neilsthepoet blog: Tyrant

Saturday, November 20, 2004



You can't please a tyrant
They aim to play the game
Of manipulation to capitulation
Maiming you with their shame

Until they own you outright
Drawin on a central theme
They hold the reigns of power
And all you've got's a dream


Inside unspoken hearts
Lives a broken child
Wanting you to free them
As they lie in wait defiled

They're tryin to fulfill some need
But they can't let go
Can't make room for answers
They don't already know


What they can't do alone
They'll do with another
Willing to work together
To play one against the other

They'll draw and quarter you
And blame you when it fails
They're absolutely merciless
Their justice has no scales
