A Thousand Million Words

Updated on July 8, 2012

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.

      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!

      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! =:)
