Brand New World

(Michael Timmins )

Mouths to feed
Shoes to buy
Rent to pay
Tears to dry
Brand new world
…I can’t relate
Let us choose
to not participate

Open up
Let me wander in
Your heart is not
such a tender thing
Brand new world
… I contend
only love
can stop the withering

Oh, to lie in wait
as the shadows and the shapes
spill across the walls
live a river
in spate

4 am
dark reality
Brand new world
… and my heart is missing
