Rubber Band

Poem by: ShaunaLeigh

Summary

This is about being fed up with all of these rules and stupid things preventing us from living life properly. It's about finally just saying hey there's more of us than them let's do it and going ahead and living life, ignoring all of the restrictions.

Let’s push this as far as it can go
Don’t worry about what follows
These boundaries have to fall
Life has given us nothing
We will accept each consequence
As we run through every door
Smash each window of opportunity
Answer every call
We’ll push at these walls
Push with all our heart
As hard as we can
If it won’t break then it will bend
To our will, like a rubber band
 
We’re united
Against the world
My friends let us not stop
Charge through the city
And torch every building
Watch as they burn to the ground
Throw in our consciences
And every little twinge of guilt
I think we deserve some fun for once
And God knows if He agrees
Decades spent
No change- not a thing
Oh how I regret
Not starting this at the very beginning
By now we could’ve won
Found a way around every rule in the book
Or tore it page by page
 
Is there a point to this pointlessness?
Will boredom give us a reason?
Fed up of monotone voices
Mechanical movements
And ‘got to’ decisions
This is the start of history
We will march into it singing ‘we will rock you’
Rock you to the ground
 
Let’s push this as far as it can go
Don’t worry about what follows
These boundaries have to fall
Life has given us nothing
We will accept each consequence
As we run through every door
Smash each window of opportunity
Answer every call
We’ll push at these walls
Push with all our heart
As hard as we can
If it won’t break then it will bend
To our will, like a rubber band
 
Pull it back and let it go
Hope it strikes the first person to complain
‘Cause though it’s unacceptable
Would you rather sin or live a life of distain?
We are worthy
This is unfair
We gotta play dirty
What else is there?
Open your mouth
Scream long and loud
Let us all be heard for once
We need a reason- who are we pleasing?
Is there a guy watching us suffer with an immortal grin?
Dude we own you
We’re doing something about it
 
There is something blocking our way
A tall brick wall of rules and restrictions
We pound against it
Shattering bones
And hopes and dreams in the process
But our hearts are in the right place
(So it will bend)
Every beat it weakens
(It bends to our will)
It won’t take much longer
(Just keep it going)
Soon enough it will be too much
We might not be able to break it down
But it will bend
To our will, like a rubber band
