City Noise

I listen to a lot of music and spend a huge chunk of my time with headphones on, it has an ability to change our perspectives, our mood and influence us in ways, you can not imagine, but I feel some musicians forget that at times.

These headphones drown out the city noise

These lyrics can’t help but give me a voice

These melodies, hold memories that I cherish deep

And the pen I keep, made them come alive readily

A love affair, it’s a woman that sings to me

Numerous art forms that combine so creatively

And make us weak, but build us up stronger

These coping mechanisms, see, that’s what songs are

A part of us, like a relation as such

We relate as much, you see they made us love

Made us hate, made us feel all sorts of stuff

That weakness stuck and made us take it up

Now we make it up, we control the music

We set the tone, were the ones who influence it

We can take arms up over those who harm us

We can promote peace and fight against the unjust

Represent the unloved, live for the unlucky

Remember the public, listen to the our words, corruptly

Until you’re screaming, “Please don’t corrupt me

I just want you to love me, now quality is fuzzy

The power is in your words, so it’s in your hands

Take out your pen and take it to the man

Speak for the people, defeating the evil

Until we sleep peacefully, with no need for deceitful

You are the voice of a generation, write a lyric

Let your melody speak for everyone to relive it

Don’t get caught up in a publicity ploy

Because it’s your words they hear over that city noise
