Ideas, Etc.

The world is changing and it scares me every day

It seems that I can't open up my mouth and say

Anything that's on my mind for fear of scaring them away 

Because it's true

 

So for protection I put all my eggs into

The black bottomless basket hidden underneath my heart to keep from

Losing all the precious things that make me who I am

And losing you

 

maybe my perception is misdirection truthfully 

But it isn't news to me that all I am is someone used to

Put you up upon a pedestal of popularity

Only to fall

 

But that isn’t all that I’m worried for because these

things that I’ve been thinking bout can’t keep me off my floor

these things I’m thinking bout can’t happen anymore 

Or else were doomed

 

The world is changing and it scares me every day

It seems that I can't open up my mouth and say

Anything that's on my mind for fear of scaring them away

Anything thats on my mind
