    You own this



on your own the world interferes
with emotion's electrical overload
what you find is a lone happy tear
giving way to a gusher of opposites
sitting by with your big watchful eye
sinking quick from the power of overnight
estimate on their own time to die
spit results when there's no more than meets the sigh

i was true to the mark
on time
but why remove when you could comply?

make it up in a kissing booth
finding all kinds of filler to mask the shrine
getting off on your one lonely truth
skipping town for the sake of the open fire
find a fault that might entertain
he's got a story for each bottle on the wall
getting stuck in the crutch of the rain
charging forth with a bounce worthy of a fall

all in all you're true to the mark
on call
and small in proving a worthy cause

you're just reverting backwards
when the fact remains
that you won't find out
until the truth gets loud
and the target's safe and sound
and you're true to the mark you found
