Silent World of Noise - 2004

I am silence in this world of noise,

destined to falter should I lose my poise.

I've grown accustomed to adversity,

to the world and all its fallacy.

My mind, bound by the constraints of

the unimaginable.

The promise of hope and freedom to

all, means nothing to those on the other

side of the prison wall.

Mysteries and conspiracies,

the unexplained and entertained,

determined to lay waste to it all.

I am silence in this world of noise,

my voice shackled by reality.

Am I alone in my quest?

Have I really given it my best?

From afar I see the road not taken

and I rue the decision I made.

I am noise in my world of silence.

I do what I want, say what I want,

I go where I want and live like I want.

I am me and no one else, alive and

well, not dying from some DISEASE.

I am noise in my world of silence,

here I live forever, but I'm not immortal.

Here my life seems worth something

and I don't fall prey to so called,

"friendship" or gullibility.

A different time and a different place,

yet it all stays the same.

I open my heart thinking it's different

now, only to get hurt again.

I was so blind, so incredibly blind, so

for now, I'll stay within my silent world of

noise, safe from the sycophantic suck-ups.

Safe from the leaches of love and

emotion.

Right here and right now I am king,

in my silent world of noise.
