Declined Lights

We have to hide
We have to cry in silence
Exposed nerves wear us out
Hands grasped firmly through the chase
Our endings chasing us to dark places
Trying to separate us we refuse
Out of shelter no ammunition
Threats above below wherever we are sit
Exhausted but never losing our grip

They say we’ll be outside gnashing teeth

They say we will be outside lost and confused

Close enough to see freedom but not attend

Rejects close enough but not good enough in the end

This isn’t about our feelings this is more about sides
Humans like two choices okay maybe a third occasionally
I guess we will see
All I want is her hand while I go to court
Verdict lights denied
Is the darkness while we’re alive called depression
Can this Hell be escaped with chemicals and mindsets wrong
Eating smoking drinking hiding from the warning signs
We have to hide from death and life
Threats from people swearing they’ve found paradise

They say we’ll be outside gnashing teeth

They say we will be outside lost and confused

Close enough to see freedom but not attend

Rejects close enough but not good enough in the end

Told a father had plenty rooms and we were invited
Only problem is we’re bastards abandoned stranded
Rule after rule to get a hug instead of beatings
Shaking saying oh lord yeah leader of ridiculous distractions
Hands tight spooning at night while salvation snuffed right beside us

We have to hide these days
Cry in silence wipe tears away
Pretend pressure isn’t building
Fake smiles to keep living
Hatred screaming so we can’t sleep
The sky is falling upside down

They say we’ll be outside gnashing teeth

They say we will be outside lost and confused

Close enough to see freedom but not attend

Rejects close enough but not good enough in the end.
