Finding The Want

Finding The Want


Its got a name
I don't know how
to pronounce

Found in a place
that’s foreign
to myself

Circling around
to find all
that we had   

Fast moving frames
Trick our eyes
into seeing

Those daylight dreams
glazed eye
screenings

You've got to
pull it all in
to push it back out


Is this all there is
everything you want
It felt like so much
Til we had it ourselves

Wanting for need
The security it brings
Us to our knees
We’re left wanting


Finding ourselves
lost in lessons
unlearned

cycles repeat
children scouring
the ground

The rekindled
search begins
without end

A generation
of things we don’t
remember ourselves

We told them
we found with
words without sound

We can't hear it
from you while
telling everyone else


Is this all there is
everything you want
It felt like so much
Til we had it ourselves

Wanting for need
The security it brings
Us to our knees
We’re left wanting


We wake to
ourselves finding   (everything you want)
all that we had      (felt like so much)

Before we went     (everything you want)
looking in             (felt like so much)
a disillusioned world

Filled with the       (everything you want)
jaded Slaves         (felt like so much)
to a machine         

Churning us in      (security brings us)
And Turning         (to our knees)
us out


Is this all there is
everything you want
It felt like so much
Til we had it ourselves

Wanting for need
The security it brings
Us to our knees
We’re left wanting
