I need you
To point me
In the right direction
Because right now
I don’t see the point
And I don’t see where
I’m headed


I gave it my everything
And ultimately got nowhere
Despite the many lives
I changed along the way

And now it all seems

Nobody cares
Nobody notices
Nobody questions
Or does the work

So what’s the point
I really don’t see the point

I’m inclined
To get a bowl of popcorn
And watch this drama play out
But how can I sit idly by
As your blood spills

Everyone is reading
From the same canned script
They read before
Nothing changes
But the props

And now it all seems
