(Shock)

lyrics

I no longer see me in your eyes
so either i’m gone or your gone
Or both of us moved on
out of body float on ceilings
speaking nothing, sparing feelings
staring faces, dead in the eye
Killing time before we die

My foot hits the pavement and the concrete don’t give
Not like the soft grass where i used to live
Go down to the corner store to buy a bottled water
Cause the shit from my tap’s like it came from the gutter
Throw my hoodie cause it’s gloomy and cloudy
Put on my headphones and zone out to Rumi
The man behind the counter man i think he’s a saudi
Or some kind of suni he just looks right through me
Homeless man got enough change for a forty
Look at the clock and it’s only 4:30
Avoiding my eye an old lady walks on by
(or) [A void in my eye an old lady walks on by]
She thinks all dreadys are shady and dirty
I go to get a sandwich from the girl at the deli
She reads a book written by Machiavelli
She won’t even chance a glance
Lord it makes me want to cry
why everybody heres looking dead in the eyes

My foot hits the pavement but my toes they can’t feel
How long have i been asleep at the wheel
Lord it into a mirror i don’t know what to do
Cause i can see my eyes are dying too

Oh no one even flinches at the jarring
sound of screaming sirens
a mothers buying cigerettes can’t even hear her child crying
Lady pay attention it’s your own flesh and blood
What will it take to make you wake up other than a Flood
Feeling suffocated all the sounds start to drone
Alone around this crowd i’d rather hide inside my home
So in a rush to go to somewhere else I lost my focus
and now i’m steppin over a homeless man
I didn’t even notice

My foot hits the pavement but my toes they can’t feel
How long have i been asleep at the wheel
Lord look into a mirror i don’t know what to do
Cause i can see my eyes are dying too
