Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Don't pretend that you understand. I just wanted to write it.
Hear that music?
See anything with it?
No? Not at all?
Not even a little bit?

I'm alone in this.
Aren't I?
Someone, anyone, please
Tell me why.

I know, I guess.
It's just hard to believe.
This domino effect, this culmination,
Just makes me want to leave.

Leave this human world,
Controlled by my dull human eyes.
Go somewhere better,
Guided by stories and my mind.

I can't, and I probably wouldn't.
Not yet, I'm too attached to this place.
I have a family. I have friends.
But I feel like I'm caught in a race.

A race for the better,
One I'm running alone.
It feels endless,
And nobody else knows.

But don't turn off the music.
I can still have fun, I can still dance,
Even with colors faded,
I think I have a fighting chance.
