Damages

Past this is more

of the same thing.

 

Domination of the passive,

aggressive and blind.

All of the submissive,

find their place and quietly

die.

 

Isn’t this the same shit it was?

Essential problems don’t just go away.

Don’t matter the birth or the cause;

we’re all living this way

now.

 

Their wars are the same

wars they were before,

for patience is lacking

and the means to destroy

just seems so easy.

 

Have you noticed

that justice is only an ideal?

People don’t live by rules,

they do whatever they feel

and they know.

We all know how to kill,

and we’ve been taught it’s wrong

by thieves and murderers.

How long will we let it go on?

 

If white is right – I’ll be black

and all shades of grey.

Contrary to your belief

is where you’ll find me.

In this real life

it becomes so fucking obvious,

most of the time

it’s our heads that they’re fucking with.

Sucks you in ’til you don’t care

about anything anymore,

than your clothes and your car,

you’ve been pimped

– you’re a whore!

 

The independence of the individual

is dead.

You must consume with the others,

or be consumed by them.

It is the same thing,

yet we’re so civilized.

With what we know

we’ve grown desensitized,

to the game that’s played

at our expense.

Doesn’t make any sense

to me.

  1. I particularly like the last lines “It is the same thing, yet we’re so civilized. With what we know we’ve grown desensitized, to the game that’s played at our expense.” Sadly, too true.

    I’m really loving your stuff!
