Yellow lights, white lights! They dazzle me, they are
All that I can see, as I walk unseeing the faces passing by
As I simply walk, walk lost
Lost in thoughts of you, of us, of those promises
Of those memories imaginary we shelved into our hearts
Let’s for once let go of our deceptions and talk straight
Talk through the fire, let’s face it
Let’s peel off layers of lies one by one and shake off that
Hideous smile we wear pretending everything’s alright;
Loud horns! I can hear not. Screams of anguish
Yours and mine echo inside my walls
I wish I could press the mute button and forget all
But the hollow voices keep ranting, chanting
Like a tribal song, like they know of some inevitable doom
Can’t we just speak the truth for once and not think
Of consequences and status quo?
You say things have changed, we have moved on
Oh really, then why this pretense? Be truthful!
Screeches of trouble invade my walls
Those walls I built when you left
So that no can see how the insides are so hollow
Or even glimpse the shattered pieces still breathing inside
I walk, walk into blankness and feel each wound afresh
And yet I stand strong, no regrets, I learnt from you
From us, knowledge does count right?
If only you’d be normal and talk, really talk for once
I can let go of this façade and be free
What’s this? Blood? Am I outstretched on the road?
When did that happen? Ah yes, the lights, the horn, the screech
Makes sense, makes me laugh- No mirth.
I guess we wouldn’t get to talk after all
Why, is that you standing there?
Is that real worry on your face or the regular pretense?
We never really got the chance to clear it out after all
Watch me die O Friend! Be free, no more charades
Watch me walk into the blankness, unto my liberation.
