Reason Behind Music

/Reasons Behind Music/

What draws me to music?
What makes me like the sounds of Nirvana yet over Blues?
I think Iím drawn to the escape.
Pop wouldnít be popular unless it was escape.
You hear of problems from artists,
But you donít hear the problems of your fate.

Exploit it.
Exploit relief.
Exploit peace.
Exploit belief.
You canít tell me it doesnít work.

Fake songs with lies.
Fake lies with truth.
Sell what truth you have.
Receive what faith you can from others.

/Do You Think/
Try to stay fine.
But you're dying.
Then itís too late but itís just fine.

Sick of looking for attention.
I remember what we shared.
I thank you for killing me.

Let me get inside your head.
Let me hurt you.

Do you think Iím a fake?
Do you think Iím blind?
How were you to know I was faking?
How were you to know I was blind?

I know I am a faker.
I know you see Iím blind.
My words for breath, and feelings to face.
