
i stay and wait for more ( i enjoy the torture )
forgive me
give me all the filth that i can stomach
give me tragedy and hate and pain

set it off one time
and excuse me for the mess i may have made in haste
and in new sharp light
i can see a meaning and a purpose that i somehow don't despise.

set it off
