Suspended In Animation

Suspended in Animation

To be lifeless and still
Watch the world passing by
Dreaming Forever
In a world of in justice

To be suspended in animation

To care for all people
But unable to help them
Musing forever
In a world of prejudice

To be suspended in animation

To yearn ends to conflict
Though you cannot end it
Withdrawn forever
In a world of war

To be suspended in animation

To covet life
A vessel for your soul
A body and conscious
From where you can forge change
To wake to a cause
And help the human race

This is your fate

Don't stray from it

Or be suspended in animation
