A great commotion,
passionate and often violent;
the way things go around here
almost every time.
And it’s no big surprise
to see the apathy inside
so many that I see
and even in my own life.
There might as well be not tomorrow,
if I can’t find a way through today.
There’s so much out there that I don’t know,
when there’s no more to learn, then I don’t want to be.
Won’t lay down,
be force fed,
by television – my decision
to live and learn outside the system,
find the wisdom we’ve been given.
Don’t want my destiny to be
persuaded by some cold – dead fuck.
So few find their way through,
this bloodthirsty, brain dead flock.
Surviving long enough to be yourself
is half the battle in the war.
To know the knowledge – seek the breath
and keep on living until death,
or ’til I ain’t learning no more.
