Beatnik

written by: gilligan3

You say you're tired of the way things have been run
That it's important to you who's in charge
But you won't stand up and be counted
Because then you'd be giving into the system

You claim that you're different
But you're only human and they'll forget you one day
When your ashes have graced the wind
And settled into the refuse of humanity

You're a revolutionary with your pain
And with your words you'll change the world
But one day you'll see that without action
Words are little but letters smashed together on the page

One day my friend you'll see
But today just sit there and write you feelings away
So you can get back to playing you're game
And listlessly wishing your life away
