Little Man

Oh, the stories he could tell of how it was Back Then
When the days were longer and spirits were stronger
And everyone remembered the reason for living
And the meaning of reason
Now he warns of forgotten signs
Omens hidden in the world around
Things that he's cried since he first could see
Things that he's cried all along

But nobody listened; no one's ever heard
Just open your heart and you'll hear what you want
Probably won't be the wee Little Man
But you'll be happier that way, right?

You know what they say about the strange Little Man
How his mind's crumpled up and how he's in a haze
In a daze, he's not ok
But he's always right in his jumbled-up mind
Did you ever stop to feel for the strange Little Man
Do you know how it is to be ignored by the world?
To never be heard, shunned and scorned
So he hides and he cries in his jumbled-up mind

In his world, he's alone and his thoughts romp and roam
In the space of his mind
In that space he can't find
He sighs and remembers the things he's not done
The things he's not won
The one thing he's done
He remembers all the things that he's known all along
And he warns and points to what lies up ahead
Warns and points to what lies in his head
He warns and he points to the lies in his head

You know what they say about the strange Little Man
How his mind's jumbled up and how he's in a haze
In a daze, he's not ok
But he's always right in his jumbled-up mind
Stop and feel for the strange Little Man
Just think of how it is to be ignored by the world
Never heard, shunned and scorned
So he hides and he cries inside his jumbled-up mind

Some interesting things you have in here. Might get a bit repetitive, but these are lyrics so again, if it works, it works. I liked "omens hidden", flowed well and sounded nice after "living/reason". Also the "lies" lines worked for me. The problem in here is that it still sounds like something we've heard before you know? There's still little in this that makes it Alec's and not anyone else. However, you revealed growth and this shows effort, so don't give up on it
