Thoughts of Another

Happiness is just a teardrop away

At least that's what they say

I don't believe them

Because with each tear drop

Happiness becomes further away

And these…these are thoughts of another

I will fight the last battle

With my head held high

Knowing that for my country

I must one day die

That's what they told me, instilled in me

And these…these are thoughts of another

I want to know, I want to know so much!

And to you, it's so little.

Local news

Town sales

But to me it means the world!

To know what happens outside these barbed wires that you've condemned me to

But you can't even let me have that.

And these…these are thoughts of another

I want to help

No, something inside me wants to help

I don't

I know that my sole purpose here is to cause you pain and misery

You deserve that, don't you?

That's how the world shall be cleansed from the likes of you

Although there's something not right in it all

Is that my conscience telling me?

And these…these are thoughts of another

What differentiates us so that we cannot bond?

That we cannot show compassion?

That nothing can ever, ever, let us show that we are the same

Somehow

Some way

And these…these are thoughts joined together.
