The Clockwork Of A Writer's Mind

Lyrical Poems

Here is a collection of some of lyrical poems. Some of them date back almost ten years, and many of them, have been turned into songs, which I have yet to record. Thanks for reading, and enjoy the poems.

Outcast:

I tried, and I failed. Your agenda's been prevailed.
You do what you can, to push me from this world.
I searched, but I'm lost. I've been double crossed.
You do what you can, to just alienate me.
I'm not one to conform, regardless of the pressure.
Maybe I'm a little naïve, and a bit immature
.
I don't care, this is who I am. You can’t change me.
I don't mind, I'm fine with it. So just let me be.


All my life, I'm always the outcast.
I can't change it, the past remains the past.
You've said it right, I'm nothing like you.
I don't fit in, but maybe I don't want to.


I climb, but I fall. You think you know it all.
You do what you can, to exclude me from life.
I hide, but I'm found. You like putting me down.
You do what you can, to make me feel numb.
I'm always the square peg, in a round hole.
Hate me if you want, 'coz at least I have a soul.
I don't care, I don't give a damn. What you think of me.
I don't mind, I'm fine with it. I can see your jealousy.


All my life, I'm always the outcast.
I can't change it, the past remains the past.
You've said it right, I'm nothing like you.
I don't fit in, but maybe I don't want to.


And they're all the same to me, they're all a bunch faceless beings.
Almost mechanically made, I wonder if they even have feelings?
So say what you want, but in time you will find.
I'm nothing like you-, coz I'm one of a kind!


All my life, I'm always the outcast.
I can't change it, the past remains the past.
You've said it right, I'm nothing like you.
I don't fit in, but maybe I don't want to.


Yeah you've said it right! I'm nothing like you.
I don't fit in, but I never want to...

The Medicine:

I feel pain. I feel stress.
I feel worn. And now I've been put to the test.
My life is a maze, and I'm so lost within.
There's too many routes, where should I begin?
The tension starts to rise, and hope has worn thin.
So they say that I, should take the medicine...

 But I don't want, to be sedated!
And I don't want, to be victimised.
Coz I don't want, to be medicated!
You think I'm insane, I see it in your eyes... 

But I will take the pain, I'll learn to get by.
It's not always easy, but somehow I'll try.
I don't need the pills, not even when I fall.
Because I'd rather feel something, than nothing, at all.

I feel hate. I feel lost.
I feel down. And now hope comes at a cost.
There is a demon, buried deep under my skin.
It's too late for me, my blood is filled with sin.
I'm about to break, I can't take it all in.
So they say that I, should take the medicine...

But I don't want, to be sedated!
And I don't want, to be victimised.
Coz I don't want, to be medicated!
You think I'm insane, I see it in your eyes... 

But I will take the pain, I'll learn to get by.
It's not always easy, but somehow I'll try.
I don't need the pills, not even when I fall.
Because I'd rather feel something, than nothing, at all.

I know it's not normal. I know it's not right.
But I won't take the pills, be prepared for a fight.
Yeah I know it's not normal. And I know it's not alright!
But I won't take those pills! Be prepared for a fight!

But I will take the pain, I'll learn to get by.
It's not always easy, but somehow I'll try.
I don't need the pills, not even when I fall.
Because I'd rather feel something, than nothing, at all.

I'll Make It Up To You:

Regret begins to surface, and plagues my dreams.
My authority and pride, is torn at the seams.
The way I've treated you, is unforgiveable.
But I'll mend what I broke, because I'm giving it my all.

So give me a chance, to erase what I've done...

It will never be enough, to simply apologize.
Death is edging closer, I see it in your eyes.
So for all I've done, and for all I've put you through.
I rewrite the past tonight, and I'll make it up to you.

I've done you wrong, you must feel betrayed.
But even through my cruelty, you have always stayed.
For the pain I've caused, I am ashamed.
Hate me if you like, I deserve to be blamed.

But give me a chance-, to erase what I've done...

It will never be enough, to simply apologize.
Death is edging closer, I see it in your eyes.
So for all I've done, and for all I've put you through.
I rewrite the past tonight, and I'll make it up to you.

When I heard the news, I'd never cried so hard.
Every scrap of self esteem, died inside my heart.
My past is a burden, something I can't undo.
But even with our history, I don't want to lose you-! 

It will never be enough, to simply apologize.
Death is edging closer, I see it in your eyes.
So for all I've done, and for all I've put you through.
I rewrite the past tonight, and I'll make it up to you.

So give me the chance, the erase what I've done...

Critic:

It's one of those days, when you become a stranger.
It'
s just a premonition, but I can sense the danger.
There's so many faces, but none I recognize.
I'm not welcome here, too many judging eyes

Too many interrogations! Too much aggravation!
And you wonder why, there's so association.
Too many of your lies! Too many of these fights!
And I'm always found guilty, even with an alibi.
Can't you see? I'm living just like you.
We're both human, although I'm nothing like you.

It's one of those nights, just lost in the shadows.
It's like I'm being watched, target needing an arrow.
Aware of the faces, and they just gaze.
Fighting for my life, running through the haze… 

Too many interrogations! Too much aggravation!
And you wonder why, there's so association.
Too many of your lies! Too many of these fights!
And I'm always found guilty, even with an alibi.
Can't you see? I'm living just like you.
We're both human, although I'm nothing like you.

The fusion, is getting to me.
Ignoring these conspiracies.
I'm losing, my integrity.
Don't you want my company?

Too many interrogations! Too much aggravation!
And you wonder why, there's so association.
Too many of your lies! Too many of these fights!
And I'm always found guilty, even with an alibi.
Can't you see? I'm living just like you.
We're both human, although I'm nothing like you.
