I drowned in the colourless landscape. Sinking,sinking,sinking. I reach the bottom of the murky waters Blind to everything, alone. I bleed, hoping to attract the sharks Yet that also fades into the same grey.
A ray or light pierces through like a spotlight Guiding me towards the surface And suddenly I'm able to swim freely. Breaking through I fly with all my strength In hopes of a clear blue sky But like Icarus I am fated to fall
Again and again I fly up in great hopes But my wings are ripped out mercilessly A poor bird in the palms of a cruel child I am brought to my knees Felled by the actions of a conqueror And made to dance like a fool.
Looking into the eyes of the puppeteer I am forced to obey as their doll. Dancing with no end through the hands that control me I spin sadly on the spot unable to move as I wish. Freedom is out of my grasp I wish I was free.
