Oblivion

7eb9f01782704d6ce95c81bfd8f570e8
We’re strangers in the crowds
Oblivion lies in our minds
We seek the beats that gave us life
We seek the time that endured us to be nothing but ourselves inside
Cause now, we are only an opaque glass where no light can shine
Obscurity reigns everywhere around

We’re strangers in the crowds
Oblivion lies in our minds
We hide in noise, we kill the thoughts
We want nothing other than a belief to hold on
When time comes we’ll give it all again for a single dream in which we lose
And then we’ll wonder, when did our hearts die…

We’re strangers in the crowds
Oblivion lies in our minds
We grab the snow, the season lights and replace all we might still have in us
Our steps mingle among hurried souls on rowdy streets in night
We want to find the missing version of what we once were
And ask why is that we no longer feel anything in us.

  3. Beautiful but sad at the same time. I hope that those people won’t be strangers at some point in this crowd. And that they will feel reborn.

  7. We know
    this passing of what we once were
    will pass
    when the one who lives forever
    whispers now
    is your time.
    Come on now, blackboard;
    its not really as bleak
    as all that.

  9. Powerful and thought provoking. Sometimes we feel lost in the crowds. Sometimes we lose our own identities yet we all remain moving and all remain connected 🙂
