Gravity will not keep my head out of the clouds57

Writer’s Block is what it will take58

To stop me from spreading The Truth59

I’m not a King of Anything60

I’m not asking for Sex With My Coffee61

And I have no Crystal Ball62

But I know Nothing Lasts Forever63

Know the Beauty of Uncertainty64

Know life was better in 199965

 

You don’t need a Kaleidoscope Heart66

To recognize you’ll never get to Heaven67

Through a Sea of Monsters68

    wow I think you just forged a new religion out of the debris of pop culture

      Thanks. New religions are always coming into existence. I think you can find it anywhere. Music could definitely be one of those places. Thanks for commenting.

    Okay, I’m officially jealous, Benjamin. How are you able to find the perfect song titles to craft such exquisite poetry? And in the space of a single day, no less! Fantastic work here, but then again, I expect no less from you.

    Thank you. Thank you.

    Truly original form you’re working with here, I love it. It’s something that can evolve past song titles, also.
