lets rewind to the fork in the paths
and take the path of fury,
down the road of wrath
and drown ourselves in the booze and the drugs
but those old memories still leavin us bugged
reconciliation seems like the best idea
but when you get there you can't believe what you're seein
you let go of all the anger and rage
let the sadness out of the diary page after page
you let them know how you got emotionally burnt
but in the process you end up feelin physical hurt
and you're left there trying you best not to cry
and its on the ground that you start to see love as a lie
a new persona has taken over the place
a scarf to hide the bruises
a dark scowl on your face
to ward others off from the pain,
you do something others would think is insane
you'd open a booth
let them know the whole ugly truth
but there's still one last bridge left to burn
and after that the last lesson is finally learned
they say the honesty just makes you a jerk
but in the end, you feel you gotta go with what works
so now there's only honest rage in the tank
but don't call it being honest, call it just bein Frank.
that. was awesome.
thanks dude , though honestly I'm wondering if anyone is gonna pick up on the whole "call it just bein Frank" double entendre I threw in at the end.
So is this some kinda "all in his head" thing, or is it all these guys started out kinda the same and ended up going different paths because of the girls they met?
the worst part is, I just thought up a better rhyme for the second to last line
Good. Good. Let the hate flow through you.
That blew my mind...
I guess this shows that we can end up as a completely different person, depending on how we face the obstacles life throws at us. One path may lead us to becoming someone like Steve, happy as a clam with the woman he loves. Another path may lead us to becoming someone like Frank, hating the world but still remaining awesome.
In the end, either ending doesn't seem too bad.
Hmmm.... this is an interesting turn of events.
This may be one huge "Fight Club"-esque, multiple personality, mind-bending, story of a boy and his explorations of possible life choices.
You should write a play. "Cheer Up Emo Kid: The Musical"
Behind every man's great decision there is a woman.
Except for Phil. There are dudes behind him.
P.S. So wait, does replying only work for members now?
Excuse me for a minute while I go pick up the pieces of my mind that you just blew into a million pieces.
This may take a while.
I quite liked the first ending over the second ending, though it makes sense that the second ending would start off the whole series. I guess your girlfriend can really change the course of your life.
actually if you notice the first "Panel" rewinds back to the initial reading which indicates this is a completely different path in the last one being how Steve and Sue became how they are today, and this one as to how our oh so lovable Frank became who he is.
Now I see where this is going...
omg i'll never trust u again i bet this is all a huge inception with alter ego personas and shit
Yeah, love the last line. You totally told the story of Frank
So am I the only one who thought Paths was about Zeke? I'm calling Paths will take the Path of Denial next.
i READ THIS AS i'M LISTENING TO Thnks Fr Th Mmrs BY Fall Out boy
Well that was unexpected, I thought it was all over in part 3. Though I don't know where this is all gonna end up, keep it coming Enzo!
ID think reply works for anyone currently.
I could be wrong but whatevvs
Oh man... I can't wait to see where this goes next.....
Been following your comic since the twins bit, after my brother linked the Dog story.
I kept the bookmark even after hiatus, overjoyed when it came back.
I love your work. And oh man this gonna be good.
I'm completely addicted, your stuff is great. I've been reading these since 2009/2010, I've read all of them. I particularly liked this one, pretty deep. The Steve and Frank thing is brilliant I commend you.
