i set fire to the stage
i ignite the wistful crowds
i burn off the age
ain't no care about any shrouds..
they cheered me on
screaming " one more song "
i force a smile and i go on again
get down on my knees but shouting still, i fight this pain
i sway and they sway with me as i get down all i hear is my name
i search and research the crowd
people creating a frenzy on meeting my lingering gaze
ow! the speakers blaring so loud
but my eyes don' rest and alas they're covered in a misty haze..
i don' see him out there
but my heart goes on still with a silent prayer
disappointed , i shred another solo, moving my fingers in a burning frenzy
my heart cries out loud .. and i scream louder..none then i can see
i burn my fingers against my guitar
the crowd screams and howls..i sweat it all out.my mind afar
" you are no good" .. "
" oh come on..get rid of that black hood"
" i have no time to listen crap..its better if you study just as you should"
" yeah right..ill come..ill see you perform..i have some feelings too.im no wood.."
i can't take it anymore..and i throw it away
the crowd howls louder..i stop.. i refuse to play
they try and stop me but the look in those burning eyes stops them far from my way
i splash cold the freezing water on my burning face
its red with fury.." what's with me? " .. i am the ace
i walk back home
away from madness..all alone
i knock and hear no answer
i barge in
there he is..still busy
taking no notice of virtues or sins
lying on the cot
i think to myself, did i ask for a lot?
he should've come, he was my brother
but oh yes..he's busy as hell..he has others
tears feel warm against my freshly washed hot face
i try and pass another night in this god damned place
i pick up my guitar
play some more
he won't notice
he won't care
i play loud..i beat the strings
he knocks..i don' care
he comes in and i smile
as if he has some angel wings
he stands there and i look up
he screams " care to put it down or just the fu** up"
right..here goes another thud over it is like every night
i sleep on it yet again...fighting tears , fighting plight..
