you play your tricks on me, nobody suspects it
i feel so lonely, why can't i play around?
but your lies are so sweet, they choke me right down
to everybody, i know what i am
i'm never needed, forever i will be alone
there's no use for me in this filled-up world
though the play that you went to kind of seemed fun
come on, come on now
walk right over here
clap your hands and sing into the air
that's enough now, sick of playing games
and today, i've always known
i'm a bad child and nothing more
i dreamed of diamonds, colours oh so sweet
but when i wake up, i only see my worn feet
i'm torn apart now, what can i do?
there's a voice, singing loudly, singing to you
come on, tonight's the night we play our game
hurry, hurry, hurry to the place
it's okay, it's good you feel this way
and the child you now can see
she dances, oh the irony
two and one and four and three
let's all play hide and seek
I raised a paw to shield my eyes from the fierce glare, moaning from the piercing pain it sent into my brain. As my pupils adjusted, I found myself staring around with wonder. There were tall brown things with big bushy green tops, and smaller green stuff that was soft and springy under my body. Dotted around were pretty colourful things that gave the air a nice, scented aroma. I shivered as a breeze passed by my body - my blue fur was still wet from my time in the egg, and the wind chilled me. Without warning I was covered in a thick, warm sheet and raised off the ground. I twisted in alarm as a hand came towards me, holding a small red and white ball. There was a flash of red, then nothing.
When I next came to, I could immediately tell I was in a different place. The air smelt completely different, and the overall atmosphere thrummed with energy. I cowered in fear - to go from somewhere so calm to somewhere so full of life was a huge leap my newborn mind co
The one who was told
"Don't let anger control you!"
What if that's all that dwells at times?
Anger at everyone around me
"Don't let yourself be a sloth!"
What if it's not that I'm lazy
But that I did this wrong
And that wrong
And just gave up
"Do not be envious of others!"
But it's so hard not to be
When you watch everyone else around you
Happy as can be, while you're still in the dark
Wishing for what they have
"Do not dabble in lust!"
What of the girl
Who feels used and is tormented
By her blackest of sins
And loss of respect for herself
"Do not become to proud!"
So is it better to feel the opposite
To have lower than low self-esteem
Wishing for the world to end
On a daily basis
"Do not be gluttonous!"
Is it better for the people
Who refuse to eat anything
Because of their distorted image
And let themselves waste away
"Do not let yourself be greedy!"
What if it's hard to control
And the desire for so much love
Until you can barely contain it
