Catch Some Wide Eye

Down to the Number


you are glorious you
in all of your hip nonconformity
they will never break you down to a number
you are not a statistic

we all need patterns
the stability of belonging
the structure of reality
we need things to predict

you are transcendent you
in all of your eye-opening views
they will never label you as predictable
you are not a machine

we abuse cliches
we fear them
they represent unoriginality
they are the creative well run dry
they are the knee-jerk reaction
they are what everyone else thinks
but you and i
oh, you and i don’t think like them
we cannot be labeled or hunted

cliches are the red-headed step children
that we pretend never really happened

we all need patterns
the stability of belonging
the structure of reality
we need things to predict

predict my next move
and you own me, completely
you are glorious you
and i give you my world to forget.
