Idiot Savant (Bury Me)

spiderI don’t want this if it serves me never, lost circle, never had one anyway, so the eclipse takes the control, let all ties be severed.

All the things I can see out in the void of Earth, but I don’t live among you anymore, never did before, from the age of now since birth.

Line up all your secrets and your fears, the little things no one gets, I get and love, but no one has gotten me for all those lonely years.

 

Bury my heart at the center of the dark, its home, never reach port to disembark.

Simple Simon only wanted simple wares, a piece of that life, no satisfaction to the dare.

Cuts and pricks from the thistle thorn, and the hidden damage they do when swallowed, they bleed and I’m torn in two.

The idiot in some ways, can’t see how everyone else plays, a savant in others, I could change the days, but I refuse, you all use, the parts of me you need, while for me needs are left open ended, no chance to ever feed, no pardon, never freed.

 

Take these eyes, if they never see eye to eye with another, I wish to blind myself to my insides, no longer have to suffer.

From dreams and loves never to reach fruition, things I can never be, so why can’t we place those things in cages, intoxicating remission.

Gone already anyway, no chance of a return, for there to be a winner, others have to lose, so can we just take these gifts, light matches, watch it all burn?

 

Bury my heart at the center of the dark, its home, never reach port to disembark.

Simple Simon only wanted simple wares, a piece of that life, no satisfaction to the dare.

Cuts and pricks from the thistle thorn, and the hidden damage they do when swallowed, they bleed and I’m torn in two.

The idiot in some ways, can’t see how everyone else plays, a savant in others, I could change the days, but I refuse, you all use, the parts of me you need, while for me needs are left open ended, no chance to ever feed, no pardon, never freed.

Never given the basics you throw in my face, never let in, for no original sin, cannot now begin, to join the race you never let me enter.
