the new year: 2016 edition

growing older and watching the years go by is realising that my life has essentially gone from ‘happy new year’ in RENT to ‘the new year’ by death cab for cutie (and I hate it)

so this is the new year
and I don’t feel any different
the clanking of crystal
explosions off in the distance (in the distance)

so this is the new year
and I have no resolutions
for self-assigned penance
for problems with easy solutions

so everybody put your best suit or dress on
let’s make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
as thirty dialogs bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days
then I could travel just by folding a map
no more airplanes or speed trains or freeways
there’d be no distance that could hold us back

but it’s nice to know that listening to death cab is kind of bringing me back to reality (I find that my head isn’t in the clouds as much these days)

no more resolution setting by me this year because I get disappointed year on year with how I fail to achieve anything really

also it speaks volumes of my current state of mind given that I’m posting this at 0230 in the morning
