Comfortably Numb ©©

What’s this?
What’s that?
Do this now
Come here
Go there
Don’t wait
Don’t stop to think
Do it do it now

Move your fucken ass
What are you waiting for?
Stop thinking and fucken go
Go before I change my mind
Do it or your fired, it’s over, you’re history
You’re gone
Out of here, either way

Bang you head
Smack it against the wall
Pull at your hair
Until your fingers are covered with frustration
Beat yourself until you open your eyes
Until you see what’s right
What’s wrong?
What’s real or surreal?

Step out of the clouds
Walk on solid ground
Around potholes
Pits dug by emotional cripples
Traps set by a festering disease
Living in the souls of a few
Controlling the globe
Now trying to steal the moon and stars

I wonder when all the lights will go on at once
When will the world see through the same eyes?
Will we shine brighter than the sun?
Or will the sun burn us to a crisp before we do
Looking at what I see
Scares me
Not the destruction
Just the willingness to do it

The title forced me to read this piece in a very different way.

The final lines are just fantastic!
