lyrics

Dead Metaphors (LYRICS)

There’s a bird without wings
There’s a moth without light
Re-birthed to remain
Their will is found then lost again

Stripped of value
Picked clean of pride
From a time that was bright, to the blight

What’s left to believe in?
What’s left to hold high?
Expressions are seizing
Emotions are dire
Without a reason, not to expire!

Dead metaphor, lost its’ lore
Sapped of all meaning
No themes come to mind
From a time that was bright, to the blind

Crumbled to pebbles
Crushed to no size
Muzzled and bellowed
Thoughts kicked to the side
Kept in boarded up buildings
Where dead metaphors hide!
