Treasure Island

Thomas Shelton

(10/24/1989 / Newport RI)

Temporary


It's hard to understand
This life is more than just pain
Trials that test our temperament

Our minds are collective
Despite not being collected

We are separate lengths of wire
Trying to connect ourselves together

We are animals feasting like cannibals
Feeding on this canvas of the tangible

Heartbreak, heartache,
Rain, shine, and earthquake
It's only temporary

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
