I Did Something Truly Visionary

Cento after Irvine Welsh.

Along the way, our dreams crumbled.
It’s alright for some.
It’s just not enough for me.

Get a fucking life for yourself
and learn how to shag properly!!!

I’m thinking of records
and fresh paint on canvas.

We are all basically the same
and all we have is each other.

When all this is in your head
it has to come out into your life.
If it doesn’t, you get crushed.

I’m not going to get crushed.
