some people got way too much confidence some people got way too much charm when they smile their teeth shine like blood diamonds when they laugh and tell jokes, people applaud but i’m just a loner adrift in the commerce wading in a sea of melancholy dreams i’ve taken the plunge unplugged the life support gave up my wrist watch, nothings easy in an exponential way i get more expert every day that i’m alive, that i’m alive when all i gotta do is keep it chambered up inside and shut my mouth for a little while and learn to smile, learn to smile i feel like an astronaut confused on a subway train i’m at my best in line at the plasma bank exchanging blood---inhaling the oxygen requiring a signature do you know how I am? i’m just a recluse addicted 2 green Tea late night guitar watching soundless TV broadcasting signal---the signal a smoke screen the smoke screen my lifeboat is it your lifeboat too? in an exponential way i get more expert every day that i’m alive, that i’m alive when all i gotta do is keep it chambered up inside and shut my mouth for a little while and learn to smile, learn to smile do do do do do do

i dont know how to talk anymore i keep my doors shut i keep my mouth shut i’ need to be hide behind something feel the blue lights glow and flicker across the screen be brave talk a walk downtown check reflection mirrored window find out whats for sale avoid all eye contact with persons unknown fill my lungs with muddy waters coughing up borrowed refrains i’m afraid of conversation i’ll text you and try to explain I’m afraid to know you I’m afraid you might want to know me too! access random memory bank overflow we’re like checked luggage we’re like lost baggage or abandoned shopping carts dream the distance between us humans disappear dream the distance between us humans disappear fill my lungs with muddy waters coughing up borrowed refrains i’m afraid of conversation i’ll text you and try to explain I’m afraid to know you I’m afraid you might want to know me too!
