I got a succulent today Left it outside to get some sun I gave it water and some love When I came back it came to wilt It perked up from inside my room The less I did, the more it grew Why did it wilt from tenderness? What if that succulent was me?

Born into the stratosphere I picked myself up by my bootstraps You ever hear of hard work? I’m a self-made man I’m a self-made man What do you mean, there’s no ethical consumption under late capitalism? What do you mean, family wealth is the biggest predictor of success in the united states? What are you talking about, we live in a meritocracy No, no, no I did it, it was me, it always me I’m a good entrepreneur I earned this, now go earn yours I’m a self-made man I’m a self-made man I’m a self-made man

I fell asleep My room was peace I went to work Walked up stairs and had a conversation Slept like a dream last night, baby Overcharged the battery again Zoom meeting Go for a run Exhausted Or so I thought I’m stuck in quarantine And I can’t sleep tonight Zoom meeting Go for a run Exhausted Or so I thought I’m stuck in quarantine And I can’t sleep tonight I haven’t left my room And now my eyes won’t shut Stayed out too late Shooting the breeze Wanted to leave Just kidding, can you imagine that? This sucks Slept like a dream a year ago Overcharged the battery again (sax solo: Drew Vandewinckel) I’m stuck in quarantine And I can’t sleep tonight I haven’t left my room And now my eyes won’t shut

Geology undergirds me I’m a rock So long ago crystals were formed, like DNA Set in stone Immobile Unchanging No feeling Even if I don’t want to be firm Motionless Solid rock Even if I don’t want to be I wish I could recrystallize Grow anew Told a boulder what to do, and I hurt you Slab for brains Immobile Unchanging No feeling Even if I don’t want to be firm Motionless Solid rock Even if I don’t want to be

Drawing on the wall Obviously wrong Did it anyway I apologize Go clean up my mess But there is a stain that won’t ever come out I said that I was still learning My foot in my mouth Saying something dumb Miscommunicate I apologize You accept it as Miscommunication, but it hurts I’m still learning that words can’t be wiped off the walls
