I, have not the clues to see it all
But some how I should have seen the coming fall
Give me no more chances, no point if I can’t understand
I will see or stay blind, no matter I'm a stupid man

Heaven knows I can’t see past present tense
My ignorance measured is so immense
Cannot tell if I’m trapped or if I’m free
Either way it’s been one strange night for me

Oh I, I don't understand that pensive frown
What was I thinking, did I look like I could wear a crown
Not like they are much better, they just know best on how to try
Silence, default, unworthy, to hold back is to wish to die

In mind I'm brave, the rest outs me as a fool
It always betrays me, epsilon minor caste and tool
Put in a false smile, and put all my friends at ease
Fuck my soul for lying, my answers are the ones that please

Give and go, for friendship or for romance
Not guaranteed just because I’m a sycophant
Give to them, to hell with what I want or need
Damn it all I know this is an open bleed

Heaven knows I can’t see past present tense
My ignorance measured is so immense
Cannot tell if I’m trapped or if I’m free
Either way it’s been one strange night for me

Given, gotten, did so thrice
Want my own stage, wouldn't that be nice?
Put on a face it’s time for a show
Their amusing play, how could I know?
Drifting, swaying, futile praying
Does it mean that I’ll be staying?
Buried down while looking in the face of friends
I can’t see how I can make it end!

Oh I, not sure how to see past my clouds
It's all made of their dreams, I’d have to tear all my shrouds
But I’ll miss past today, I want to move but I must stay
Can’t see what will happen, their interests are in the way

Never know how I can see what’s wrong
Find my truth, find my way without a song
But I’m too dumb to find out just what my trouble needs
But so are they, bullshit with no solid leads

Heaven knows I can’t see past present tense
My ignorance measured is so immense
Cannot tell if I’m trapped or if I’m free
Either way it’s been one strange night for me


NOTES: Been tinkering with this for years, but the theme is the same. It's a dissatisfaction with life and having to go through the motions for everyone else's sake (with a reference or two to Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' thrown in). Not really metal enough, but too intelligent and subtle to be emo. Would fit best with power or symphonic metal.
