If my father was a Titan
it’s a shame I never met him,
If my ancestors were gods
then I was set out in the woods.
If I was the heir of Caesar
then my life is but a teaser,
And if great things were to come,
something’s gone wrong.
I was promised all the trasures,
I was to be weigh’t in gold;
my mama said I’m something special,
I must have a story to be told.
I was meant to be the center
of the entire universe;
I was meant to be
You migh say: ‘History’s a story of a twilight-glory,
where the actors might be ancient, but the author is today.’
But neither’s me.
I just see people that are younger,
do the things I might have done;
I just see people that are higher,
go the ways I might have gone;
I just see people that are stronger,
solve the problems I might’ve had;
I just see people that are faster,
outrun the things that I dread.
I see others hold my veneration,
others hold the master key,
Other people smiling from the
screens and pages down at me;
Other people crowned by masses
in moronic ecstasy;
It’s other people liked,
You might say: ‘Everyone is special and is gifted anywhere!’
But when god gave all his children equal talents -
I wasn’t there.
Now, can you draw the circle
or are you still drawing the line?
Cause when I wake up febrile from my sleep,
is it from your dreams - or mine?
And if the world hung by a silky thread,
would I dare to cut the cable?
And are my scissors sharp enough
to cut fact from fable?
You might say: ‘Hope’s the final thing to die, just confide and relax!’
But hope will be my hangman, and confidence -
will be its axe.
