"Writing, I think, is not apart from living. Writing is a kind of double living. The writer experiences everything twice. Once in reality and once in the mirror which waits always before or behind."


chorus: who, man?
you talking to me?
i don't understand
who you are
who we are
who, man?
we're human

human is all that we are
little specks of sand beneath the stars
working our a**'s off for tomor
o, it's a burden being
who man?

Chorus

tell me who i am
i don't think we're so different
we're both stranded
on this vast planet
waiting for a tangent
to distract us from the question...

Chorus

i'm asking you to light the candles
i'm asking you to fight the dark
i'm asking you to grab life by the handle
i'm asking you to help me make my mark
i'm asking you to find a spark
to ignite the answer...

Chorus

me me i'm human
me me i'm starting the engine
i'm taking off flying high
taping my mouth
forget to say goodbye
to this lie
this false mistake
this time
this heartbreak
a lack of humanity
the end of eternity
human.

This is really good. It’s easy to relate to, and interesting to read. Keep writing, because this is really good. You should check out some of my stuff. I think you would like it.
