Forever the Boy King, the arc is not in the character, but in the world that changes while the character does not.
I met this girl in New York who was better at all the things I’m great at, and then I came home
I remember the night princess Diana died, CNN breaking the tragedy, and it seemed we were waiting after for the next one to strike. And years later I was a freshmen in college and a girl said as we were leaving my health class that a plane had crashed in New York and I got back to my dorm room in time to see the first tower fall.
You don’t drink poison to kill your enemy
If I have a son I hope he’s a better king than I.
No sir, I am not in the lavender haze
A horizon so flat it curves.
The first time I lived briefly in New York there was a guy dressed as Jesus giving out free hugs in union square when I arrived and it creeped me out and months later it didn’t and when I ran into him at b - bar months later before I was about to leave I told him that story and that he no longer freaked me out and that he was a symbol of the growth I’d just gone through but he didn’t understand because he was high on coke it seemed and just wanted to keep saying yeah over and over yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah and that’s what I think of when I think of LA: LES in 2005
