329 – Family System

Family System

Wanna know how I got these scars?

Any of a thousand hurts.

My father was a drinker and a fiend. The sharks

carved up my wife. It’s a lie either way. 

Why so serious? God

in or out of the machine. Some men

just want to watch the world burn.

We’re destined to do this forever,

you and I.
