Hats and caps, leather bats
Which one doesn’t belong?
See it’s easy. One could easily say it’s squeezy
Yeeeah… That’s weird. But how about this?
Clocks and stopwatches, gotta go through a couple washes. Time sensitive. Flawed
Time secretive. I’m appalled at the number of people I often see wearing shawls
Or are they hats? Perhaps they are caps, but sheep don’t yawn
I mean the ignorant and apathetic are easily entertained and distracted.
Don’t have time to be bored
Don’t have the tick tocks to clock in my hours obtained in this service of life
But I’m appalled at how many hats I see…
Look, I’m wearing mine now
Can’t you see
That this isn’t just any hat see
This is my ship sailing on a chaotic sea
So cease the Thames
So says my shame
See-saws are my deepest fears because
I see Saul’s fear of his demise: of being thrown away and forgotten
Know that this isn’t a game
This is a mental restraint
I’m not talking about material
I’m talking about the role they play
The whispers that our masks say in our ears.
Our hats, our masks, our beanies and flasks
These jackets hide our pasts
Our realities, the mysteries, and skeletons that we hate
And they are dangerous
They hold the keys to our egos and our self esteems
They are exactly what we despise about ourselves we’re afraid
And I’ve been meaning to take mine off
Cause every hat I put on has a different color to go with a different outfit
And I often find myself grasping for the actual me,
The real path of actuality Mr. Nobody
And we all can’t live on like in a world of immortals
The remnant will eventually die
I’m talking about my faces, my charades
Each has a different visage, each with an altered personality Legion
I am the father of an illegitimate monster I constantly attempt to hide away
Collectively they have changed my perspective Mr. Robot
And I’m sick Personality 762. Three times as sick of this vicious game I play with people Smino
And I find my own insecurity is nothing but irrational
So how about I take of this hat.
No more secrets
No more hiding…
And on goes a new pair of laces.
