it's mostly about where we are headed. it seems like a lot of information is lost on my generation, atleast that's how i've always felt ever since highschool. It's like nobody acts responsible because we're not treated like we should be responsible, and how can we because everything is so fucked up already... the only jobs most people my age can land are shit ass mcdonalds-esque jobs, and this is in the big cities. It's like our future seems so fucked or something, that most of them just prefer to stay dumbed down and stupid. and of course, no matter how smart you are, everyone just expects you to be this dipshit youngster that doesn't know anything. No matter how much you prove yourself worthy.

As Soon As You Try You Lose

words build up behind swelling eyes
and the tears mark the drapery of passing ties
they will dry up soon under a silkroad sun
and the world will go back to it's vicious run

in all the chills of craving more
the people never listen to forgotten lore
and sun is shone into the night
but the moon is blocked by smog and light

compared to stables, arches bare
the forgotten future we all will share
and climb the willow as she sleeps
and ask it's branches why she weeps

the dunes in deserts will burn barefeet
and cook the toes like tastless meat
below the shadows long and strong
dig yourself below until the days are gone

  Yeah, i can relate... when we're young people think we're stupid but as we get older they find out we aren't so dumb afterall. I know about the fast food jobs too, I've worked at McDonalds and Wendys.
You're still growing up so give it time... I'm 30, lets see how you feel at my age.
