Shutdown


To be seen validated...
Are the minds of the people,
In conflicts deep...
To hunt down,
A reason...
That got them in a hole,
Daylight can't reach.

They think a shutdown,
Will restore to find...
A connection they left behind.
To once again bring back,
Stability!

There is nothing like the feeling of a shutdown,
With reality dissed.
To make a shutdown,
Like this exist...
Prove to them a doing will not benefit.

They can't escape a doing without it being faced,
That anytime there is a shutdown...
To be seen validated,
Are the minds of the people...
In conflicts deep,
To hunt down a reason...
That got them in a hole,
Daylight can't reach.

They think a shutdown,
Will restore to find...
A connection they left behind.
To once again bring back,
Stability!

A stability once had,
Before the greed.
