Oblivious

By ManWithHat

A meditation on major faults.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goodnight, sweet Moon, silver in the dark
I just can't see your light.
Good night, cold stars, filling the sky,
You just don't shine too bright.
I can't feel the wind
as I walk the empty street
I can't feel the sidewalk
beneath my feet

I'm oblivious to it all.
It's not that I'm stupid,
My head's just a brick wall
I can't hear you shouting,
so I can't be at your beck and call
I'm just oblivious
to it all.

Oh where did you go my friend, old smiling sun?
Did you escape when I was away?
What happened to the raven's song?
I can hear him call from yesterday.
The taste of sugar
has become a bit less sweet;
The flavor is gone
from all that I eat.

I'm clearly oblivious to it all.
It's not that I'm stupid,
My head's just a brick wall
I can't hear you shouting,
so I can't be at your beck and call
I'm oblivious
to it all.

When I strum my guitar, it isn't making any sound
I guess it just isn't in the mood.
I thought I heard someone whisper, someone cry far away
But I don't say anything. I don't want to be rude.
Don't try and tell me something
if you can't be direct.
I want you to know,
I don't want you to suspect that

I'm oblivious to it all.
It's not that I'm stupid,
My brain's just a brick wall
I can't hear you shouting,
so I can't be at your beck and call
I'm just oblivious
to it all.

I walk through walls and into doors
without a single drop of wine
I walk through life
oblivious, all the time.
