Taken from “Better Than Gold”

"I’ve been learning here how to grow larger
than the monsters alive in my dreams;
swinging a crow bar
out of my whistle,
grand pianos out of my rust,
I shot typewriter keys out of cannons I keep
aimed at the bandits alive in my trust.”

…While you say
That every time you pay
You were broke because
Your love has got away

You’re the one
That fires off your gun
Then catches all the fire
When you’re done…


Vance Joy — “Riptide”

"The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest. It becomes
The thronèd monarch better than his crown…”

"When tragedies like these deaths happen to celebrities, they should be a wake-up call for the rest of us. If someone who has everything going for them can be so horribly enslaved to what they know could kill them, imagine what it’s like for the average addict. Addiction is bigger than class, race, religion, or any other factor that one might hope would reduce its captive hold. Succumbing to it isn’t selfish. It’s horribly sad and extremely difficult to prevent, even though it is, in theory, preventable. The way we talk about a celebrity who ODs says a lot about the way we think about people who are struggling around us. It’s time we tried to understand struggles we don’t endure ourselves. It’s called empathy, and we could all use a lot more of it."

…Don’t let her know that your feelings aren’t for fun
Don’t let her know that your feelings aren’t for everyone
Don’t let her be your favorite telephone
Don’t let her see that you’d rather sleep alone…
