falling star

so you want to be praised
for the smallest of things
flaunting those symbols of
your slavery
trapped in the river
it flows against you as you swim
mocking those who you’ve tread on
for not being next to you
all those lies
all that cheating that you’ve done
still you insist
that you’re working for everyone
trying to maintain
this facade
is more than you can bear
relax your mind
release yourself
float on your personal
cloud nine

the light is fading
from the tunnel of your vision
your blinders
have been locked in place
still you insist
that you’re working for everyone
but none can hear you speak
your transmission is garbled
the silence that follows
is deafening
baby you’re a star
in your own theater of pain

so many excuses
so many tears do fall
but your personal paradise
seems to be worth it
after
all

you’re drowning in your misery
but no one feels your hurt
your smile is always
etched in stone
but your hatred lingers
a long time after
the thrill and shine is gone
all those lies
all that cheating that you’ve done
still you’re insisting
that you work for everyone

lose yourself
in the cover
of the blackest night there is
drift downriver
leave behind
the pieces of your dreams
