Hold out your palm, catch the lies you’re offered.

Close your eyes,
Blink to the tune of the city street,
It lay below you,
The bustle is smothering,
Alas, I cannot think of,
Where we head now,
Where we head now,
Are we dead now?

Open your eyes,
Hold out your palm, catch the lies you’re offered,
They tumble freely,
So unstoppable,
Alas, you cannot catch them,
Do you have faith now,
Do you have faith now,
Are you safe now?

If I close my eyes I see the same images,
Projecting into my eyelids from my mind,
When I open them, I seem to miss,
These pictures every time.

If you take them from me,
If you steal them from me,
I would be happy,
Can you even see?

I am not a robot,
I may not care a lot,
Can you hear the gunshot?
Just leave me here to rot.

Silence screaming,
Sadness beaming,
A lack of meaning,
A lack of feeling.

Paint my heartbreak,
Sketch this broken mind,
I am nothing, nothing,
Blame it on me.

No meaning.
No screaming.
No feeling.
No needing.
No kneeling.
No seething.
No pleading.
Only bleeding.
