Every day I put on my silly little outfit and do my silly little tasks. I didn’t ask to be born. Get in loser we’re going shopping. I never had a penny to my name, so I changed my name. Fuck being good I’m a bad bitch. More love hours than can ever be repaid. A body without organs. I put the fun in dysfunctional!!! That’s hot. The crushing weight of existence burdens my mind every second. Your oldest fears are the worst ones. Leave the land alone. In a dream you saw a way to survive and you were full of joy. I love the whole world. My life flashed before my eyes and it was really boring.
