I want you to be, something you can never be,
Something you could never feel, deep inside of me.
I want you to see something; something you could never see.
Something you could never dream,
That’s always been inside of me.
Something someone said,
Stuck in my mind and affected my head.
Something someone should have been,
Fades away with apathy,
Something you will never be,
Is truly into me.
Now all I can do, is learn to hate something
Something or anything, nothing with integrity,
No dislike of apathy, for it has no reaction,
All I hate is all I love, for all it has is what I need.
Passion, reaction, satisfaction,
You used to give me all of these.
But you will never be anything,
When we could have been everything,
We chose to be nothing real.
But we could still chose to be something,
If only we could remember how to feel.
