Preaching to the Choir

Location

 

So this is me

Shoegazing

Always

An epiphany

And your garage rock sound

Does nothing to stir me

I just sit back

Watching the flow

Smooth over my edges

Until I’ve got curves

Finally

Though my rebellion against homeliness

Has nothing against self-destruction

So, that’s right

Keep pumping your fists

Struggling with

Anarchy

Anarchy

The sound will defeat my struggles

Until it ends

And I’m left exposed

My wrists tied

To a pole

All eyes watching me

But this is me

Shoegazing

Always

Polyphony

And though I refuse to dance

I ask that you not leave

Wait it out

Your entertainment

Can come in the form of playing

Me

Like strings

And singing

Corporatocracy

Just wait for it

They’ll unveil themselves

With their tools of manipulation

And mind-numbing

Can’t get much more numb than this

Ignore all the signs

And fall for my lines

Untie me

And I’ll smother every last breath you can muster

Until you cry

Cry

Cry
