Mad Ramblings of a Rambling Madman
The human mind is the ugliest thing to behold
without the heart to protect where you find a soul
so the lie they tell you dictates you lose your will
close your eyes open wide and swallow this pill
the matrix isnt real or these things you feel
you never could fly and these chains are steel
breakin free is not an option so forget the logic
tell the cop that beats you down to PLEASE stop it
dont forget your p's and q's and be quiet
and healthcare says if you broke it you buy it
Ironic how the trap became a trap
lost tryin to leave, conspiracies about the map
wavin as your father leaves to fight a war
mommys got a bottle and shes lyin on the floor
the lights from the tube flash on a face wet with fear
man on t.v. smiling while hes grippin on a beer
the state comes to take away and hardly to return
when they do return home more reason for concern
the school system said no child left behind
half of us no longer children inside our minds
fifteen going on twenty with a system of restraints
leash holders never listen they no longer hear complaints
now the green numbs the pain that the soul is forced to hold
all for some green paper with a number you can fold
Good at Playing Pretend for J
You feel nothing so ill pretend,
Pretend I don’t feel anything too.
You smile the way you do,
I’ll pretend I have no butterflies.
You look at me the way you do
I’ll pretend my heart didn't skip a beat
Your trying to win her over
I’ll pretend im the supportive friend
I’ll pretend im not hurting inside
I’m just a friend
I’ll pretend to not want more.
I’ll pretend and since I convinced you.
I’ll pretend I believe my lies too.
