Bit by bit, I saw the world go awry
From within a cage, of the tears I cry.
Bit by bit, I heard the world go dumb
From a cage, of voices stifled with false aplomb.
I watched and watched as plans fell apart
While devouring all energy needed for a restart
Falling hard, crushing hearts
Like a domino of shelves, in a misshapen mart.
The thoughts of daring
Thoughts of self caring
All evaporated in a capitalistic mist
Leaving all, with a monetary itch.
Ideals died, hope cried
On the grills of life, dreams were fried
And all I did was watch the world go awry
Stuck within a cage of the tears I cry.
