"we all carry these things inside that no one else can see. they hold us down like anchors and they drown us out at sea."
"i'm trying to figure out which parts of my personality are mine and which ones I created to please you"

It made me shiver.
I about made up my mind to pray,
See if I couldn’t try to quit,
Quit being the kind of a boy I was and be better.

I sat there thinking
And got to thinking about our trip down the river.
I see Jim before me all the time.
I was the best friend old Jim ever had in the world,
The only one he [had].

I had done wrong.
I was to blame, I was stuck.
And I gave up trying.

It made me feel so mean,
I were’nt man enough,
Hadn’t the spunk of a rabbit.
I was a-trembling.
I’d got to decide, forever, betwixt two things.

I says to myself,
“All right, then, I’ll GO to hell!
I’m low down.
My mind’s made up.
I’m agoing to steal him.”
