Open my eyes to blindness
For only the blind truly see
I must bleed constantly to continue
Good health in no legacy.
Listening for the silence
Of only in quite can music be found
I must sob in my soul quietly
And never make a sound.
Shut myself out for understanding
Only in oblivion can life be understood
I must hide my face to be seen
There is no life outside of this hood.
Hate it all to love it
For I must see contrast to admire
All the world's in black and white
And light to bring me out of this mire.
Shutting you out to bring you in close
I must observe to see if it's worth it
And I hate the world and all in it
Though I love you the most in this pit.
