I'll never be a star
I'll never shine my light
And I'll tell myself
I'll say that its alright
I'll stay here in the dark
And the world will never see
All of this potential
That hides inside of me
You don't even see me
You look right past my face
Society has beat me down
Until I understand my place
But I don't need your pity
I don't need to be set free
Around me are the millions
Who don't know they're just like me
I held out my tongue and tasted metal
The drops on my face stung like a nettle
I opened my eyes and saw a splash of red
Were the clouds up in the sky filled with the dead?
I looked up and it was raining blood
I glanced back down at Martian mud
The grass was filled with an iron stench
I felt like a soldier trapped in a trench
One more time, I dared to see
what the cause of such bloodshed above me could be
There, up in the heavens, the Son of God lay
trying to clean up his spilt wine in dismay
I regret letting him fall
Letting him slip away and die
The guilt is mine
No One Can Hear
I'm screaming loud enough so no one can hear,
the breaking of my heart,
the cracking of my bones,
the drowning in my lungs,
the snapping of my sanity,
the madness in my thoughts,
the floods in my eyes,
the pain in my head.
I'm screaming loud enough
so no one can hear
a h u g
you would have deserved
a hug, at least
after taking off
They say that history repeats itself, crackling out the same old tune like a broken record, over and over again. Imprisoned by the powers that be and their static status quo.
But if that's the case, then why, time and time again, have we broken free? It is because change is but the record's needle jumping on to repeat the next tune on the same disc. We've been waiting for the scratched-up vinyl of space-time to be replaced for a while now.
