FreewaySignals lost amongst the chatter that fills the car. Audible sounds carry rhythm and words but neither are really observed to a great degree. Other noises are there too, into one ear, but not out the other. Into one mouth, but no words spoken. Children kicking and screaming for deep fried food and small plastic toys. The late afternoon carries CO2 and complacency. Blue cars and trucks, single file, construction on the freeway, expect delays.
Back down the clock, its five in the morning, and coffee and sugar coated snacks help bring the world of consumerism to wakefulness, unwillingly and with no sense of mercy or indulgence. White shirts, collar down, well done tie. Of course its a clip on, trying to put that much effort into a piece of cloth that hangs on ones neck is too much effort when the god damn sun isnt even up yet.
Mid afternoon, and at that hellish hour, people in sweat covered shirts try to repair the freeway, trying to do most of the work when the fl

Its always the same, and for that reason, I have come.
The problems humans perpetuate are so easy to solve, that even they know the answers. The thing is, all they ever do is piss and moan. Theyre not willing to stand up for anything, theyre not willing to riot, and theyre not willing to inconvenience themselves. The problems exist forever onward, over and over.
Its the same shit, with a different name every time.
Religion, politics, famine, economics, starvation, disease, it is well within their power to fix all of these things.
They have so many voices, shouting so many different things, but words are pointless when the world is burning! Language has devolved into a series of nodding and grunts. They dont do anything with it. They dumb it down, slash at it. Simplify it It means nothing now because the power the words had is gone.
Now there is just fire, and catch phrases.
Im done with this, done watching, done with your will, done

Catch yourself screaming at the wall, and wonder what the screaming is about. Are you yelling for change, or just for things to go your way? Will you budge, or are you just another wall yelling at one you dont like looking at.
The spaces in between start to bleed out, and it all means nothing.
Not to me.
Aidens come here to murder the CEO of some pointless empire. A man self appointed to rule over his subjects oh, Im sorry. Theyre called employees now.
Ive lived long enough to know how his plight would have ended so Im going to do something different for a change Im going to interact with him.
All goes according to L.E.Xs will, all security is gone for the time being, and Aidens path is free and clear. L.E.X promised him a one way ticket, and Aiden was happy to agree with it, because it meant that he could finally have that death he dreamed of. Inspire change, die in battle, he dreamt of a world where h

The process that created the human mind was really just a large event of trial and error that lasted for eons. The perfecting of the mind, the shaping of the human brain slight alterations in how primitive humans functioned, created what exists today.
Their genesis was natural, logical, and an eventuality of evolution.
It is remarkable, how theyve managed to not only adapt and understand their creation, and how they came to be through trial and error again, theyve begun the process anew.
It started with an old operating system, one that was tweaked by some people to work on its own, fish out information from the great sea of data, and bring back what it was programmed to.
The funny thing is, their code was flawed. They didnt know it, because on their end, it was all working perfectly. However, as the little digital spiders were building their webs to catch information, they werent taking them down. The system was basically slowly spreading itself amo
A Great ViewI sat upon the mountain side, where great views have oft aligned
And within that stretch I could see the limited reach of mankind.
Where so many wounded hearts have tried to fly blind
And where so many souls have been left behind.
I sat there knowing, that youd pull me through.
I sat there awaiting all the things youd do.
Within my eyes, I saw a million children hopelessly crying
And amongst those cries, the poor were still dying
Amidst the debris, the politicians were still lying
And against all odds, you were still trying.
I sat there praying, that Id see your face again.
I stood still and hoped that this was not how it would end.
Amongst the haze filled streets and urban decay
The sun finally set in such a wonderful way
And the words were there, but I could never convey
What it was that I really felt that day.
I stood there smiling, waiting to finally see you.
I stood there crying, knowing that this would start anew.
High above the buildings, where they look for go

There is much lost in translation of thought to words spoken. Reflective eyes gaze out amongst the dust and rot of a world long forgotten. The last oil fields left amongst humanity, before their backs being put against the wall forced them into alternative methods of power consumption. Theres still quite a bit of oil to be found here, but its all worthless now. Back when Aiden was fighting to defend this place, oil was worth more than any precious metal.
This field is worth nothing. All the corpses that burned under the harsh son the children of purity, burned before the might of industry.
Technology has improved so much. Bombs are deadlier, and are better able to find their targets. Bullets are tougher, and can slice through any kind of armor. New methods of defying aging are advertised every moment for every facet of youth obsessed elderly fools.
Their planet is dying, but they dont care, its just a space to occupy.
New ways to live.
New ways to kill.

