The 8th House

Two hours left at the office
Clear your desk
Put your cup in the trash
Nothing left to do, too late to start something new
Killing time
Dodging the boss

Stop giving me busy work
If you think it’s so important, you do it
How much of my time do I owe you exactly?
When are we going to be even?
When is enough, enough?

Just a quick peek at Twitter on the work computer
Who’s watching?
Is someone keeping tabs?
Quick look over your shoulder
I’m not paranoid
*Cover the camera lens just to be sure*
Clear your browser history

ducking out early
Too late for lunch, too early for dinner
Late afternoon
Happy hour
Idle hours
warm sun glow before sunset

Margarita Time

Sitting in the back corner, people watching, people listening, eavesdropping
oh sh*t, I thought your name, now there you are
are you psychic or something?
quick, run to the bathroom
I can’t go
I’m backed up
My emotions are backed up
I need someone to talk to

Nice shoes, he has money
Nice dreads, how’s the trust fund holding up

Sizing people up

What can you tell without being told?
Read the room, bro

Just because you noticed something, doesn’t mean it’s true
Gathering evidence
Whispers and murmurs backed by evidence
The evidence suggests otherwise
Hmm … that’s suspicious
A little detective work on the side
I’m going to look that up when I get home, do a little research
Getting into other people’s business
Sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong
Morbid curiosity
Idle curiosity
My, my, look what I found
Well, looky what we have here


Mind your own business
The interrogation room is this way
She did it for the money
Let’s see how this all unfolds

Private information
Privileged information
Information that is deeply satisfying
Getting to the bottom of things
Solving a mystery

Hey, can I tell you something?
I’ve never told anyone this before
Something has been weighing on me
Why don’t you tell us what happened?
There’s something I need to get off my chest
You can confide in me
You can trust me
I feel so much better now that I told you
What a relief

Losing interest in life
The 5th house of Joy square the 8th house of Death
Suicidal feelings

Digging deeper to find reasons to be here
You’re here for a reason
Beyond life
Beyond death
Beyond sex
Giving yourself permission to be truly invested and interested in what you’re interested in
Your reason for being here
What is the mystery you’re trying to solve?
Who gives a sh*t?
Can this be over already?
I think I’m done here
Wtf am I doing here anyway? I don’t have to deal with this crap
I can leave any time, I have a choice
It’s not like anything I do matters anyway
If I can’t have what I really want, what am I even doing here?
What difference does it make?
I give up
~ I’m out ~

Don’t you want to see how it ends?
Everybody loves a good mystery
I’ll go make some popcorn

Let jealousy be your guide
Hey, Jealousy
Jealousy, as an indicator of life desires
Jealousy, as the indicator of what you really really really want that you don’t have
That burning, angry, seething feeling that is threatening to tear you apart?
Say hello to my little friend, Jealousy
Hey, she’s talking to you, she’s trying to tell you something
listen, like your life depended on it
this old thing? I only wear it when I don’t care how I look
that little bitch

Get what you want without taking from others
I want what you have

I want that
I want you

I want you, the right way
I want you, but I want you to want me too

Where do our desires meet
How can we please each other
please, please me
Sexual healing

I want you, the right way
— Marvin Gaye, I Want You

I want him to stop bothering me
I want her to leave me alone
Keep your hands to yourself
Take your hands off me
Stop sneaking into my phone
Don’t read my diary
Why don’t you respect my privacy?

You don’t own me
You can’t know all there is to know about me when I don’t even know it myself

I am infinite
YOU are infinite
Don’t let people put you in their stupid little boxes
Life after death
Life after life



infinity inifinitay infininininitaytaytaytay

Stop trying to make claims on me
No, you weren’t here first
I wasn’t either
Quit stalking me
Quit staring
Take a picture, why don’t ya? It’ll last longer
I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
I’ve got you under my thumb
I’ve got you under my skin
I’m begging you for mercy

You own nothing
You can’t take it with you
