Wind

It doesn't matter.
A tree will always stand up,
Like man, against wind.

Mirrors

I can point blame in any direction
Say it's this person or that thing
That causes me so much heartache
Causes me to fail so outstandingly.
But in reality
When all the pride washes off
And I can really focus, see clear
I find myself encased by a mirror
Seeing only what I want to.

Rage

Today I have discovered the cure
For any and all disease
The world is at my feet
I does with it what I please

Today I understood 
Without really having to think
And in that precious moment
My shallow heart sank.

I learned a few new things today
I'll repeat them for you now
The element of all our suffering 
Is our insatiable alimentary canal. 

I graduated today,
All the world is bliss,
And the only reason I came here
Was for lusts carnal kiss

Today I saved a life 
She thanked me through and through
She thanked me while I lay her down
And made her some hot stew.

Today I wrote a song
Published it, and sang
Today I am a millionaire 
This evening I will hang

Now as the sun sets on this day
And my mind, she settles down 
I begin to think of all the things I've done
And I remove my shiny crown.

Today I was all these things
If only on this stage
And the only constant ringing thing
Is my everlasting rage.
