something

It must be something
to make a man sing
when he doesn’t have a voice
It must be something
to make a man choose
when he doesn’t have a choice
It must be something
to make a man heal
when all he knows is pain
It must be something
to make a man free
when all he knows are chains

It must be something
to make a man brave
when there’s no-one there to see
It must be something
to make a man fight
when it’s safer to agree

It must be something
to make a man save
when he knows that he could kill
It must be something
to make a man dance
when he’s ordered to be still
It must be something
to make a man laugh
when he really wants to cry
It must be something
to make a man live
when it’s easier to die

Artist's Description

Started as a 26 verse poem I couldn’t stop writing, turned into a hardcore techno dance track and then back into a poem again.
