The Ties That Bind

Outside my window, limbs with leaves are blowing in the breeze
Mosquitoes are making melodies, as butterflies dance with honey bees
They all seem to hail to me, they are inviting me to their tree
But my heart is bound to where you left me

Living a lie and hanging on to nothing
Although the truth is shown, I'm not trusting
I found out that there are certain things that you should keep
This way if they decide to leave, the cuts are not to deep

You see they want to get into my heart and mind
They want to feel what I feel, see what makes me shine
But I'm a lone wolf, attacked, and ran away from the pack
My heart and mind has been abused, I don't respond to affection like that

Haha they think that I'm playing a game, that I want to play hard to get
Their patience is wearing thin, they don't have time for my shit
My answers aren't answers, and my face is a mystery
But I am a walking disaster, why would anyone want to know me

In this universe there are greater mysteries, than the look and color of my face
I've declared myself Mentality, because I'm no longer bound by race
Connected on a mental level to bridge the space
Hoping that love would remain, but hate and bigotry would be erased

On this level my heart is an open door
You're welcome to see through my eyes as never before
Now when we speak your questions will suddenly be answered
We are no longer evasive, or a questionnaire dancer

I arrived here from a neutral chromosome
Slept where darkness met the light on the horizon
Broke bread with everyone declaring earth a war free zone
And with this love, we declare, we will never be alone
