THE WAY I FEEL BY ASA

THE WAY I FEEL BY ASA

LYRICS

I feel like I’m floating through existence
I feel like I’m living after time
I feel like I’m forced to break the silence
Is that a crime?
Is that a crime?
I feel like we’re all following shadows
And shadows they don’t know where to go
I feel like I’m waiting for tomorrow
while today wastes away
It’s not that I don’t know
It’s not that I can’t see
It’s not that I haven’t noticed
It’s driving me insane
It’s not that I don’t know
It’s not that I can’t see
It’s just the way I feel
It’s just the way I feel
I feel like a child without a father
And mama tries oh lord knows mama tries
I feel like the world is on my shoulder
I wonder why, wonder why
I feel like I’m not the only one who’s frustrated
I feel like something’s going wrong
I can’t escape it
I feel like the destinies of those meant
To be the best
Are in the hands of liars now the world is on fire
It’s not that I don’t know
It’s not that I can’t see
It’s not that I haven’t noticed
It’s driving me insane
It’s not that I don’t know
It’s not that I can’t see
It’s just the way I feel
It’s just the way I feel
I feel like we’re not angry enough
That while we wait, time’s ticking away
I feel there’s gonna be an explosion!
It’s not that I don’t know
It’s not that I can’t see
It’s not that I haven’t noticed
It’s driving me insane
It’s not that I don’t know
It’s not that I can’t see
It’s just the way I feel
It’s just the way I feel

As I navigate though life
on borrowed time
i fume in a desire
to implode..
the frightening depth
of emotions
which shadows
the progression
of humanity
claiming indifference..
I have reached
an impasse
in this insignificant insousiance
Wich fustrates my mind.

Yeah I think frustration is the defining word here. You nailed it right there.

Nurse but a dimmer reflection
Of her patient’s deep depression,
Standing deep in hopeless hospital oppression.
Wants to make a personal concession-to quit-
To see a brighter side of life- that’s her now confession.

Wow, Monday. What an amazingly intense thought provoking musical prompt. This piece begs deep reflections before putting pen to paper.

Mama’s words, shadows cast over me
can’t really see, the world set on fire
time’s ticking, anger waiting on that
..explosion
just wanting to feel the way,
I feel
self-doubt…Is it enough
what is meant for me
heaviness on my shoulders
the weight of the world
mama please help me
something is going wrong
..broken silence
wisdom of my father
speak to me…

That’s a wonderful interpretation of this dark intense and complex music video. It makes one feel bad on so many levels and shows that life is not pleasant for everyone, especially the sick and their caretakers. Keep up the good work here.
