“Don’t believe the hype, don’t believe the signs they’ve sold you now…”
Run fast, run quick,
Don’t just stand there
And get caught up in my wit.
Run far, run wide.
You don’t want to witness
All the emotions I hold inside.
Pull away, break us apart.
If you don’t tear free,
I might just steal your heart.
Actions speak louder than words.
If you love me…
Delve into my soul, wash ashore on the surface of my brain, explore my mind, examine my heart, and leave it all better than when you came.
“Are you really here? Or am I dreaming? I can’t tell dreams from truth…If you want me, satisfy me…”
Materialize for me. Become the real that I really need.
“And I wanna be with you, if you wanna be with me…”
In the hope that I’ll be happy soon.
On all the pain that I’m compelled to hide from you.
To tell you, or anyone, that I really need to be held.
For a good friend to come and offer their help.
For a way to make the darkness into day
Inside of my head, wishing you’d come to my aid.
When we are children, the adults in our lives are in control of it. They tell us when and what to eat, what to where, decide where we live and go to school, even when we wake and sleep. As adults, we are fed a societally manufactured pipe dream of owning our destinies, determining our fate, being navigator of our journeys. But we wake up, sleep and plan leisure activities in accordance to work schedules. We behave in a manner to get ahead professionally and please others socially. We go through life either being controlled by others or by money. We do so thoughtlessly. And everyone’s alright with that.
