I'm the same as I was when I was six years old / and oh my god I feel so damn old, I don't really feel anything
14Kendrick Lamar
Section.80


When I lie on my back and look at the ceiling, it's so appealing to pray / I wonder if I'm just a villain dealing my morals away / some people look at my face, then tell me don't worry bout it / I give 'em back they deposit, no money, just total silence
15Leonard Cohen
Various Positions


Dance me to the children who are asking to be born / dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn

I skipped the part about love / it seemed so shallow, and low
