The Unknown – the video

what you don’t know about me
will contribute to your failure
to surpass me
such history that you refuse to see
that directs my steps
toward victory
underestimating me
attributing my dreams to simple lunacy
chalking up my passions
to irrationality
while you duck and dodge
how envious of me
your spirit light must be
to thrust upon me
such a false prophecy

what you don’t know
about me
is that i rise from the flames
better equipped
ready to use my intelligence as a whip
slice through the illusion
of being blissfully free
drugged and alienated
trapped by tv
no more for me
i seek the knowledge
of those who came before
forcing the line forward
struggling against the downpressors
putting down the stones
that my feet now tread upon
is what you don’t know
about me

i can look beyond the veil
and see shapes in the firelight
ball up my fists and
hold my own in a fair fight
i can stand in the sunshine and
roam through the night
i put my heart on my sleeve
and guard it
you could write a book
you see
with what you don’t know
about me

and why should you care to know
the thoughts in my head
the unspeakable injustices
that set my teeth right on edge
the unquenchable thirst
of who
important could they be?
these little things
that you don’t know
about me
