A Thousand Million Words


A thousand million things

swim around in my head

what they mean, what it means

I don't know.

But every other morning they

start swimming again

and these thoughts I have

won't leave me alone.

Do I have it?

Do I have it?

Trying to write it all down...

Do I have it?

Can I grab it?

If not, then just leave me alone.

I write the words down

to maybe make some sense of it

but if there is any I just don't know

Maybe some day there will be

some meaning in this.

But I don't know don't know

I just don't know.

Newspapers and magazines put out

what is their perspectives on sh*t

And most of the time it's just

depressing as hell.

Thousands and millions of words

to help us get some bigger picture

on this - our lives.

If it's useful I still don't know.

Do I have it?

Do they have it?

We're all trying to write something down...

Do I have it?

Can I grab it?

I don't, they don't


So every other morning I take a try again

and tell myself it's just playing with friends.

But if I have anything to say

I tell you it's just pretend.

Cause I don't know

they don't know

we don't know.

Wow bud, if you don't have music for this yet I will be happy to try. This needs to be sung with great guitar and driving bass. Very very nice! =:)

No music. It would be cool if you came up with something though! Long time no read Mr. Winsome. I've been busy. Employed again with a great job and decent pay. Things are going in the right direction. I hope all is well with you and yours. Thanks for the comment!
