about

This is a song I wrote and performed with Tina, Age 13

lyrics

Every time you look that way, I wonder if you're gone forever.
We've been so freaked out these day, and things seem so unreal.
Take a walk around the block
or anything that makes you happy.
The way you spread your poison is wrong.
Why don't you weigh the stones you throw?
We sit so beside ourselves
Besides ourselves, there's plenty others.
Take a look around us, man.
Our islands sit by countless others.
Tolerance, a word I learned to keep inside what drives me crazy.
Silence is it's own reply.
Why the fuck don't you think

I try to be myself, you see yourself.
Be sure you weigh all the stones we're throwing.

Every single word is true.
Hypocrisy is always easy.
Faults that glare on someone else,
probably shine on me.
Here I sit, pontificate, a jaded fuck.
The things I hate come back to me in things I do.
Check Myself! See Yourself!

Be myself. See yourself.
Be sure you weigh all the stones we're throwing.

I try not to be a jaded fuck
