When I feel myself question my sanity how could I ever trust you how could I trust myself I feel myself losing my grasp of reality slipping and falling into the depths of anxiety I can’t breathe I can’t see I can’t breathe I can’t see isn’t there any hope for me
You’ve given your all but still have a problem you’ve taken a fall but still aren’t stopping one more attempt to get it right this is the one success is in sight lean back relax arms up retract lock in feel it turn out got it
So you think you’ve got the right to take what you want I heard you think it’s cool to boast about it like no one’s gonna say anything I guess you’d say they had it coming no we’re not going to stand for it get the fuck out of our home dehumanizing objectifying exploiting them and sexualizing we won’t tolerate or accept it if we see it you better run quick no we’re not going to stand for it get the fuck out of our no we’re not going to stand for it get the fuck out of our home
I’ve heard you’ve come here looking for the one the one who will heal you and save you from yourself I’ve got news for you you’ve come to the right place all you have to do is do exactly as I say just put all your trust in me and don’t forget to pay for a measly little price salvation’s on the way just come back next week and don’t forget to pay I guarantee you there is no other way you know you know you’ve got to pay for your salvation there is no other way I guarantee you there is no other way no way
Book excerpts read by Amanda Barron
You face the world with everything you’ve got you faced the world looking for love for love did you find what you’re looking for did you find everything they told you you’d see or did you just keep running in circles like me settling just like me forever alone searching for meaning searching for a meaning to this life longing for
Can you feel it you feel like you’ll take on the world a feeling like never before you see the injustice and you you see that you’re not alone you’re not ­ alone never ever alone you’re not alone now take it take it and run share it and multiply it fan it and watch it burn you see that you’re not alone you’re not alone never ever alone you’re not alone you’ve felt their pain inside you’ve known the loneliness that they hide but you won’t believe the lies this time never give up go watch it burn watch it fucking burn never let up
Body Right 02:27
They’ve got our rights on the run and they won’t stop until it’s done until everyone of us conform to what they believe is right for everyone so you expect me to just lie down and make it easy for you well fuck that I’m standing my ground for me and what I believe that a woman should have the right to choose what she does with her body it really is not up to you what she does with her body that a person’s gender is none of your concern a person’s sexual preference is none of your concern everyone of every race and gender deserves kindness love respect and opportunity
Shepwrecked 01:28
Where do you go when the place you once called home feels like the place you always ran from fuck no love here not anymore where do you go if you have no home and you feel like letting go despise I despise you these cries they remind me of a time I felt I was alone these surrounding walls those surrounding bodies no love no love no love here
Overwhelming feelings of pressure weigh down on me chaos around me in this seemingly beautiful world how am I supposed to realize when the same voice screaming inside wants to live but also wants to die Why should I why should I why should I even try you have to live you have to try try to find what’s inside fuck this place fuck this world it’s full of hate and full of lies who gives a shit you have to live to try to find what’s inside if I’d failed if I’d have given up I would’ve never known my truth I would’ve never found you you would’ve never known me and in this lies the reality it isn’t about the outside it isn’t even about the inside it all Comes down to you and me what we have what we share how we build our community
