Observing Mister Potter

 

 

The Rise of Mr. Potter
Look at you
You seem so proud
You boast your openion
and you do it loud

You select those to follow you
and your selfish desires
You don't respect honesty
So you're surrounded by liars

They tell you what you want to hear
in the most careful way
They know that you'll analyze
every word what they say

Yet, They do not fear you
Perhaps you think they do
All they are doing 
is planning a coup

 


Mr. Potter's Struggle
Letting out a scream...
Swallow a tear...
little or no self esteem.
and a broken career...

Thinking a horrible things
Gnashing your teeth
The raven spreads its wings
and your underneath

You have the future...
forget the past..
you have a brand new start...
You have advantages none of us had
at least you softened your heart.

Think about what your doing
behind and ugly winter lies a spring
There are plenty of friends out there you've never seen
There is plenty of light in what tomorrow brings.

Violence ant cool
but what can you say
Matching wits with a fool
but no one backing your play

Now is the time you need friends
Bend with the breeze
Every person must spend
Some time on their knees

You have the future...
forget the past..
you have a brand new start...
You have advantages none of us had
at least you softened your heart.

Think about what your doing
behind and ugly winter lies a spring
There are pleanty of friends out there you've never seen
There is plenty of light in what tomorrow brings.

 

 

The Fall of Mr. Potter

Here he comes
The Lonely one
He's lost at things he should have won
Here he comes
He's all undone
He needs a friend but talks to none.

Hey mister don't you feel so small
against a world thats grown so tall
has your problems got to you

you think your different but your not
we've all had the very thing you got
an acient curse becomes a new.

There he is 
clutching his fists
his eyes are clear but yet there worn
there he is
his only wish
is someday he may be reborn

Hey mister talk to me I know
your up against defeat it shows
yet I cannot lend a hand
To watch is all that I can do
I know its only up to you
I walked the ground on which you stand

So when it all comes crashing down
lay your pride unto the ground
you dont need it any more
cry until the hurt subsides
if it happens again well thats just fine
you've been through it once before.


Now he leaves
and time proceeds
and soon another takes his place
another dawn
another song
another tear shall crease a face...


So when it all comes crashing down
lay your pride unto the ground
you dont need it any more
cry until the hurt subsides
if it happens again well thats just fine
you've been through it once before.
