    Sometimes I write folk songs and then ask people to judge my lryics. Be honest, don't hold back, you know the drill.

    Limits To Simplicity

    A cease fire for words or just a bandage for your dignity
    Just push on for that world where nouns and verbs can stop an M-16
    One hundred definitions for the phrases you've been given
    It's no wonder that you're only finding confidence in plagiarism

    My passenger's seat is a safe haven for hypocrites
    Considering your impulses, you'll be another poltergeist
    Tapping on my window, leaving letters at my dead-bolted door
    Playing charades for no one up and down the eastern shore

    It's such a shame
    That what is ours is theirs to gain
    If we could pave the time-worn miles
    And steady needles on the dials
    We'd be the same

    1 AM and every street lamp buzzes frequencies
    This parking lot is empty making space for new analogies
    All bringing up excuses but they're all too true to use them
    You are to me as I am to them, they are to truth as I am to the rest
    We're apprehensive

    It's all in time
    When what is ours will be for life
    When we can fill the gaps with letters
    From the ones who write them better
    Not for the fame

    Fast asleep to every signal on Mass Avenue
    I'm running all the red lights with your hand gestures in my rear-view
    My only excuse is that it's all in black and white
    I am contrite as they are to life, are we to die if they have the right?
    It's all overbearing

    But what gets me down
    Is that they drove this to the ground
    Expending all the simple kicks
    And feeling not a word of this
    We're all fair game

    Haha! Silly me. I corrected it. Thanks a bunch.

    Thank you too Frontman C.

    I'm just happy that people are taking the time to read it.
