Painted Smile

I don’t paint a smile for all to see
I don’t need company for my misery
Sometimes, I just want to be left alone
And travel the world within headphones

I tried to break through these four walls
As echoes vibrate the floor boards
As I get the sweetest taste of freedom
As words form on the page you read from

I don’t paint pictures for all to see
I hang drawings on the wall for me
Manic ramblings of a sane lunatic
As confusion reigns over a playlist

The peace breaks my silence
As the air, around me fills with sirens
Drunk of a cocktail of sex and violence
As we slave of the threat of tyrants

I don’t paint a smile for all to see
I paint pictures of a wretched reality
As I laugh along with the humourless
And wrestle with the morals of fugitives
