I got a house of my own
it ain't much but it's all mine
and you can find it outside
the walls are not my home
you know of course
the empty space is where I spend my time
the outside comes and goes
I don't know how
but I don't mind it
we get along just fine
the air the dirt and I are all around
there are no boundaries to a life

The only thing that makes you what you are
is everything you think you're not
You're bound to be let down
if you believe in everything you think you've got
see if you can't embrace
the empty space that makes up
what you call your heart
Short of the mall or alcohol
I don't know another way than art

Relax that apathy
react at last
do all things perfectly
as in the past
use all your energy
give up the chase
you can't pretend to be
any more than empty space
your face is a gift anyway

I missed the feeling of conflict
as if it could be any more obvious
the he was no different from me
just a wave in the sea that we all need to be
and I was no more than the time
that it took to reply to the wind outside
