Just some lyrics I wrote - they tell a kind of metaphorical story...

Btw, skepsis comes from the word skeptical.

Locked behind bars,
we are contained
Away from the brightness,
kept entertained
They think they know,
what we're in for
Yet they are blind,
for I can see much more!

(than where the sun may shine)

Skeptically,
I watch my captors
No more stories,
just one last chapter
It's time to end this
hypocritical laughter
I can feel blood rushing
faster and faster

Yet still in the wake of admiration
my troops watch from the side-line
I, no master of conjuration
must remain with neutral align

(not to worry, not to worry)

Soon, soon
My time will come
Aggression gushing
I'm overrun
No choice now,
too late to run
My final chance has begun!

Now I realize
I must go alone
This uprising franchise
is only my own
No waiting for these
'freedom fighters'
They don't know
what they desire!

As I attack, into the sun
I begin to wonder
what have I done?
Deceived by myself
or justified offense?
My own ill health
or counter-defense?

(nothing that I can answer)

Skeptically,
I now ask these questions
Lost in my own
non-comprehension
I stare at the mirror
and blankly stare back
Too unsure
to turn back

Well it's too late now
what's done is done
I hold a lonely vow
and a smoking gun.

(unable to think, unwilling to see)

I have gained much
but lost twice more

Has the world been changed?
Now I'm not so sure...

the first verse made me think of Plato's Cave Allegory.
then the concept started to remind me of Orwell's 1984(greatest book ever written).

lol.


but anyways.
what i liked was that the true message was clear even though you used the metaphor's literally.

nice.
7.75/10

i loved the way the end flows too.

Thanks for the review - I only just noticed the post.

Oh, and 1984 totally rocks!

...even though I haven't read it. My brother says it's good!
