A Human Game

I really tried to balance it all,
The night I knocked a hole in your wall,
Knuckles bloody, bandage unrolled,
But no ears for words to unfold.

I really thought deeply tho’
My conclusions will blow,
a solution you know.

I strongly, strongly need to talk,
Thirty nights I postponed the call,
Let’s just walk a tiny walk,
I’ll tell you all, I’ll tell you all.

I knock, I knock at empty space,
I knock chaotic and in pace,
There is blood all up to my waist,
And in my mouth that I can taste,
I knock, I knock, why can’t you hear?
Just few words, I’ll be really clear
For thirty days I had them stirred,
I knock, I knock, I’m here, I’m here!

I turn my back, the door is dead,
Yes, just as dead as is my bed.
I loaf about an empty head,
Now there’s nothing I would have said.

I left a note, it’s left unread,
Ignorance made me be real fed,
I scrape the blood of my right hand,
There are no friends in bitter ends.

I really tried to balance it all,
My words untold and never sold,
Now I will build a big bad wall,
I’ll hide really well till I’m bored,
I’ll sell my hugs for mounts of gold,
Thrive like kings till I’m old,
A reign of empty words unfolds,
A hurting soul that wrote some notes,
An absurd drama with no roles,
Thriving lonely with no goals,
You can knock but it’s too late,
The head from shoulders has escaped,
I guess one day this is my faith,
The feudal lands, a human game.
