We are a mad bunch, you see Poets and painters and playwrights On the prowl for something to jump start our perpetual yearnings, our keen senses and cravings, on the quest for so much more than the status quo, of merely checking off just another day from our calendars
We are those kinds of people Who wish to reinvent the world Often cursing at our failings and insecurites While obsessively working to shape and sculpt our view of this planet To fit our own brand of imagination To satisfy our starving hopes and desperate dreams To foster vivid visions from the views that are vague And to wipe away The nightmares of old that cry out in us
We believe in make-believe We who are misfits to "normalcy" We rarely seem to fit into The "real world" Yet we know that this world is Pure insanity Stark madness Sheer perplexion Yet we are the ones suffering for the sake of our art Often misunderstood Many times branded as "weirdos"
I can understand the pain Of not getting my art right Of not seeing its worth Because someone sniffed at it Or scoffed at it Or blindly passed it by Many times, we want to break through And join the world of our works of art But we can't We're stuck in the middle of its beauty And nothingness
Yes I know why Vincent Van Gogh cut off his own ear
