A Blackened Ceiling

A Blackened Ceiling

It's fair
but that's the problem
when you've started from a couple of steps behind
It's there
but never noticed
Sometimes we're so conveniently blind

Only fools
go to confession
when they've never done anything wrong
Our schools
were never in session
while we were there all along

I find that I've hit a blackened ceiling
No more can I dream that I can fly
The red's gone from my blackened feelings,
while my heart will never truly die

But it could
I wish it would
I wish a star that I might wish upon would fall
If it would
then I could
give more than just my all

But a lie
is the sky
that refuses to ever fall
But no sky
has ever mattered
when in a room with four so blackened walls

And now I've hit a blackened ceiling
They made me believe that I could fly
What was painted red now is sadly peeling,
while my heart will never truly die

Never I
I'm never high
when I'm not allowed to see the sky
And I'm
halfway blind
when I don't get to see the things that should be mine

They say the world's made for every man
and that's exactly why
I'll never understand…

why I've hit a blackened ceiling
No more can I dream that I can fly
The red's gone from my blackened feelings
while my heart will never truly die

And so I never die,
but still… I'll never fly



For all those who've found the sky was never truly their limit
