I'm a dumb teen boy I eat sticks and rocks and mud I dont care about the government and I really need a hug I feel stupid (stupid) ugly (ugly) Pretend it doesnt bother me I'm not very strong but I'll fuck you up if you're mean to bugs It's getting cold down here underneath the weather I skipped class to sit with you I really like your spotty sweater if ladybugs are girls How do you make kids together What's it like in a female world I bet it's just so much better I just turned fourteen and I think this year I'm gonna be mean Don't mess with me I’m a big boy now and I'm very scary I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate Don't message me cause I wont reply, I wanna make u cry Ain't that how its s’posed to be? Though it isn’t me Boys will be bugs right? I'm a dumb teen boy All I wanna do is quit My mum told me that she's worried and I couldn't give a shit I have friends who understand me Their names are spider, beetle, bee They don’t say much but They have always listened to me The other boys at school think it's cool to hate your parents But they’re lying all the time The bugs advised that I should let 'em and if you wanna cry make sure that they never see it or even better yet block it out and never feel it I just turned fourteen and I think I know everything Don't mess with me I'm a big boy now and I'm very scary I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate Don't message me cause I won't reply, I wanna make you cry Ain't that how it's s’posed to be? Though it isn’t me Boys will be bugs right? I just turned fourteen and I think this year I'm gonna be mean (Just turned fourteen and I think this year I'm gonna be mean) Just turned fourteen and I think I know everything (Just turned fourteen and I think the world revolves around me) Don't mess with me I'm a big boy now and I'm very scary I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate Don't message me cause I won't reply, I wanna make you cry Ain't that how it's s’posed to be? Though it isn’t me Boys will be bugs right?

Sometimes I feel like I wanna go back To a time before my mind turned black I miss the way it was When instead of just my gooey brains all that melted was popsicles and the rain just pelted down Down on me Make me into more than a goner Perhaps a little bit stronger Thicker skin, less needy And maybe to not bruise so damn easily, but you can’t And I won’t I want you to help keep me from growing older Just let me snot on your shoulder when all that I’m thinking about is her Give me everything you got, don’t need drugs ‘cause I can already feel my head rot And it won’t stop It won’t stop, it won’t stop, it won’t stop, it won’t stop Please slow down, please slow down Make it all slow down, make it all slow down

about

Welcome to 2/5 of the Animal Kingdom mixtape.
Typically Comet moths aren't able to eat or drink, and die within just a few days, but Animal Kingdom's Comet is different.
On Venus Comet moths live full lives, but our Comet became trapped in a meteor when it swept through Venus' atmosphere and hurtled towards earth. Landing in a forest near a city, Comet ventured into the streets to find anything she could drink to stay alive in this new realm.
Strangely she was drawn exclusively to strawberry soda, and she would fly into vending machines to steal sips.
She has now settled into the forest, where she has assumed a motherly role to the animals there, diffusing tensions with her gentle manner and ensuring everyone is comfortable and happy. She's also the only one in the group who can read and understand human language from her experiences in the city, so this comes in handy whenever the animals need to venture into the urban unknown.
