I painted my walls black,
And you asked if I was okay.
But I've been down for months
And you only noticed today?

See, people look for a road sign,
They can't read between the lines.
So we learn to wear our sadness
And muffle all that shines.

For it doesn't seem to matter
Until it affects them, or I'm dead.
You say "Just get over it",
You say it's all in my head.

Yes, genius, it is in my brain,
Consuming every damn thought.
Reversing the basic survival instinct,
Not seeing what's good, but what's not.

Well I painted my walls black,
And you asked me if I was okay.
I smiled and said, "I'm fine",
You smiled and walked away.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

WHAT IS THIS MADNESS. YOU ACTUALLY RHYMED?

Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming. - Alice Walker.
What you wear is your billboard. So, what are you advertising?

Geez, seems like it doesn't matter whether I'm doing good or not, unless it affects someone from getting what they want.
