Uncontrollable Hunger

I crave a different kind of hunger,
it’s uncontrollable.

It’s messing with me, it’s messing with my mind.
It’s essential to my being.

I can't seem to get a grip on it.

Hello, I am, thirst, hunger.
I am, all those suppressed thoughts

I am the universe inside your eyes,
where the moon and stars hide.

You have worlds inside of you,
all the places I want to see.

Sometimes I feel like I can't reach them.
And sometimes I dream,

One day you tell yourself it will happen
whatever it is...

Cause all this right now
Is not filling me,

Not at all.
