Writing in Cursive
Words and music © 2017 by Mario G. Di Sandro

We've forgotten our true selves
Who'll remember our past

Forgetting our own names
While reshuffling the deck

Like a concept revealed
A mystery understood

How can we understand
what we don't even know

Today's youth don't know the past
Words on a screen touching glass
Language unfounded to their brain
Picking up a pencil sounds insane

A lit-erary tool, so perversive
So I'll keep on, writing in cursive

The blinding light
will guide you on home

Death and destruction
Is ingrained in their bone

Look up all around you
So much truth to reveal

If but for a fraction
We're a mere percentage

Today's world don't know the truth
False promises of a life so dilute
Television screams out your name
The lives of before will never be the same
A society of fools, so subversive
Meanwhile I'll keep on, writing in cursive

I might be wrong
I could be wrong
But at least I know it
And at least I show it
Enough to make it through
Enough to face the truth

I imagine the world
Blowing up in flames

We are steering the boat
We are flying the planes

We have all of the knowledge
Yet we're so off track

Is it up to us?
To change our own course
