Poetry/Lyrics

Solitary Refinement By Ryan Pennington:

Sometimes I think my thoughts are hostage miles away
From everyone else I feel so twisted and lost
My mouth comes alive and I try to speak
But to enclosed minds my words are just an albatross

I'm tired of being told what to do by "experts"
Contrived and showered in lies, tearing down lives...
Physically confined and mentally defined
By weak minded people too indoctrinated to cross a line
So full of themselves they change their beliefs on a dime
Acting as if they know by majority but in truth they're so asinine

My heart is bled and lead to the floor
I give them blood and they still want more
Stalling my journey homeward bound
But where is my shelter marked down?
Does such a place exist outside my head
This map of life is too confound
I'm placed in circles being tossed around
But the wheels keep on turning in my stead

Tonight you made me feel like you could change the world
I reveled in your words and convincing smile
Tonight you made my world a better place
But I'm too addicted it only lasts awhile...

Tonight you'd change you said,
Tonight we'd mend this damaging world
Tonight we'd break the rules...
But tonight is already gone away

Tonight you'd change you said,
Tonight we'd mend this damaging world
Tonight we'd break the rules...
But tonight is already gone away

Sometimes I fake my words cause I have nothing to say
I'm too caught up in the next thing I'm trying to convey
My mouth comes alive and some truth I try to seek
The sun comes up and my vision is weak

The more I see the less I am certain
Waiting for rebirth of ignorance and innocence
So I take a spade and I dig my grave
I can no longer stand the candescence
My new world should be that of curtains and shades
I'll have no sun ruining my stormy days

Tonight you'd change you said,
Tonight we'd mend this damaging world
Tonight we'd break the rules...
But tonight is already gone away

Tonight you'd change you said,
Tonight we'd mend this damaging world
Tonight we'd break the rules...
But tonight is already gone away
