Black Heart White

Continuing to fight against a fixed, resolute force in your life will only cause that force to root itself deeper in the ground.  Constant attempts to reconfigure and realign that force around a different perspective will only drain your sense of self worth and purpose.  When you come into contact with this kind of negative force, do not let it surround you and take hold.  Break yourself away before the thought of changing it consumes you.

This can be extremely difficult when you have watched this force slowly empty itself hollow, growing hard and cold over the years.  You want to save it.. you want to share truth and tenderness, sense and faith, love.. but every new idea is repelled against its inflexible shield.  There was a softness there once, a joy for life, but those trivial values have withered, leaving a sadness and anger that is thrusted upon any opposing force.

I am the opposing force so I walked away leaving those hardened forces in a kind of earthly purgatory, waiting with teeth showing and mouths foaming.  Waiting to attack the moment I open the door.  Finding acceptance that I cannot be the catalyst to their change caused me to realize that fighting their fight only drags me down into that world of negativity and ignorance.  I’m not sure I want to hammer the nail in the coffin just yet.. but I cannot stand to be belittled or talked down to by these negative forces in my life.  So I walked away from the battleground with my hands in the air and have not looked back.

You can sit there, talk your talk, but I can tell you no one’s listening

Blowing all that smoke you want, but I will never take you in the ring

I’ve had more than enough, it’s time to leave

But it’d be more than enough if you believed in something

The great divide, I go left you go right

But this time I’m not turning around

…………………………………………………………………………….

You’re the first to aim the blow, but tell me how can you discriminate

Against the ones responsible for putting dinner on your dinner plate

See it’s amazing to me that you can breathe

Without the slightest possibility of finding release

Want me to back down, want to drag me around

I won’t bite

‘Cuz I will never turn your black heart white

…………………………………………………………………………….

Treat me like a child, sit me down and take me for the fool

You’ve been there for a while, I’ll bet it’s lonely on your pedestal

Oh you treat me like a child, sit me down and take me for the fool

I know you’ve been there for a while, I’ll bet it’s lonely…

I’ll be it’s lonely on your pedestal

…………………………………………………………………………….

You can sit there, talk your talk, but I can tell you no one’s listening…
