LA BREA TAR PITS IT’S A THING WE ALL LOOK UP TO. WITH A QUESTION OF WHY WE ALL DO. A REPUTATION THAT COULDN’T BE SURPASSED. BUT YOUR RELEVANT DAYS WERE DECADES PASSED. THE BIGGEST NAMES. NOTORIOUS. A FALL FROM GRACE. A MOVE BEYOND. A BIGGER SWING. A RETURN TO SAVE FACE. TAKE ANOTHER LOOK. COMPARE AND CONTRAST. IT’S JUST A NAME. FOREVER BEING. DROPPED, CLAIMED, AND REHASHED. SO MANY MAKE THE PILGRIMAGE JUST TO BE LET DOWN. THE IMAGE TRAPPED IN AMBER WON’T BE FOUND THE CLUBS ARE CLOSED. THE STORES ARE GONE. THE GRAFFITI WAS WIPED CLEAN. WHEN THE SPOTLIGHT SHINES, CAMERAS ON. THE DINOSAURS ARE SEEN.

WOODFOX 01:06
WOODFOX ALL OF THE DAYS STUCK IN A CAGE. ALONE WITH HIS THOUGHTS. FOUR WALLS AND A COT. INNOCENT, BUT STILL CONVICTED. BECAUSE OF YOUR VIEWS, YOU’RE RESTRICTED. WITH A VOICE THEY COULDN’T STOP LOCKED AWAY AND LEFT TO ROT. DECADES LOST, NO RETURN. PERSEVERE AS THE WORLD TURNS ABUSING THEIR DISCRETION. TO TEACH A FUCKING LESSON HUMANITY IS LOST WILL TO LIVE IS QUASHED. TO ONLY NUMBERS AND A COST. INNOCENT, BUT STILL CONVICTED. BECAUSE OF YOUR VIEWS, YOU’RE RESTRICTED. WITH A VOICE THEY COULDN’T STOP LOCKED AWAY AND LEFT TO ROT.
3.
LAST WORD // LAST ACT SO MANY PEOPLE COME AND GO. IT CAN’T BE AVOIDED SOME MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE AND SOME JUST DESTROY IT LAST WORD. LAST ACT – YOU CAN CHANGE THAT. LAST WORD. LAST ACT – OR JUST LET IT PASS. LEFT WITH REGRET OF THINGS THAT WERE LEFT UNSAID. WATCH THOSE AROUND YOU MOURN A FRIEND WHO’S NOW DEAD LIFE AND DEATH HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A BIT INTERTWINED. I’D BE LYING IF I SAID IT WASN’T ALWAYS ON MY MIND. IS THIS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD MAKE ME FEEL GUILT? MY LIFE HAS CRASHED AND BURNED AND STILL GOT REBUILD. I CAN’T CHANGE HOW I’M WIRED OR THE THOUGHTS I HAVE. ONLY TO JUST WAIT THEM OUT UNTIL THEY PASS FIND A DISTRACTION. TAKE YOUR THOUGHTS AWAY. NO REACTION. JUST TO FACE THE DAY. PERSEVERANCE. NUMB TO EVERYTHING. DECADES LATER. I’M STILL THE SAME
4.
INFINITE REAPER DECISIONS MADE IN THE HEAT WITH THE EXPECTATION OF DEFEAT AS THE TIME MARCHES ON LEFT TO WONDER WHEN I’LL BE GONE. DECISIONS MADE FOR THE BEST STILL STANDING WITH THE REST “LIVE FAST, DIE YOUNG”? LEFT TO WONDER WHERE I WENT SO WRONG
5.
ON DISPLAY 00:38
ON DISPLAY THERE’S ONLY SO LONG YOU CAN COVER YOUR TRACKS AT EVERY TURN THERE’S EYES ON YOUR BACK. NO SOLUTION TO ESCAPE THIS NET. AT THIS POINT, I’LL JUST SUBMIT. ACCEPT DEFEAT. EMBRACE THE DAY. AS MY WHOLE LIFE IS ON DISPLAY. THERE’S ONLY SO LONG YOU CAN COVER YOUR TRACKS.
