Handle the Hurt

Low altitude but I feel a heavy high,
it's cold and slows my mind into sleep
I close my eyes and watch the temperature rise,
the core is closer when I'm diggin down deep
I can breathe
in the cold air
hides heat

My skin's not thick but I'm thinkin I could handle the hurt
I've been numbed up to feel nothin now I know what it's worth
I would see the softer side so clear
if I could take a look at life through the fog of tears

So out of tune I disconnect from the rest,
the screamin silence makes me deaf as I need
cuz I can feel the beat the best
when I'm holding my heart to slow the song that I bleed
I can see
in the darkness
light sings

Well, I don't wanna complain about nothin
but at least somethin bad would still be somethin
pleasure can come with some pain but now reverse it
and I'll wear my bruise as a badge if I think I deserve it
I would see the softer side so clear if I could take a look at life through the fog--

My skin's not thick but I'm thinkin I could handle the hurt
I've been numbed up to feel nothin now I know what it's worth
I would see the softer side so clear
if I could take a look at life through the fog of tears

Marcus Eugene Boise, Idaho

Born a bold jumping spider, Marcus Eugene devoured his mother for the sake of life with a lute. However, the jury ruled it not an act of love for music, but of hatred for mothers--and sentenced him to be smushed between two Boise city buses. So, Marcus stole threads of Folk, Country, Blues, and Rock, spun a sleeping bag, and skipped town. Please contact local authorities if you've seen him. ... more
