I totally stole the "kicking air" phrase from Frances Quinlan of Hop Along. Thanks Frank.


I'm learning to work with what I have
Work with what I've got
I wake up kicking air to save me from my sleep

I'm suffering and I tell myself that maybe this year it's okay to be happy
That I deserve these tiny victories
That they're not just dumb luck
But a reward for hard work

Self sacrifice and success by proxy are hardly the best ways to get what I need
Dumbing myself down just leads to my disinterest

So I ask myself, "what's the point? When I can barely stand the sound of my own voice."
It's insincere and I don't think that I can last much longer than this year

I'm working with the best that I've got
But it's not enough
I'm kicking air to save me
From boredom
From my sleep
From decay
