i need a meaning. i need a mission. i need a path. i need conviction. i need a life i’ve never had. i need much more good and much less bad.
the sun is shining but we stay inside. oh, but we go out at night. we stay in looking for a better life. oh, but we go out at night. we put up curtains, block out the light. oh, but we go out at night. and we stay in bed until we feel all right. oh, but we go out out at night.
“When I became convinced that the universe is natural, that all the ghosts and gods are myths, there entered into my brain, into my soul, into every drop of my blood the sense, the feeling, the joy of freedom. The walls of my prison crumbled and fell. The dungeon was flooded with light and all the bolts and bars and manacles became dust.”—Robert Green Ingersoll (via ageofreason)(via noitsprianka) (via quote-book)
“All of a sudden something seemed to snap inside of my head. It was just like i wasn’t anymore, like I’d just shriveled up and disappeared. And in my place there was nothing but a deep hole, a deep black hole…”—Jim Thompson, A Hell of a Woman [via negativepleasure] (via fecklesss)
