"If Not Us"

by BETTER TIMES

/
1.
IF NOT US THEN WHO? IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN?
2.
EVERY WORLD I'VE EVER SAID YOU'VE HERD A MILLION TIMES BEFORE. BUT ALL THE DREAMS I'VE EVER DREAMT HAVE NEVER MATTERED MORE. I'M SEARCHING FOR SOME COURAGE TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT. I'M WORKING UP AN APPETITE FOR ALL THAT'S ON MY PLATE. ELUSIVE MOTIVATION. IT IS SO HARD TO FIND. SOMETIMES THE BIGGEST SHOES TO FILL ARE THE ONES THAT ARE MINE. I'LL RAISE MY FIST AND RAISE MY VOICE REGARDLESS OF WHO'S AROUND. I'M A BROKEN RECORD, TRIED AND TRUE BUT AT LEAST I'M MAKING A SOUND.
3.
I DON'T DRINK I DON'T SMOKE MY LIFE IS NOT A FUCKING JOKE STEEL TOED YOUTH
4.
I'M NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR OPINION AND I'M NOT SORRY THAT I CAN'T RELATE. DROWNING IN FILTH, YOUR SINKING NOT SWIMMING SHIT-EATING GRIN AS YOU WITHER AWAY. TEENAGE COKE FIEND WE GET IT BROADCAST YOUR DEPRAVITY WE GET IT THE WORLD ISN'T QUITE ENOUGH WHEN YOU'RE HELL BENT ON NOTHING AT ALL. YOU'VE LINED UP YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS SO THEY CAN WATCH YOU FALL. TEENAGE COKE FIEND WE GET IT YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEE WE GET IT WE GET IT
5.
SCREAMING FOR UNITY, WE SAY WE'RE ALL THE SAME, BUT WE'RE SO QUICK TO POINT OUT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN. THEY SEE THE LOOKS WE GIVE, THEY HEAR THE JOKES WE MAKE. WHAT KIND OF SCENE DO WE WANT TO HAVE, PUSHING EVERYONE AWAY? SCREAMING FOR UNITY, WE SAY WE'RE ALL THE SAME, BUT WE'RE SO QUICK TO POINT IT OUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN. IF WE'RE STRIVING FOR RESPECT BROTHER / SISTER HOOD AS OUR GOAL WE CAN'T AFFORD TO TREAT OTHERS AS A SECOND-CLASS SPECTACLE NO MORE SIDELONG GLANCES FUCK YOUR SIDELONG GLANCES
6.
YOU'RE 0 FOR 2, I KNEW YOU'D NEVER LAST. STARING AT THE GROUND AS YOU'RE TRUDGING THROUGH THE PAST. I'M CUTTING YOU OFF, YOUR FRIENDSHIP IS USELESS. YOU WANT CHANGE BUT YOU'VE GOT NOTHING BUT EXCUSES. I SEE YOU KNOW IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT. I'M OVER ALL THIS, IT'S NOT WORTH THE FIGHT. YOU'RE NOT THE SAME PERSON YOU WERE LAST WEEK, SO KEEP IT TO YOURSELF BECAUSE YOUR TALK IS CHEAP.
7.
THE APATHY, IT IS SO FUCKING SICKENING. YOU GO TO WORK, GO TO SLEEP AND IN BETWEEN YOU WATCH TV. MINDLESS ENTERTAINMENT TO FILL THE MINDLESS DAYS. WHEN IT COMES TO REAL - WORLD ISSUES YOU SAY YOU "CAN'T RELATE". WE'RE KNEE- DEEP IN A RECESSION AND A LEFT/RIGHT WING SOCIAL WAR, YET YOU'RE MORE ABSORBED BY FASHION AND CLOWNS IN THE JERSEY SHORE. BE WHAT YOU WANT JUST DON'T BE INDIFFERENT.
