My Blog – Lyric Fire: Lost

All the things we want are the very things we refuse to give

It seems we learn not from being loved but hate

For we replicate that very state

of being

 

We have new ways to shut out life now

Our digital devices allow us to be passive and aggressive

The new way to say no is to ignore

We don’t talk we text

We don’t even touch when we have sex

We just click some keys and hope for the best

 

Life’s energy has been zapped out of us

Nothing means anything anymore

Relationships are just a big bore

Going through motions and lacking in passion

Not wanting to begin anything because we’re scared of it lasting

 

Why not escape to a fictitious world?

It’s so bright and colorful there

With the flip of a switch we can change the color of our hair

Be anyone we want to be

All for nothing or maybe a small fee

 

What’s funny is that when we don’t know identity

It makes us more loving, exciting and free

We care not that a battered soul is flickering behind the screen

It’s just a fantasy being

 

Who can blame us for wanting to escape?

Nothing is the way we want it to be

The lives we construct are never built to last

The time ticks away and future becomes past

So very fast

 

Maybe the best way to get back to the center of life is to leave

Visit different planetary ways of being

Shedding human skin can be very freeing

We’ve already detached from the essence of life anyway

 

Why not get totally lost?
