i’ll stay awake, ’cause the dark’s not taking prisoners tonight.
IMG_6802
why am i not scared in the morning? i don’t hear those voices calling. i must have kicked them out…
IMG_6806
i’m insignificant.
IMG_6795
you think twice about your life. it probably happens at night, right?
IMG_6745
am i the only one i know waging my wars behind my face and above my throat? shadows will scream that i’m alone.
IMG_6943
behind my eyelids are islands of violence.
IMG_6778
life has a hopeful undertone.
IMG_6775
and since we know that dreams are dead, and life turns plans up on their head, i will plan to be a bum, so i just might become someone.
IMG_6879
sometimes quiet is violent.
IMG_6872
i’m forced to deal with what i feel, there is no distraction to mask what is real. 
IMG_6777
i find over the course of our human existence, one thing consists of consistence. and it’s that we’re all battling fear. oh dear, i don’t know if we know why we’re here.
IMG_6743
i’m semi-automatic. my prayer’s schizophrenic.
IMG_6750
i do not know why i would go in front of you and hide my soul, ’cause you’re the only one who knows it. 
IMG_6790
don’t wanna call you in the night time. don’t wanna give you all my pieces. don’t wanna hand you all my trouble. don’t wanna give you all my demons. you’ll have to watch me struggle from several rooms away. but tonight, i’ll need you to stay.
IMG_6870
i’ll never be what you see inside. you say i’m not alone, but i am petrified.  
IMG_6746
i can feel your breath. i can feel my death. i want to know you. i want to see. i want to say hello.

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA: IMPLICIT DEMAND FOR PROOF (21 Pilots, PT. 1)

the soundtrack to my three months of living in Costa Rica has been almost exclusively, the 4 twenty one pilots’ albums: self-titled, vessel, blurryface, and trench. this upcoming 4-part photo series will feature captions with their lyrics describing an even deeper contextualization of my overall pure vida experience.
IMG_6942
reign down and destroy me
IMG_6936
i’ll try to delay what you make of my life. but i don’t want your way. i want mine.
IMG_6926
you are tired. you are hurt. a moth ate through your favorite shirt. and all your friends, they fertilize the ground you walk. lose your mind.
IMG_6925
i’ve been traveling in the deserts of my mind.
IMG_6923
living like a ghost, you walk by everyone you know. you say that you’re fine, but you have lost your sway and glow.
IMG_6922
then the wages of war will start inside my head with my counterpart.
IMG_6896
no one really knows his mind and no one knows behind his eyes.
IMG_6895
we get colder as we grow older. we will walk so much slower.
IMG_6898
i’m not sure i want to give you tools that can destroy my heart.
IMG_6892
he wakes up early today, throws on a mask that will alter his face. nobody knows his real name…
IMG_6901
he thinks that faith might be dead. nothing kills a man faster than his own head. 
IMG_6900
nobody knows he’s alive.
IMG_6920
i barely feel a smile deep inside me. 
IMG_6894
i began to understand why god died.
IMG_6903
the air begins to feel a little thin, as we’re waiting for the morning to begin.
IMG_6890
i wanna fall inside your ghost and fill up every hole inside my mind. and i want everyone to know that i am half a soul divided. 
IMG_6889
look in the mirror and ask your soul if you’re alright. 
IMG_6888
put on the glitter that your soul hides behind.
IMG_6887
all we are is an isle of flightless birds. 
IMG_6886
please don’t think about why you can’t sleep in the evening.
IMG_6885
please don’t be afraid of what your soul is really thinking.
IMG_6884
how frustrating and so degrading, his time we’re wasting, as time will fly by and the sky will cry as light is fading…

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA 🇨🇷: RIDE

I just wanna stay in the sun where I find
I know it’s hard sometimes
Pieces of peace in the sun’s peace of mind
I know it’s hard sometimes
Yeah, I think about the end just way too much
But it’s fun to fantasize
All my enemies who wouldn’t wish who I was
But it’s fun to fantasize

Oh, oh
I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Oh, I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride
