Hungry

if only there was more time
for tomorrow today
and every secret left behind
could find it's proper place

then we could stop running
perhaps even provide
if we just didn't care again
our family could survive

it sucks that we're so selfish
always chasing happiness
but why am i so empty
and you, constantly depressed

Just fit into their system
commit to all their lies
reality of walking dead
society of flies.

Takes money to eat.

Ain't it the truth, baby.
Did you get the mp3's I sent you?

I've been without power for eight days...I just got water a few days ago but we have to boil it...with what? No power. Wilma sucks.

I thought I was alone with these feeling. Do you think this is true of most people? Maybe if we were all honest about this we would be happy.

Your song/poem is awesome. It hits home.
