“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”

Im chillin in the back seat

Seeing where the driver takes me

Took a turn down memory lane

Knowing life was never the same

Those i hurt

Those i loved

Those i despised and yet still gave hugs

Take a breath 

Your not driving

Fall into the void

Instead of trying

To be backseat driving

Sometimes you have to kick back in the backseat. try not to think. definitely don't drive. just remember the world, even if it lies.
