Thank God For Rats


Drop down to the bottom

Heavy on the mind

I explode into awestruck wonder

How to begin again

I know I may not be worthy

To enjoy this pleasure

But it is mine

So I can

I will beg to differ

What is worthiness anyways?

I know my heart is mangled

__on a plate with cheeses

Since the rats ate me alive

__I've been thinking all day

With just a brain now I walk

Without a burden on my chest

__fallowing me ev'rywhere

Not now


The burdens are all in my mind now

And since they're all

Just in my mind

I can unthink them

For a mind unlike a heart

Is controllable

I have the remote control

I have the power

To turn off it's thoughts

I have the power

To slip and fall off

I have the power

To gain reactivity

And change ev'rything

Now I can breathe
