Apathy

Apathy, you stole my directions
left me in neutral without compass or trail
Apathy, I’m in a jail cell of comfort
you hold the key, and I never set bail

Apathy, your thumbprint’s on my soul
robbed me of purpose, like a thief in the night
Apathy, you impaired my vision
now I’m blind to darkness, indifferent to lightYou burned the letters I could have sent
took the meaning I could have meant
you pawned conviction for an easy chair
and left a man who could have cared
Apathy, you sold me into slavery
chains of inaction bind the wind and the sail

Apathy, you left me without questions
all the answers come up lifeless and stale
You spit out the seeds I could have sewn
rusted the horns I could have blown
you pawned conviction for an easy chair
and left a man who couldve caredApathy, I traded in all triumph
burned the soapbox, locked the the front door
your sweet apple of peace
shiny red yet rotten to the coreYou sunk the ships I could have sailed
leveled the walls I could have scaled
you pawned conviction for an easy chair
and left a man who could have cared
