Control - Poem by Patrick Stefens

Your keeping in order
In a lie
You think its good but you dont know
Atleast you think its good
Because you do what your told
But you know that its black and its hollow

So just how deep do you beleive?
Will you take that?
Will you keep takign from it?
Can you get up from your knees?
Do you have enough courage just to see?
Do you want it to change you?

What if this is all a charade
What if its all a lie?
Though behind it theres a price you must pay
For all the blood that was spilt
That should have been justified from the holy and divine
So just how deep do you beleive?

It is so naive
Am I the only one holding on to what I belive?
If you've noticed I can see
And I keep holding on and on
