oh, Mechanic


sometimes my own art makes me cringe

have you ever changed so much that you realized you haven't changed?

about a year ago i had this idea of who i was

or who i wanted to be

fresh off the devil's lettuce,

but how can it be?

one transcendent experience and i turn it around and complain i can't sin anymore

as if anything else matters

my heart is much like an old car;

every time i try to fix something, i notice two more things that need fixing

when i shouldn't have gone poking around to begin with

oh, Mechanic, please give me release
