drifting by aimlessly
heart torn to shreds day in day out
what is tearing me up
what is the source this angst?

still drifting aimlessly
turn to some sensi to make
meaning out of this went on
a journey to lala land.

open my eyes, look inwards
find answers buried deep within
clutch at straws, hold on to nothing
just a silhouette that is what I am to you.

what's that i see up ahead?
fiery lights,  fire show?
is it merriment over there?
flight of fancy, fantasy.

bombardment on my people
poor harmless souls no one
to fight for them, stand for them
dying in droves, like cattle.

send more men in, kill as many as you can
kill, kill, kill, be happy
this is what you know how to do best
maiming, destroying, terrorizing.

the light went out of our eyes ages ago
mirth, joyousness now up for sale
only the elite, the privileged few
can attain the lofty heights of fulfillment.
