Do what you wantHow can you measure the pass of a day
When the hours won't ever lay still
The sun sets and rises twelve times a week
For we've got some spare time to kill
What does one know of the feelings inside
Of our faces that never don't smile
There's nothing wrong with showing our teeth
To live in the light for a while
Step on the racetrack and give life your best
For even if you'll never win
Finish the journey and maybe you'll find
The place where all stories begin
Don't be held back by the devils or lies
When you know deep down what is right
Let troubles go and learn how to fly
And you'll never again have to fight
sleep for the endyesterday the sky was blue
how things can change in a day
that very hour i never knew
insomnia was coming my way
the darkest days i'd show a smile
don't need any personal light
found my own way for a while
for once i was winning this fight
but it caught me by surprise
a trap for when i grew weak
now i see through jaded eyes
my perfect world gone bleak
ain't enough to stand up tall
like nothing can bring me down
will i make it through at all
or simply fall and drown
hungerto be hollow but not heartbroken
withdrawn but not sad
queasy but not sick
dizzy but definitely not drunk
a teacher who watches the world, a student
sees mistakes are made but cannot guide
sees confusion and endless blind ignorance
frustrated for the sake of simple pride
an envy of the crazy, the local cat lady
at least she has company all she wants
while there are too many who walk all alone
wishing for someone to talk to, just once
pity the starving who have naught but naught
those who live in a world of waste and misuse
while people are clueless and don't give a damn
so few can escape life's long hard abuse
walking in the darkwhat do you do when the truth is a lie
and you can't seem to find where to go?
what do you do when the people you trust
are the people you don't really know?
when the sky falls and you're left all alone
with secrets that no-one should hear,
just keep on running in hopes that you find
freedom that you can hold dear.
don't look behind you for that simply proves
that you're only alone in this war.
know you don't walk with your eyes in the dark
there's a whole new world to explore.
take my advice with a spoonful of salt
'cause it sounds too good to be true.
keep your head high and don't follow me
you should only trust one person; you.
there is no place like home..i've run away from everywhere
felt the sting of cool night air
won't stay long i must return
this blistered scar it starts to burn
no safe haven i can stay
nowhere far enough away
from bitter words and taunting sneers
and secrets not for others' ears
i don't belong in any place
it's only me i must erase
once i danced out in the light
now only for another fight
keep on searching for someone
to help undo the things i've done
i know that what i did was wrong
don't break down i must be strong
count the tears i did not cry
take a step towards the sky
just for now i'll play pretend
and live like every day's the end
Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