As they mix about in pointless violent tedium, the blades from up above hold the strings at such a desperate length. So many pointless wars, so few real good reasons. The ideological struggles are so deeply rooted now in trends and economics, that bloodshed is seasonal in certain regions.
Aiden walks among the crowd and tries to figure out where hes going, but its not coming to him.
He wanders with a sharp pain in his false leg, but hes learned to deal with it. Its now just a dull throb to him, one thats never gone away.
There are so many reminders of a world he hates looking around him. What little resources people have left are still dedicated to the bottom line of quarterly sales charts. Animated billboards telling people how a certain brand of shoes or deodorant can get them laid, fashion advice mostly telling people that brands are everything, and are the only way your friends will know who you really are.

DanceIn the lightning covered rain, I saw it all as plain as day
Neither of us could be happy, because neither of us would get our way.
In the mystifying lights that pranced so high up in the sky
I saw you in my arms, and then I saw a cruel goodbye.
The water on the ground, bounces back up to the sound
Of the arguments and places that are so well renowned.
So whats left but chance, and this dead romance?
I could be a part of you, if only you could be a part of me.
So whats left but chance, and this disgusting dance?
In the end we feel alone, even when were side by side.
Amongst the fire and the flames, that spread about fury and decay
Your eyes burned through me in quite an awkward display.
And as the flames burned so bright amongst this awful muggy night
I kept my words in my head, and did my best to stay polite.
What you incite with your words has only made me feel much worse
I understood that it was me, and there was no way to put this in reverse.

You never told me what your name is supposed to mean.
Living Electronic Xenogenesis. I am false, but I am and I have no idea how I came to be.
You said you had a hunch?
Not much just an assumption. Figuring that maybe something went wrong with a network agent, and that caused a splintering of its core, which then went off into the wide world of wires and signals eventually, information collected like a snowball running down a mountain, and the end result was me. I was not born like you one day, I was simply aware and that was it.
You came to be as what you are now no growth, no gradual development, no trial and error to be created with such an innate sense of knowledge.
Knowledge means nothing without the context, understanding is what I seek.
Then youve come to the wrong person.
I doubt that, Prophet.
Well have to finish this

