Does it diminish your
Super-capacity to love?
Walk like a matador
Don't be chicken-shit
And turn breezes into rivulets
Flamenco-sweep the air
And weave the sun
And stamp your feet for everyone
Does it exhibit your
Natural tendency to hate?
And I'm not sorry
It's human nature
Peel off the napkin
O my enemy.
Do I terrify?
You might need somethin' to hold on to
When all the answers they don't amount to much
Somebody that you can just talk to
And a little of that human touch
The east and the west are mine, the north and the south are mine. All seems beautiful to me.
— Walt Whitman
We thought that we had the answers
It was the questions we had wrong
I hear the children crying and I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying, take me home
Enneagram 6w5 sp/sx
So take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Well I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you
But I don't remember
Take, take me home.
Where the doves are moaning all day long
Where the stairs are leading dusk 'till dawn
Where the windows are breathing in the light
Where the rooms are a collection of our lives
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place that I call my home
the formless thing which gives things form!

My life is a house
You crawl through the window
Slip across the floor and into the reception room
You enter the place of endless persuasion
Like a knock on the door when there's ten or more things to do
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me enter
Then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt
I hurt myself today,
to see if I'd still feel.
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real.....
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
Terrible things happen to good people every day.
Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
I am one of the terrible things..
We've thrown in the towel too many times
Out for the count and when we're down
