Weighed Down

We all have a thief dying to come out
We must control that side of us…We must undo that knot (we must solve the case)
We are victims in our own minute minds…no doubt
We must arrest that criminal…before it causes mischief and what not (find your own way out of my maze)

Reawaken from depression
Don’t be weighed down by apprehension…
Stay awake…don’t wither away…don’t move a single muscle
Listen to the whispering wind…and its rustle

Promise me you won’t drift away

Drowning in depression
Don’t let me influence you to a certain degree 
Stay alive…and be content… wait till Resurrection
Glisten as the sensational sun…and its sun rays, glittering with glee

(chorus) Weighed down…
I’m wearing a remorseful frown…
Weighed down…
Gravity holds me down 
To the ground…
without a sound….
Face down…
Without a sound…
left there without a sound…
Without a sound…
no one cared…
they never did 
from the start
And it breaks my heart
To say this, 
but I feel this way…
And I don’t want to 
fade away…
Left without a trace…
Look at my bloodied face 
And solve this bewildering, 
Outlandish case
While you do that, 
I’ll be running the race
But, I’ve learned 
That we all wear that mask…of a miserable clown
