Devil’s Monkey

Posted by: Awsiv

I’d posted this one on my blog some time back. Here, i’ve changed the title and some lines. Please read twice before drawing any conclusions…or…maybe…you don’t have to   :wink:  …just a thought…Cheers – to Life!! 

a curse that devil has put upon me
a path that has been shown to me
the brighter it gets, the lesser i see
the larger the crowd, the more i feel lonely

every heart i touch, turns into a rock
my words have lost, the power of comfort
i try to laugh, but i just get hurt
no i’m not complaining, not lamenting!
it’s just a way of life – that i’m used to living
the brighter it gets, the lesser i see
the larger the crowd, the more i feel lonely
the tighter the knots, the more i feel free
it’s not a crime, not a disease
just that – devil’s put a curse upon me.

yes, the devil’s put a curse upon me
and it’s been so long since i’ve been singing
but no one seems to have noticed me
this ugly face of mine, is on display -
for you all to mock
and i can’t get a penny or a buck.
forever in this turmoil i am stuck
yes my friends,
the devil’s spit upon my luck
for every heart i touch, turns into a rock
my words don’t comfort – they hurt!
Well, i tried to walk, i got to crawl
and every time i stood up i had to fall.

No i’m not crying, not lamenting
its just a way of life that i’m used to living
the brighter it gets, the lesser i see
the tighter the knots, the more i feel free
call it my bad luck, call it irony
but i’ve been living life, on this debris
yes my friends, the devil’s put a curse upon me

i tried to walk, i got to crawl
and every time i stood up i had to fall
but will it all end if i cease to fall?
will i be paralyzed if i choose - not to crawl?
well i’m not so clever, but i’m not that dull
when there’s less to see, i see it all
the cowardice of women and men,
each one finds some other to blame
burning each day in this envious flame
[while i sit here,
dreaming,
every now and then,
of the touch of bliss that would wash me clean]
