Freewill Amon (18th Sept 1987)
Cry From The Deep
Like a raging volcano in the core of the mountain
Like fast running water in the holes of a fountain
Like the vibration from Sagem phones
So excruciating! I'm caught so deep in the bad zone
I am been blown around by the wind
And 'Blown In The Wind' is the song I sing
I'm no different from smokes in the air;
I'm neither here nor there
'This world is crazy! ' That's what I say outloud everyday
Can somebody save me? ! I'm so filled with dismay
If I take my life, where would I go after here?
I beg of life, to at least try to be fair
'Life in the hood, is all good for nobody'
What a huit would I give if I have the strength to survive it?
If I were a soldier, I would have become a general
But I've been praying for an accident that will buy me a funeral.
I've done all there is I know I can do
I feel like I'm in hell, but none can tell what I'm going through
I have walked the walk and have talked the talk
And that brings me to the conclusion: the world suck!
If only I have right over my life
If only I can just borrow wings and fly
If a solution can just prove that I've been heard
If I can stop feeling like I'm neither in a dream world nor in the real world.
