"Grow up with me

Let’s run in fields and fear the dark together
fall off swings and burn special things
and both play outside in bad weather

Let’s eat badly
let’s watch adults drink wine and laugh at their idiocy

"Grow up with me

Let’s run in fields and fear the dark together
fall off swings and burn special things
and both play outside in bad weather

Let’s eat badly
let’s watch adults drink wine and laugh at their idiocy
let’s sit in the back of the car,
making eye contact with strangers driving past
making them uncomfortable
not caring, not swearing, don’t fuck

Let’s both reclaim our superpowers
the ones we all have and lose with our milk teeth
the ability not to fear social awkwardness
to panic when locked in the cellar
still sure there’s something down there
and while picking from pillows each feather
let’s both stay away from the edge of the bed
forcing us closer together

Let’s sit in public, with ice cream all over both our faces
sticking our tongues out at passers by
let’s cry
let’s swim
let’s everything

Let’s not find it funny lest someone falls over
classical music is boring
poetry baffles us both
there’s nothing that’s said is what’s meant
plays are long, tiresome, sullen and filled
with hours that could be spent rolling down hills
and grazing our knees on cement

Let’s hear stories and both lose our innocence
learn about parents and forgiveness
death and morality
kindness and art
thus losing both of our innocent hearts
but at least we won’t do it apart

Grow up with me"

"I'd like to share a revelation I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with their surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, You move to an area and you multiply... and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we … are the cure."

"Of all the joys on earth, few compare to the crowning glory of achieving against the odds, succeeding in the face of peril, or triumphing over adversity.

Wouldn't you say?

Yet in every such case, without exception, the poor odds, the peril, and the adversity must come first."

"As I glanced upon all of the high-rises in the city, all of the light poles along the street, theres a faint reflection of light upon the glass lens' of all the cameras, I thought, "Freedom looks funny nowadays."

"One finds that there is really nowhere else to start: we have to begin with the human capacity for work, with the famous concept of creativity - already bastardized by fashion of course - to understand that this is a concept of art in which all can participate, whereby
every human being must be an artist. If we want to achieve a different society where the principle of money operates equitibly, if we want to abolish the power money has developed over people historically, and position money in relationship to freedom,
equality and fraternity - in other words, develop a functional view of the interaction between the three great strata or spheres of social forces: the spiritual life, the rights life and the economic life - then we must elaborate a concept of culture and a concept of
art where very person must be an artist in this realm of social sculpture or social art or social architecture - nevermind what terms you use."

"To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."
