Something Vague.

Now and again it seems worse than it is,
but mostly the view is accurate.
You see your breath in the air as you climb up the stairs
to that coffin you call your apartment.
And you sink in your chair,
brush the snow from your hair
and drink the cold away.
And you are not really sure what you're doing this for
but you need something to fill up the days.
A few more hours.
There's a dream in my brain that just won’t go away.
It's been stuck there since it came a few nights ago.
And I’m standing on a bridge in the town where I lived
as a kid with my mom and my brothers.
And then the bridge disappears
and I’m standing on air,
with nothing holding me.
And I hang like a star,
freakin glow in the dark,
for all those starving eyes to see,
like the ones we’ve wished on.
Now I’m confused.
Is this death really you?
Do these dreams have any meaning?
No. No, I think it is more like a ghost
that has been following us both.
Something vague that we're not seeing,
something more like a feeling.

The first line of this song is what hits me the hardest.
Now and again, it seems worse than it is

  1. Diabetes
  2. The sibling situation
  3. School
  4. Friends

But mostly, the view is accurate.
Quite accurate.
