* You, facing danger
Everything is floating away
Resisting the water
When the world is an aquarium
** At some point you turn twenty
Avoiding the fish hook
Breathing a breath of relief
When the world is a net
*** Swim, swim, swim away.
My dreams dive into you and drown
Swim, swim, swim away.
My life dives into you and drown
Crossing every line
Emphasizing being upright
Telling others to be straight when you’re crooked
Trying to run
When you’re surrounded by walls
You try to place those bricks
When you are a star
Because of the useless requests of the adults,
You become a shooting star
The hand that gave you the shovel points fingers at you
And tells you that you dug your own grave
Drown and die.
