Raccoon Disguise

Sunken black eyes check my raccoon disguise

A sack full of potential

conscience spouting true lies

"It can always get worse than this" they said

theres no talking sense to walking dead

Goals that never made the highlight reel

Races won simply by standing still

A career of struggling to breath

Juggling nihilism and a loosening grip on reality


I use this break dance

to camouflage my breakdowns

I question the character of those that

still seem to want me around

Don't know how to perceive any random situation

Am I a pig awaiting slaughter?

Or the guy bringing home the bacon?

The Wallenda family would be pretty impressed

As I negotiate the tightrope

between helpless and useless

The crowd in awe, and at the edge of their seats

Soaking in the potential for potential defeat.

Sunken black eyes

Check my raccoon disguise

Sack full of potential

My conscience spouting true lies

It can always get worse is what they said

There's no talking sense to walking dead

It can always get worse inside your head

There's no talking sense to walking dead
