Get out and find the person within

Burst the bubble you seem to be in

Wake up and smell the coffee bean

There’s more to life than just ME, ME, ME!!

 

When you venture, into the real world

Spread you wings that for years have been curled

Don’t be surprised if you’re over your head

Did you leave your brain tucked up in bed?

 

Feet on the ground?

You’ve got a birds-eye view

Feet on the ground?

You’re the centre of it all,

Feet on the ground?

The world revolves around you

I’ve got news for you,

 

Safe, working hard in your comfort zone

Don’t you realise your in a team all alone

Look after number one, it’s what everyone thinks

Back stabbing side is your only common links

 

Feet on the ground?

You’ve got a birds-eye view

Feet on the ground?

You’re the centre of it all,

Feet on the ground?

The world revolves around you

I’ve got news for you,

 

November day in Dallas

When the motorcade went past

The 35th smiled from inside

Who knew it’d be his last

The shots ring out and people scream

From where nobody knows

First lady screaming in despair

Blood splattered on her clothes

 

Who has the right

To take their life

Before their time

Do we win

Do we lose

Flip the dime

 

The bombshell lay upon her bed

No make up, hair undone

A suicide to end her life

Her pills the smoking gun

Took her own life or was she killed

The crime scene primed and set

Conspiracy, LAPD

Just how was her end met?

 

Who has the right

To take their life

Before their time

Do we win

Do we lose

Flip the dime

 

A man called “X” came to light

A voice for ones oppressed

Went further than the ones before

Believer in his quest

When Malcom spoke the Nation shook

Some angered by his word

A ballroom, but no dancing here

His final speech was heard

 

Who has the right?

To take their life

Before their time

Do we win?

Do we lose?

Flip the dime

(X2)

 

Stand up for what you believe

It’s taught to us in schools

But a higher power is at work

Free speech but their own rules

So please, I ask, don’t rock the boat

And make the people think

If you’re popular you’ll tow the line

Or vanish in a blink…..

 

They have the right

To take their life

 


She steps onto the crowded platform.

Her head searching for a reason why.

She knows its coming.

She runs towards it she’s running away

She reaches the front door, hair in her face.

She knows its closer.

 

 

She pushed the door open, the look on his face

He grips her and throws her to the floor.

He pulls the blinds down to muffle her screams

She screams, he drags her, a rag doll in his hands.

She knows it hurts.

 

She is flung, she is beaten, she is ten minutes late,

She is slapped; she’s bleeding for just ten minutes late,

Silent now but for ten minutes late,

No more now, hair in her face

She’s ten minutes late

 

The numbness takes over; the mist descends,

Watching herself from above, it’s not her.

It’s all over in a heartbeat, the final solution,

 He’s clueless, but did not see it coming.

She’s been driven to this.

 

She is flung, she is beaten, she is ten minutes late,

She is slapped; she’s bleeding for just ten minutes late,

Silent now but for ten minutes late,

No more now, hair in her face

She’s ten minutes late

 

The breathing subsides, calm, without a care

Hands stretched out, face of inquisition.

Another blow, to end the torment of

The last breath a silent apology.

She rests now…

She knows it’s over…..

She rests now…

She knows it’s over…..

 

I said it once shall I say it again

Do you need me to spell it out?

Indecision just drives me insane

You don’t understand what its all about

 

I just want you to get the message

And put you out of my misery

You r actions have now burned your bridges

A branch torn from the family tree

 

And I’d tell you, I don’t love you

But I don’t want you anymore

The girl of many years ago

Has withered out and died

I’m in search of the love that i lost

 

Couldn’t you see all of the signs

The vacant stares the awkward silence

Hard to read between lines

Here rests my case for the defence

 

Life before all this now feels like a dream

Hard to believe that i was awake

All that time I swam against the stream

Looking back with a double take

 

And i’d tell you, I don’t love you

But I don’t want you anymore

The girl of many years ago

Has withered out and died

I’m in search of the love that i lost