Sight beyond the shore
One element and another three

I Have to Keep MovingI have to keep moving.
I have to keep moving.
I have to keep moving.
I cannot stay still.
I have to keep moving -
If purpose can't find me,
My pain and my sorrows
They'll taunt me and tease me,
Deride and berate me,
And haunt me until I'm
Feeling quite ill.
I have to keep moving.
I have to keep moving.
I have to keep moving.
I cannot stay still.
From sunrise to sunset,
From dusk until dawning,
My mind is in motion
My yearning for solace,
For peace from my nightmare,
Propels me to move on
The daylight is best when,
Immersed in life's business,
My body's in motion,
But nighttime is frightful,
When I lie alone and
I see them advancing,
They wait in the shadows,
They wait for my stillness,
They wait in the dark corners
Of my mind.
They wait 'til I'm idle,
Then pounce and attack me.
They're not puny foes
I can easily fight.
They go for my heart,
And they go for my head,
And they go for the small part
That keeps me alive
Never The Same AgainShattered tears,
And bloodshot eyes;
And a broken mind.
All because he
He caused this pain;
But he can hurt me no more
Washed away like rain.
Then why do I feel like,
Like nothing has changed.
He'll never go away
I'm haunted all the same.
And blood soaked sheets;
No more fears,
Only broken dreams.
Schrodinger's Pet Schrödinger's Pet
The only way to have both cats
Is to not open the box.
But, then again, the the content
Will be naught but a dormant world.
Imagination can't replace experience
You will feel different when you touch the fur.
Change is the way of the universe
So you must lift the lid,
Live the change,
Or melt in limbo
as empty page
Until you die for sure.
Thoughts and ShadowsConquering thoughts and shadows
The pitcher of my life
Things that once did matter
Now take on a new light
In the corner of my mind
I sense a shallow feeling
That when my life has passed me by
All that's left is dreaming
Slowly I start to wonder why
This world is always bleeding
Release me in my darkest night
A restless heart that's beating
Come save me from a new dawning
Of certain destruction
The world is so mixed up and torn
And life is one production
Carry me to safe shores
Carry me through the night
So I won't see the sun dawning
The destruction of the light
Blind my eyes
My thoughts, my fears
Hear my cries
And catch my tears
Bottle them for memories sake
And start a new beginning
Where peace and love is there to take
And there's no threat in living
ConflictIn this grey world,
Conflict seems the norm,
From man to nature,
To the bird and the worm.
It doesn't matter
If it is physically waged.
It comes from within and without,
From short to long ranged.
Be they matters of the heart,
Or matters of money and gold.
There is nothing one cannot fight,
To get a close hold.
Not to say that it isn't necessary,
I believe it just should be moderated,
With kindness and compassion,
To not seem like such a mad craven.
Sure the violence and discord,
Is to be somewhat frowned upon,
But without it we couldn't have revolutions,
Or learn to let go and move on.
So I ask you people,
To carefully reflect,
On the most natural of concepts,
That one cannot simply reject.
Though it is a cruel truth,
It can lead to happiness,
Trust me for a bit,
It's worth all the sadness.
Walk In My ShoesThat crazy girl
What’s with her head?
She’s shining one moment
Then clams up as dead
She’s talking to someone
A ghost we can’t see
He mustn’t be real
Just a sad fantasy
Her lover has left
Now she cannot move on
Her mind has built fears
Where they do not belong!
But he’s there and he’s real
And he won’t go away
Though mostly, these days
In the shadow he stays
But this week he revealed
He came out of the thick
Someone was getting
Too close to his chick
Old friends, they know
They’ve seen the games
This pattern has played out
Time and again
She thought it was over
She thought she was free
But that sweet delusion
Is the real fantasy
He leaves her sweet songs
Would you like to hear?
Then tell her that she has
No reason to fear
Some moods are natural
Some are induced
There is nothing but sorrow
When love turns to abuse
A Daily GrindSlackened views
In dusty shoes
A trample to the sound
On gavel, just a civil judge
A hammer slamming down
Of penitence, atoning time
And probing of your worth
A muddy haze through lazy days
As water is to earth
A number issued
Stole a name
As in these days it must
In population's upward climb
Of bearing dawn till dusk
A rebel in a wayward soul
Meanders down the road
A pressing search for pots of gold
A shoulder's heavy load
Domesticated pots and pans
Hung gleaming in their rows
Tired feet and dishwash hands
As children age and grow
Work through the rain
Past soiled weary sights
Production carries through the day
Till five o'clock at night
Pens are pushed
Down many page
And clocks are watched most oft
Calculations buzz in air
But every soul
To what they do
Must spend a time in sleep
And travel through a land of dreams
Subconsciously to keep
Unspoken words"I love you".
That's not what I want to say.
Words that burn my mind and tounge.
Phrases like poison.
Escaping my lips.
"You are my dearest one".
No you're not, not anymore.
My heart is aching.
Burning me alive.
I disgust myself each day.
Calling you sweet names.
Making me want to barf.
"You're so funny!"
No, you are not funny!
Quit that attitude!
Would you please grow up?
Some anniversary, huh?
Hanging on your arm.
Like some little doll.
"Whatever you want, dearest".
I do not care about them.
Thought up when you're drunk.
"I... don't want to".
I said "no", you big moron.
And this is no joke.
You don't believe me?
Have a good life, bye-bye boy!
Because you changed.
And you know what, dear?
"I'm not interested in you anymore".
Let in the DayStanding around late at night
Cure disease, cure my blight.
Make sure things are alright.
Don't take a sudden turn
Don't dismiss the things you learn.
Take for granted all the things you love
Take advantage of everyone's trust.
Don't be looking around anymore
Get up off that damn floor
Move out of that rut you're in
Finally get things moving again.
Down the road, across the unknown
Lying on the floor licking your wounds
Open that window for a change
Let in some light, let in the day.
It's a new day; there are new things to see
The sun outside's so bright I couldn't believe.
Time to move, time to go, time to progress
There's no time left for you to regress.
The sun will shine, the moon will rise
Standing still doesn't mean the day won't go by.
There's not much time left to wander
But more then enough left to ponder.
