Paradoxical Renderings of a Simplified Nothing

A Poem By Aalen Fideli // 3/24/2011

Fade into the crowd, stay out of sight, got to lay low in the nightmare

release your fears, wipe your tears, look to some one who won't disappear.

The secrets you hide, don't keep them inside, let them go-rethink your alibi

shadows grow, night comes slowly, don't try to guess-stick with what you know.

(Chorus) wake up, get up, stand up, think up, dream up, living in a world of the simplified nothing.

Open your eyes, pull on the disguise, the number of failures matches the tries.

Run to the ground, don't make a sound, get some fuel before you get around.

The day becomes light, are you ready to fight? Use your might only to make things right.

On with the day, mean what you say, if you are ready then be on your way.

(Chorus) wake up, get up, stand up, think up, dream up, living in a world of the simplified nothing.
Ideas within, you want to begin, ready to run-ready to make the win.

You want to fly, you want to sing, you run-you jump-you stick the landing.

You're king of the world, let the flag be unfurled, you da man (I think you like that girl)

moving forward, draw your sword, you might just lead friends-or you might lead a horde.

(Chorus) wake up, get up, stand up, think up, dream up, living in a world of the simplified nothing.

Fall asleep; shadows creep, dreams and reality combine in the deep.

Run to the crowd; keep them in sight, night turns cold-dreams turn bright.

Secrets inside, set them free, if just in your dreams be who you want to be.

(Chorus) wake up, get up, stand up, think up, dream up, living in a world of the simplified nothing… nothing.
