sometimes I feel
these threadbare wheels
won't stop their reel?
like i'm going 85
stuck on the passenger side
with a severed break line?
like suddenly it's been revealed
that a gigantic bar of steel
is in the place of the steering wheel
and i can't gain control no matter how hard i try?
well, it seems about time to crash to a halt
and maybe this will end up being my fault
but i'm ok with that cause
now is as good a time as any to
burn it up
and start over.
Then maybe i'll get it right next time.
really listen instead of chase after
the carrot i idealize
in my beat-down-burned-up-threadbare
