i moustache you a question are you ready for the new year? i'm not but i'm trying to get some hype here no different than the previous volumes stress out, cry, complain and then the yelling resumes i used to think that i had what it takes to be liked i used to love to create but now my process be like fake it, hate it, debate it, then overcomplicate it make it, slate it, deflate it, then just humiliate it both halves of my psyche fighting for the throne but now they've made up and teamed up and i'm here all alone there's no time, there's no time still haven’t decided if this project’s legit still haven’t decided when i’m gonna quit still haven’t decided if it’s worth it still haven’t decided if i give a shit

Mourning 03:42
waking up in the morning knowing i made a mistake waking up in the morning wishing that i didn't break waking up in the morning praying my soul to take waking up and i'm mourning that i always ache waking up in the morning thinking i made a mistake waking up in the morning knowing i can’t relate hiding the pain when the kids are near bracing the hate inside with my fear waking up and i'm mourning that i am a fake waking up in the morning hoping that i am okay waking up in the morning knowing i lost my way quieter outbursts as i take the stage quiet the storm inside as it fades waking up and i'm mourning that i made a mistake

been thinking 'bout my star wars song this year and i'm so excited may the 4th is finally here the bad batch is out right now but i don't even know what it's about i know it's clones and they're doing clone shit messing up the plan of separatists they're an elite trooper team and there's probably something about them that they must redeem in the eyes of those in charge but what's the deeper story? is it all pew-pew and jedi glory? will the character arcs have a gradual slide? will the easter eggs ignite fanboy pride? well i don't care because when it comes to star wars content give me every little bit i was raised in the decade drought between ‘84 and ‘96 live action or animation stories big and small hell, i’d even watch a jar jar show over no star wars content at all content at all the expanded universe once reigned supreme luke was the dopest jedi that we'd ever seen can we just politely discuss are there too many star wars shows on disney plus? no there's not because when it comes to star wars content give me every little bit i was raised in the decade drought between ‘84 and ‘96 live action or animation stories big and small hell, i’d even watch a jar jar show over no star wars content at all content at all because when it comes to star wars content give me every little bit i was raised in the decade drought between ‘84 and ‘96 live action or animation stories big and small hell, i’d even watch jar jar taking a shit over no star wars content at all

14.
let's take a walk outside just to clear our heads let's take a moment's time to feel every second pass and maybe we can slow this evening down let's take a walk outside just to feel alive let's thank the universe for knowing what we need and maybe we can slow this moment down let's take a walk outside just to see the sunset what if we don't wake up? i want to know we tried and maybe we can slow it down this time
15.
at the crack of dawn we sail the lonely sea from goblin bay to wizard isle merchant ships will flee we carry on the pirate way across the lonely sea will we fear no privateer no siren vexes we we care not what laws we do forsake but on the lonely sea we keep all that we take we know not what vicious end we'll meet but on the lonely sea we die before defeat at first light of dawn we sail the lonely sea from zeel flats to porto bay we are truly free at self-haven we chart our course and pay a small advance for tomorrow we may meet our end tonight we drink and dance we care not what laws we freely break but on the lonely sea we keep all that we take we know not what ghastly end we'll meet but on the lonely sea we die before defeat we care not what laws we freely break but on the lonely sea we keep all that we take we know not what ghastly end we'll meet but on the lonely sea we die before defeat yes on the lonely sea we die before defeat
16.
full fathom five thy father lies; of his bones are coral made; those are pearls that were his eyes: nothing of him that doth fade, but doth suffer a sea-change into something rich and strange. sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell: ding-dong ding-dong, bell
