Your Egos Are Bigger Than Your Hearts

Noah Silliman@noahsilliman

Why must we continually hurt each other
Why do we feel the need to put
our needles in their eyes
As if the pain we feel will be lessened
by the pain we inflict
As if their pain will absolve us of our sins
And we know it will not
And we know it’s wrong
Yet we are helpless to stop ourselves

All because
our egos are bigger than our hearts
While remaining as ignorant as those
knowing nothing, faking being smart
And you know in the silence of our mind
We live with a mountain of regret
Though with every opening of our mouths
with pretense we seem to forget

Somehow the pain lingers on
Somehow the memories of yesterday
seems eternally long
And with each word spoken
we know it’s another truth broken
Over and over again we ask, why me
Why can’t they just let us be

Finally peace arrives on the horizon
just long enough to say
here comes the children at devil’s play
All because our egos are bigger than our hearts
While remaining as ignorant as those
knowing nothing, faking being smart

But we know tomorrow will come
and nothing will break our hearts
And we know tomorrow will come
and your evil plans will be a non-start
Our sun will shine again
no longer darkened by your fake smiling

Though never been what I require
your misery will set you on fire
burning the very pastures in which
you were to retire
As we walk off into the sunset
of our desire

All because your egos are bigger
than your hearts
While remaining as ignorant as those
knowing nothing just faking being smart
