Ok, I know this is not a very active forum for stuff that is "too personal", but I really need to put these toughts somewhere. Im really unsure of showing this stuff to people I know, I guess I donīt trust them enough.. Altough I have (sort of) talked about this stuff alot. The thing is that I have been manic/depressed most my life and been sort of a Horrible Loner, and itīs hard to explain blaa blaa blaa...

Im just going to put HERE some of the Daniel Johnston inspired stuff that has been shooting out of my fingers for the last few days Smiley

I am actually going thru these events RIGHT (edit: NOW) in my life, and guess putting these up [anonymously] would be somewhat as encouraging as listening to Dans songs.

millions of Ideas just fill your head
and everyone of them comes out well ment
when feeling takes the place of thought instead
and everything you say comes out well said

when everyone you meet is a friend
and life is like a space without an end
now everywhere you go you see a smile
and laughter fills the moments all the while

when people say that you are very nice
and laugh with you at all of our lies
as music fills your hands now you can play
and finally someones asking you to stay

but you sometimes feel itīs too much to contain
and a fear comes flashing thru your brain
that life is still that lie
you told yourself yesterday

..I necessarily donīt crave for any analysis of the artistic values of these poems. English
is not my native language anyway Smiley

-thanks for having me

Some more poems and stuff from the past few weeks...


I get stronger
I get better
I get there
I get smarter
I get over
I get there


I guess it was just fun
yeah thats all it was
now its gone and done
so Iīll get back on the bus
I like to stay unknown

all I speak is weakness
thats all I can relate
Iīve become so loveless
that love just makes me hate

see me cursing everything
see me burn my finger
without love, everything is hard
without love, its just a false start


make love with money


everytime I try to do good
man I feel like a fool
I feel like a liar when I smile
buying organic food makes me wanna die
cos I donīt wanna be who I wanna be
lifes so much easier when its hard


no one told you cos no one knew
that you were lost just like them
but what we shared we gave away
and now Im tired


Iīll hang around in my reality
before I start to believe in something else
than as I know it


...and evil is such a weak force.


being high makes me wanna get higher
I feel so good I wanna feel fun
see me waving from my cloud
lets spend eternity


I ve been looking around for someone ilke me and I found myself


happy people do something


she sleeps in the river
I cant get to her
she sleeps in the river
with her eyes open to a god
I donīt believe in, does it matter?


Do Good

I lived a lie for so long
I always knew what was wrong
but I was scared of the consequence
but now I have my evidence

I lived a lie for so long
sung a oneman singalong
but past is the truth
and Im living proof

to do good
do good
you know you can

do good
do good
no need to make a stand

I think I need some free time
I think I need to think for a while
stop doing stuff I hate
quit quitting being great

do good
do good
like I know I can

be good
be good
like I know I am

Im sorry for my lack of sorry
sorry I really ainīt
I need to think about myself
in a different way

do good
do good
like I know I can

be good
be good
like I know I am

no need to collapse
just I wanna stay at home
leave myself alone
and go out for a while

do good
do good
like I know I can

be good
be good
like I know I am


Dr. Phil says: I want you to get exited about your life! (and then get lithium)


she was raped by her own dad and her sister too
woke in a burning bed and ran away from home
she took heroin with a hippy and then they had a baby
a few years later he jumped from a church and became a vegetable

I really love the way she moves twisting her wrists
her hair black and twists in it knots and theres paintings on her jeans
Its magick when she goes to space and tells me Im her sparedad
I told her Im a rapist too and she wrapped her arms around me

we went downstairs and listened to her parents old cassettes
we played with bunnies and our bodies they danced across the town
I told her that I want to cry but I donīt know how to stop
I lay there on her bed again and she let me give up.

she played me herself when she was five her heart was in a mirror
she told me how her mom kept wanting for her to be thinner
I asked her bout that sad manboy and she said I donīt know
I have her in my pocket now and on my headphones

she got him back from the war with fire in his eyes
and on his deathbed cried to her please forgive my eyes
their chidren all grownup and strong and little ones to come
donīt worry, donīt be scared I was forgiven by Mom


all those things I did I was a mess I guess
but myself I did impress



your so smart
donīt even care if they understand
that you know everything
about yourself

you need to know you can help them
make eveyone believe
and fill that need

you have words for everything
you have the right to everyone
they should build you a church
they should build you a trhrone
to spend your life alone


poor you poor you no one understands you


The saddest thing I ever did see
was a plastic bottle of vitamin C
made me feel poisoned and lazy


Real Love (doo wop)

nobodys got a love like we have
it is ours and itīs so much better than
anything youīve seen on TV
this loves real for  my girl and me

donīyou know, its not a song
donīt you know, its not a poem
donīt you know, its no show
itīs just my girl and me, real love


I am fighting a reality that is not my own. I know everything in it but donīt understand a thing. and if it makes me a clown then have your laughs.
I never needed anyone.. no one needed me.. I could have helped you.. you could have helped me and maybe you did.. but who helped me to hell.. it wasnīt me, I let it happen but yes it was me. but this time its no show just me in the audience.

Some more...


you wanna print it on a T-Shirt
Im wanna put it on my tombstone


afterlife doesnīt matter to me because Iīll be dead.


you fear what you dont understand
and you are afraid of everything


I have paid your taxes, just look at me


you laugh at me behind my back
and tell stories that paint me black

well I am not youre friend
all I do is pretend haha

my lifes a joke, my heads a mess
always looking for something to confess
but thanks for not letting me know
what you think of it, just might show


True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend
Don’t be sad, I know you will,
But don’t give up until
True love finds you in the end.
This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking will it find you
‘Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you
Unless you step out into the light?
But don’t give up until
True love finds you in the end.


iīve never been on a rope this thin
and i never neen beggin fo life
but if you have the attention
I have another confession
thanks but no!
some other time!


....these are not in (chrono)logical order... noticed I had copied one of Danīs lyrics in the folder also.. wonder why? : cheesy
