Still

Let them all down
Let them all drown
You don’t have to go anywhere
 Slip to a frown

Let them all scream
Destroy all their dreams
Vain repetition, why do you care?
This isn’t your scene

Fly away, fly away and be still today

    1. Thanks. I was thinking "song lyrics" as I penned it. Hope you got that vibe.

  3. those are interesting lyrics. I wondered if you were just trying to escape the mundane crowd and save today for yourself

    1. Perhaps. I'd like to think it is a song about someone who is deciding that they won't dance or play the part for the sake of keep up appearances.

  4. The destroying others' dreams and letting others drown suggests a lack of empathy, but if it is just not participating or keeping up appearances then I don't see how this is letting others drown, but maybe it could be interpreted that way.