6.
NO COMPROMISE ENTIRE PLANET LOCALIZED TO ONLY WHAT YOU SEE ONLY CARE FOR LIKE MINDS. EVERYONE MUST AGREE. SADIST AT THE CONCEPT OF ANOTHER’S PLIGHT LAUGHING AT THE IDEA OF ANOTHER’S FRIGHT. NO INTEREST IN COMPROMISE. SUPERIORITY UNABLE TO EMPATHIZE, ONLY DISAGREE. A FANTASY OF TRAUMA SHOULD GIVE YOU PAUSE INSTEAD, YOU LAUGH WITH SATISFACTION. IGNORING YOUR FLAWS. SEE YOURSELF AS ALWAYS RIGHT. A TRUE AUTHORITY. INSULATE AND ISOLATE. A FALSE REALITY. WHEN PROGRESS AND OPEN ARMS ARE SEEN NEGATIVELY THEN THERE’S NO WAY YOU AND I CAN SEE EYE TO EYE AND NEVER, NEVER. SEE YOURSELF AS ALWAYS RIGHT. A TRUE AUTHORITY. INSULATE AND ISOLATE. A FALSE REALITY. WHEN PROGRESS AND OPEN ARMS ARE SEEN NEGATIVELY THEN THERE’S NO WAY YOU AND I CAN SEE EYE TO EYE AND EVER, EVER AGREE
7.
SUBSTITUTIONS NOT ONE SINGLE WAY. OPINIONS ARE VAST. SO MANY VOICES DIFFERENT FROM THE LAST. THERE ARE PIECES THAT CAN’T BE LEFT OUT. IT SHOULDN’T BE A PLACE FOR STEPPING ON THOSE AROUND YOU TO GET AHEAD. NOT A STOP ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS, FAME, AND GLORY. YOU CAN’T REMOVE YOUR OWN EFFECT THE THINGS YOU DO TO MAKE IT WORK. FOLLOWING THE RECIPE OF SOMEONE ELSE. EXPECTING THE OUTCOME FOR YOURSELF.
8.
THEY CAN’T PRINT THAT NO FEAR OF BLOWBACK. ACT WITH AGGRESSION TORMENT ANOTHER. WON’T LEARN A LESSON DEPERSONALIZE THOSE AROUND YOU . DESPICABLE ACTIONS. YOU WALK AWAY UNHARMED LIKE NOTHING JUST HAPPENED A JOKE FOR YOUR BUDDIES. A SLAP ON THE WRIST THE STRONGEST PROTECTION FOR YOUR LOVE OF SHIT YOU HARASS AND TORTURE ALL FOR YOUR FUN APPEAL, SUCCEED AND WALK AWAY WITH A BADGE AND A GUN.
9.
MALPRACTICE 02:24
MALPRACTICE OVERWHELMED. ALL SIDES CLOSING IN. CONSTANT SHAKE. DULL THE PAIN. FACE ANOTHER DAY AGAIN. NO ESCAPE. TRYING HARD JUST TO GET BACK MEDICATE. TRY TO GET WHOLE AGAIN. BEGIN TO FADE. NOT ENOUGH. NEED EVEN MORE TO COPE. NO ESCAPE. TRYING HARD JUST TO GET BACK NO SIGNS OF WHAT YOU WERE. TOMORROW IS SO FAR AWAY. DECISIONS MADE ARE NOT YOUR OWN. CAN’T BELIEVE IT TURNED OUT THIS WAY. STARTED AS A WAY OUT, NOW YOU JUST WANT BACK IN TRYING JUST TO BE YOURSELF BUT THEN YOU’RE IN SICK AGAIN. CHASE THE FEELINGS YOU ONCE HAD. TRY TO FINALLY ESCAPE. DULL THE WORLD ALL AROUND YOU AS YOU SELF-MEDICATE. WHAT STARTED AS A WAY OUT, NOW YOU JUST WANT BACK IN.
