Wind

The wind against my face
With no one around
To see I’m part of the human race
Going at my own pace
I don’t care for empty platitudes
I don’t wanna talk to you

I’ll be alone in my own mind
And I don’t care cause I got the time
I don’t keep on your watch
I don’t walk the line
Not so linear
In this head of mine

I’m always in the wrong place
For I don’t fit in, anyway
So what do I care if I step behind
Never keeping up
With you men in your ties
It’s just a noose around your neck

I’m running loose
Cause, what the heck
I don’t need those shiny shoes
I won’t slick my hair back
And look like you

I’ll listen to Bob Dylan
In my car with the window open
On a winters day
Cuz we got the blues
And only the wind knows what to do.

    Really like this whole stanza: “I’ll be alone in my own mind
    And I don’t care cause I got the time
    I don’t keep on your watch
    I don’t walk the line
    Not so linear
    In this head of mine”

    It’s not so linear in my head either 😛

      Glad you liked it. Cool to get feedback.

      Linear is too restrictive.
