Stop wishing and start living
The world isn’t so cruel
People aren’t so unforgiving
Rely on heavy drinking
To escape your problems
Without so much as thinking
As what causes your pain
Just run to the door
Your attempts die in vein
Don’t say that you’re an open mind
You don’t know who you are
You’re not one of a kind
Shut up for once in your life
Let everyone else speak
Let them all use the knife
That you claim makes you cut
You complain about humanity
You know it all with your eyes shut
Ten thousand voices all speaking
Nobody hears everyone else
Just ten thousand cracks leaking
But what do I know
I’m but one single person
Without anything to show
Except these symbols on paper
That will pass through your head
Like an unnoticed vapor
