Kindly Numb

philosophy of colony - with dirty teeth of halloween
the color green is all they need from us
a simple cry, the guilty lead -
a city street of quiet feet the century when nothing is enough 

What we know of the carnival
as we sink and fall in the undertow
We strain and crawl and dodge the sun.......... 
while staying kindly numb 

And next to me across see
well, will we dare to call it greed?
as surely as confusion clears the dust
And what you see a human being, an enemy a threat to me
when sanity is something near to lust

Suffering under lock and glass at home
Remembering all the ones we've left alone
With flowers singing the song of spring
as we stay kindly numb

Don't make a sound, or all this crumbles to the ground
Hope may surround, in the dark - Let it glow.......

We plant a seed from beauty's tree and maybe years it's later seen
it's certainly a caring deed of love
And finally the people plea -and why don't we just let us breathe
the ones we need were never near enough
and don't question what you know
For there's no place called Mexico
We stumble on and wait for dawn - While staying kindly numb
