Effigy

In my tattered mind
And in my shattered life
I walk through a fragment world
I look through estranged eyes
And all the things I see
Are lost on all but me
And I do not understand
The complexities of man

Burn me in effigy
Tear it away from me
Let it not be real
These feelings that I feel
And please let me be wrong
About the things that I see
About what I think
This world will come to be

And I find that I don't care
For the dream they want to share
And I can't help but think
About what they try to hide
About all the problems caused
By other peoples pride
And I do not understand
Even though I try

All that I can do
Is sit here and cry
And wonder why it is
That only I will fly

Burn me in effigy
Tear it away from me
Let it not be real
These feelings that I feel
And please let me be wrong
About the things that I see
About what I think
This world will come to be

And all that I can tell you
Is everything I feel
Screams for me to flee
To get away from here

Burn me in effigy
Tear it away from me
Let it not be real
These feelings that I feel
And please let me be wrong
About the things that I see
About what I think
This world will come to be

All these people content
To trundle through their lives
But I will not yield
I will always fly
Always dream
Never die
And if it makes you feel better
Then go right ahead
But I will live with passion
Not die with regret




I had posted the first part of this when I started my livejournal. Now I suddenly finished the "song". So, for those of you who feel that I have a severe arrogance complex, I supply you with more ammunition of my terrible imperfections.

Eh? I heard that. Stupid snide comments. My prostate is calling to you...

By the way, the title is to denote the fact that I feel that people typically try to crucify those who seem to be enjoying themselves more than others. Typically religions, which is why the whole "burn me in effigy" bit.

Not that you needed that explained.

I'll shut up now.

Ciao.
