1. PLATO’S CAVE – CHANTEL EMOND 2015

You’d grow even more divine, giving up your precious time.
But you were tighter than a knot; did he treat you good enough?

Am I in Plato’s cave?
Are there blinders slapped onto the sides of my face?

Do you resent the sweetheart that sleeps inside?
Do you resent what your life is going to look like?

Hang your heart up on the wall; can you really do it all?
Did the storm catch up to you? Are you getting older too?

Am I in Plato’s cave?
Are there blinders slapped onto the sides of my face?

Do you resent the sweetheart that sleeps inside?
Do you resent what your life is going to look like?

You sit watching dancing shadows, but I hope you turn toward the light.
You may be feeling darkness, but you’ll show your colors in the night.

Am I in Plato’s cave?
Are there blinders slapped onto the sides of my face?

Do you resent the sweetheart that sleeps inside?
Do you resent what your life is going to look like?
