Music to my eyes
Ears wide open.
Music to my eyes

You can’t hold on to the thrill

In the bad years you went back on your head
never trusting the way that you walk
take another book off the shelf
tell us what we haven’t read
In the dark days with a chip on your shoulder
I heard you whispered for rain
or a train
tell me why you are so lonely
do you really think you still owe her?
My car isn’t even “low” and I keep fucking my front bumper/fender liner up because people here are totally okay with their overinflated, under rotated, and half bald tires exploding on the freeway and then flying into the middle of my lane-giving me no alternative but to run them over and pray for the best. This is the 3rd time in a year now.
Utah, the state: please fix your streets, figure out a way to clear debris from the freeway regularly and in a timely manner. When you decide to just cut a huge chunk out of a road, don’t be lazy asses and put some warning signs up! And stop letting motorcycle cops hide behind bushes and trees, that’s just not fair.
Utah, the people: stop acting like you’re entitled to camp out in the passing lane-I don’t care if you’re going 100 mph, JUST FUCKING DON’T. And I don’t want to hear it, it’s not your job to police other cars on the road! Don’t crawl up other cars asses during heavy traffic! That’s how fender benders happen and I don’t want to spend Friday night on the shoulder of NB I-15 calling my insurance agent and fuming at you. Also if you’re going to cut me off to make your exit or so you can “win the freeway race” could you at least use your signal? Finally, lifted truck/SUV owners- stop babying your vehicles. They’ll be just fine using practically any parking lot entrance, they could literally hop the curb and run over the bushes and grass and come out just fine! Step on the gas a little and get out of the way.
