“Steven,” I said, “there’s a part of me that scares me.”
“We’ve all got secrets, they make us who we are,” he frowned, turning his eyes down.
There we stood a moment as I pulled my jacket tighter,
In the moon we saw our breath, never had I seen it brighter.
And he smiled.
So I smiled.
He said, “David Foster Wallace once said all of this is water,
so you’ve got to learn to swim or you’ll just sink to the bottom.
The glass in this aquarium is less of a container
than the cage we build around ourselves before we see the danger.”
It’s like he read my mind.

Blurring all the lines, quiet all the time.
When you meet somebody and the fear grabs hold,
You gotta grab on and grab tight and never let go.
Build a box to keep your whole life in, to pass on to your kids.
You think you get it, but you don’t.
It’s true we leave our hearts at home.
But there are other ways to know
Are you really happy?

Happiness isn’t settling for less than what we need.
We’re trained to be unsatisfied with every drop we bleed.
So save a smile for the rest of us.
