The quest was for you to find what you had lost
Instead you were arguing about the autumn frost
Remaining stood baffled underneath the stars
As the birds flew away when you remorse
Many stood on the soil you stand on now
I’m sure they felt exactly like you somehow
And yet you often drift into your cocoon
Wasn’t the idea to let your ego bloom?
Sufficient attention has been wasted on your thoughts
Efficient ideas never really swam across
And yet the talent is that you feel the same
The entire universe seems small again
Re-invent the memories which made you feel despair
Eradicate the theories which got lost in the way
Someday believe me you will come home
To everything you once owned, loved and outgrown
Looking out the window were your most important thoughts
It was how you felt about it and now how much it costs
It’s true that you are pretty and all that jazz
And need constant reassurance on established facts
Nothing really changed since the day you were born
Nothing will remain after you’re gone
Since you started this the show must go on
One butterfly died, dead thus so long.
Rise and shine Cupcake, the movie wasn’t that fake,
So walk around with duct tape, now that you found a clue,
Be kind to the rat race, for they invented fast pace,
In the middle of this circus, where did you lose your Glow?
Run down and lock the door, never saw the peacock snore?
The shades are not that low, the feelings still subside,
Who needs a zoo in a jungle? Who wants food when you’re hungry?
I’d have addressed your comfort, if you and I were thru.
Alkaline batteries, five point arteries,
Got a lid on your cavities, and the dentist was gay,
God had a hearty laugh, as he heard about the IT blast,
Called his wife and bought her flowers, screaming look how they lost their Glow!
Deserted were my prison cells, working on your oil wells,
Hi-risers on Times Square, with their porcelain insured,
Standing on the river banks, the fishermen and their broken wands,
Think about their dinner plans, where did we lose our Glow?
She watched him move the goods on dock, his hair was short and arms were long,
Resembling a good son to a drunken father dead, she felt alive no more,
He never saw another day, the boy the man and the tombstone grave,
So for the rest of her coffee break, where did she lose her Glow?
The ground shines with starlight, the stars never sparkled that bright,
The kite stuck in a dry leaf strike, as the electric wires sway,
I left as it stood low, my dreams have never seemed that slow,
I saw your shadow come too close and gave up some way.
Four matchboxes with no sticks, my head for me grew too thick,
I always knew I was a little sick, but then I never let me go,
So give me all I ever had, with the magic dust of your golden sack,
I don’t expect you to understand, just give me back my Glow.
I said you think I’m strong, whatever made me and you wrong,
I swear I wanted to play along, but it was not my day,
I wanted to be something great, so I broke everything I ever made,
All that remained is the after taste of what made me lose my Glow!
