"Systems of Down"(Greedy Soul)

Poetry By: RaisinGirl

there was so much inspiration, especially musically, when I wrote this....it's about taking back power, basically, whether it be in the shadows or in the light, and abondoning the abandoner, or user, instead of playing the fool yourself....I could have titled it many different ways, but I went with the one above.....btw, it has nothing to do with the band SOAD(I don't like them)..but it worked anyway....

you took me for your fool,

in your hands, I'd play the tool,

but you're needing something better,

than just broken pieces, glued together...

you took me for granted,

leaving all my worth abandoned,

craving is me, and how greedy are you?,

you should've known you'd eventually lose...

I am not your sponsor,

leave the breach by the door,

you even stole from your own breed,

converting systems of down, and deceit...

into fire and desolation,

above the sky, a constellation,

but I hear your star's not gonna fall,

to be the one without the light, and you stall...

I shine like a painter's pen,

while you go hide within your den,

I will not cave, and I like what I now see,

the creed is ripped apart, and I now can breathe...

the time of the shadow,

is coming today, so I take a bow,

and I will take an arrow and shoot high,

before you know it, I'll soon claim all the light...

so get on with it, soul,

go play a different kinda role,

or I'll throw words in your big mouth,

don't you know the flesh have flown south...

get on with your mind,

and please stay out of my time,

the space between, is for a colder day,

as I drain the shallow waters, and fade into grey...
