Favorite Quote:
"And your very flesh, shall be a great poem"
"Simplicity is the beauty of our expression."


Is it not us, that we plant living flowers
In the ground blanketing the passed?
Sorry, the taste of drinking apologies
Is bitter and watered down.
We broke a tooth or two today,
Then self-consciously pursed our lips.
We untied the boat from the dock tonight,
To just wade into the seas and drown.

We are not afraid of fear.
Because fear is only afraid of the fearless.
Cowardice is free.
Pluck it off the trees.
We are in love with grass.
Because grass is one thing below us.
Our feet flatten things.
Leave happy, empty.
We are empty.

So stand up.
Let all of our weights drop
Onto stricken roof tops.
As we shut our eyes.
Shut our perfect eyes,
From this.

We are empty.
We are empty.
We are empty.
So full is empty.

We are not afraid of fear.
Because fear is only afraid of the fearless.
Cowardice is free.
Pluck it off the trees.
We are in love with grass.
Because grass is the one thing below us.
Our feet flatten things.
Leave happy, empty.

We are empty.
We are empty.
So full is empty.
We should wade to the seas and drown.
