Bedraggled threads
Befuddled head
Easily led to a tangled web of lies and spin
Despising gin a trembling hand will rise again
The resumption of passive consumption brings a massive reduction in the function and form of production
Slumping in corners
Surrounded by screens blinking warnings to conform to dreams boring and lean
What does it mean to be alive and thriving if inside your despising your life
Always fearing reprisals from family and friends concerned for your survival while you without rival or equal descend into repeated sequels of arrogance and vanity, mediocre mundanity
Constrained by your freedoms
Where is your inner sanctuary
Material insanity
Chasing crazes the inanity of damaging little phrases that were trained to say
Nothing ever changes its always been this way
But I’m starting a new day
Getting hyped to the rhythm
Making the clean decision
A practical proposition for living
Above all I will be giving
Respectful for the living and the dead
Not easily led or spoon fed opinions or points of view
I’ll challenge myself to regroup and renew
Surrender to the skies and in them rise
A new sense of freedom found in courage and release
Escaping gravity
In my inner sanctuary
