Eye. Runny. <== Entitled #I

Inspired was the choice
Moved by the diamonds in my veins
That I should be that which remains
I ignored sound advice
Exploited innocent sacrifice
Bought guards to protect my things and my life
So I could feel more safe

My motives went all askew
Haunting all I accrued
Kissing up to the room with a view
All so I could
Keep my take
I don't belong left in no lurch or in no wake

So I blazed a path into a new blight
Worried figures simply became trite
When viewed from shadows of this ancient fight
Tacitly agreeing that might makes right

I grew a bored and flaky love
Threw off restraint and civil glove
From anyone took anything gotten hold of
All so I could
Burn a page
All so I could deflect some blame

Hey, more or less we’re the same
As we've both made it our aim
To whitewash the picture and sell the frame … … ...

And on our codependent names
I know our fear, that our livestock might betray
And rise up to demand a different game
Crocodile tears when fire keeps them tame
And should you ask if we are doomed to the same
If we critique, question, or cautiously say
We think we'd be better moving other ways
We're just children of god what more can I say?
Come on and prey
Every day
Come on and prey
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Unconscious to our disgrace are we
When we drown the good in our neighborhoods
From sea to poison sea
So we pray
Distraction, pave the way
To say, “So what?!”
