Empty Head

by †JustAri†   Jul 18, 2005

Never hearing answers to any of my why's
"I'm sorry" is so fake when you HAVE to apologize
Wanting to be secure in a world without inner gravity
Is it so much to just be real and have a dream?

Shackled to my feet are two chances each
All to use wisely or to form defeat
To cause my fall just because I didn't know
Because I didn't stop to think of the places I could go

Deaf to the advice because I could "do it on my own"
I harbored motivation to defy just because I was "grown"
Just a shimmer of the eye of how idiotic I am
And how fast I can sink when I thought I found land

A tan-line of knowledge ringing round my brain
The rest is cooked with ignorance and is vain
Wisdom has died and so has the mind
Bury it deep, this empty head of mine...
