Are You My Mother?

 

Are you my mother?

Or a figure that moves in the dark

Are you my sister?

Or a ghost that frightens the hall

Are you my comrade?

Or do we fight for the opposite side

Are you my lover?

Or a wolf in a clever disguise

 

Are you my old friend?

Or more like a dark distant star

Iā€™d send you a message

But you can't be bothered to pick it apart

Is it illegal?

No, it's not fair or for them to decide

What is considered equal

& what gets left in the valley to starve

 

It's their institutions that set us up

To distract the present & not disrupt

To never ask questions with the TV on

To learn to feel nothing til the feeling is gone

 

Do you seek shelter?

In this era of scarce privacy

Do you fiend status?

As you cave with the economy

Do you want diamonds?

Or did you find fortune inside of your heart

Do you think beauty

Is something you swipe on a dead credit card?

 

It's their institutions that set us up

To distract the present & not disrupt

To never ask questions with the TV on

To learn to feel nothing til the feelings gone
