The Wire

The Wire – by Nomi Veroczi (copyright 2005)

Adapted to Music 2008 at the urging of Dr. Ysaye M Barnwell

 

A pack of birds sitting on a wire, one falls off and the other flys higher

The rest swap lies about what they see, they all fly off cept for you and me

 

Life on the wire pick a side, life on the wire forego your pride

You can choose to wait and see, or you can become what you wish to be

You can become what you wish to be…

 

Stories told without a past, fabricated lies that were meant to last

I’m sure I have a few of my own, I carried them around since I was grown

 

Life on the wire pick a side, life on the wire forego your pride

You can choose to wait and see, or you can become what you wish to be

You can become what you wish to be…

 

Sitting still with the setting sun, I’ve got to live my life cause it’s almost done

Don’t wanna live like yesterday, gonna buy an eraser so I can play

 

If I listened to you I wouldn’t be here today, I found my inner guide and I found my way

Your comments are tainted with jealousy, don’t judge my life just let it be

 

Life on the wire pick a side, life on the wire forego your pride

You can choose to wait and see, or you can become what you wish to be

You can become what you wish to be…

 

Security’s an illusion that we own, until it’s taken from our home

Causes us to scrabble far and wide, till we find it’s deep inside

 

Life on the wire pick a side, life on the wire forego your pride

You can choose to wait and see, or you can become what you wish to be

You can become what you wish to be…
