Safety on the Shores of Alcatraz

Here are the colors of your world,
Close your eyes and set them free.
Drink the waters of regret
Amongst our society,
(This is our society)

[Chorus]
No, this is something that I won't let go,
This is something that you can't control!

Flesh is your proprietor,
You're dying at the scene.
Caution tape holds you back,
He'll wash your filthy heart clean,
(Your heart, it's really not clean.)

[Chorus]
No, this is something that I won't let go,
This is something that you can't control!

The media must circulate
This nightmarish scheme-
Love and anger huddle close
I won't hear you scream,
(No one can hear you scream.)

Quick, ready your weapons,
Your words won't save you this way
Forget about what they said,
It's too late for them to stay,
(It's too late for you to stay.)

[Chorus]
No, this is something that won't be let go,
This is something that you can't control,
Love is an action, love is a pace
Get there, stay there and you will be safe.


The author's comments:
This came from a dream, I could hear a song and I was singing it in my head...then I exclaimed, "hey, this song doesn't exist!" and I ran to get a pen and paper to write it down..that's when I woke up.
I was bummed that I couldn't remember all of it. But the first two lines, along with "flesh is your proprietor" are from the dream.
I don't usually write lyrics...so not really sure about it.
