“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’m falling
I’m drowning
Please help me
I’m asking
I’m raising my hand

What else do you want me to do?
Whisper your name
Pronounce your name properly
I’m raising my hand

You never pick me
You think I’m stupid
I am kinda stupid
But you could help me
I’m raising my hand

Your mouth is moving
Numbers are coming out
Twisted wrangled numbers
I’m raising my hand

Then words start to come out
Twisted words
Unreal words
I’m raising my hand

I hear X
And maybe Y
Then something about Identify
And how it’s so easy
I’m raising my hand

Easy for you
Easy for the laughs around me
The snores around me
The world around me
I’m raising my hand

Are you blind?
Can you not see my waving arm?
Am I really that short?
That invisible
I’m raising my hand

You’re so gone
Off to the next chapter
I’m still lost in the last one
Stuck in history
I’m raising my hand

History I understand
Words in English
Words of people
I understand people
I’m raising my hand

I understand sorrow
Their dignity
Their tradition
Their faith
I’m raising my hand

Believe in me
I want to understand
No one has any faith
The world needs some
I’m raising my hands

The noise has drifted
I’m back in history
Back to lives
Back to reality
I’m raising my hands

Back to battles
And birthdays
And dates
And numbers
I’m raising my hand
