Guitar by Jules Figueroa


. 22nd day of the third trimester Holy Trinity play as the Rhythm Section
Established the righteous Voice through my midsection
A myriad of words Turner verse into a life lesson
I think it's gershwin but if Earth Wind and Fire science
Until the whole lot of water flows I'm sick like Anne Frank with typhus
long-running Guiding Light with Dusty Springfield's
Whole Lotta Love Like Robert Plant with a busty cheat meal
What's a . 9 to 5 when you 99 in a Stillwater Mindbender
What's a godsend if you left the doctor clock to clone your baby
Cuz you lost your icon and your wife on the periodic table
. You know cuz I can feel like you can knock some off your neighbor
online saying that I'm Petty all lights yellow like i'm Patrick
Anyone swayze Dempsey Ewing you don't understand im sarcastic
I feel actually for a long time I've been holding back
But I've been busting since before I was holding old navy go backs

I lay in waste sharp utensils on my plate
Hold it with my fingers Just to feel all I've made

8 dollars an hour
8 hours of pulse
Listen all feelings gone I let go of the ropes

8 days a week regarding weapons that prosper
Stand against me in judgement
So I stuck to my comments
Fear and loathing with Gonzo
Homesick with nostalgia
Don't slip into darkness

All day music formed from widespread panic
Talk to Dr. John or Greg Allman
Couple night trippers and midnight rider
Trying to remember what a mermaid smells like
It could take a whole crow nation
Just to taste my recollection
Continue asking me questions

Paleolithic age
Desecrate my remains
Until one skull surface
Keep holding on to the reins
with bated breath and ever humble refrains
Who ever is in charge better double up my pay
triple darkness seduce couple up with the games
Fear speaking the truth is like holding on to the pain

Fully loved when your sunny but few loving the shadows
Takes some kind of warrior to wear his scars into battle

Thinking of the fear that is gone or more like its been buried
Thinking about the truths that's ours I've never been into theories
Thinking about this stories mine I've never been into sharing
Thinking about the time that's come to get rid of the fearing

I better stop telling my age my soul is ahead of my body
Jurisdiction of my mindset building intellectual property
When somebody hears it they acknowledge my honesty
Symbolizes the beings the mutation into a oddity
