Difficult is not impossible - Relient K, "Hope for Every Fallen Man"

If all I had was love, would I still be lovely?
If all I gave was love, would you give up on me?
-House of Heroes, "Love is for the Middle Class"

Lead me away from assumption-
away from the accusing tone,
like nails on a chalkboard
in a room full of mirrors.
Where is it coming from?
The incessant screech squirming
first through my skin, then through my skull
and into my cerebral where permanent damage is done.

Lead me away-
into the stars
that hold the dreams of kind strangers
and the smiles of those whom I envy,
with each a connection is made,
as they feel the same toward another.

Wow. Well... I don't really understand it. I don't really want to understand, but... wow. It's really good.
