Bleeding Ink #1,232

I don’t know if I know how to be here

I tried to let the light back in

I tried to shake out the darkness

I tried to breathe just right

I tried to run ahead

I tried to plan it just right

How do you explain it

When everyone just wants to be famous…

How do you explain it

When everyone is after instant gratification

The phone in their hand

The streamline to streaming

How do we get back?

How do we escape from here?

Where do we run to?

You know,

We all look the same

We all sound the same

What’s it going to take

To get you to shake

All the things

OFF ——-that weigh you down

What happened to your youth

And

All the things you used to

Stop and get excited by and by and by and bye

You just pass by

On the street

Are we numb

Or just incomplete

How do we escape from here

He said

A hard hard hard rain is going to fall *

But here we are

Just chasing chasing chasing

Our tails

Tangled by our shadows

In the street

I don’t know if I know how to be here

*Bob Dylan, A Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall, Album The Free Wheelin’ Bob Dylan, 1963
