The stop button

The stop button

I look around
Look high
Look low
Left and right
I look around
But it’s nowhere
Nowhere to be found

The stop button
That little button
Found on mos’
Electronic devices
That stop button
That little button
Where
Oh where
That stop button
The stop button

I go through the day
Through the motions
Living
With a mask
Pretending every moment
I go through the motions
Living through the day

The stop button
That little button
Found on most
Electronic devices
That stop button
That little button
Where
Oh where
That stop button
The stop button

I live in this world
Whether I like it or not
Or not
I wish there were a way
To just pause
Yet here isn’t… isn’t… isn’t… and
I live in this world

The stop button
That little button
Found on most
Electronic devices
That stop button
That little button
Where
Oh where
Is that stop button
The stop button

I still live in this world
Going through the motions
There ain’t any stop button
No way to just pause
Unless I get off the tracks… off the tracks
Which isn’t the option
There ain’t any magic potions

The stop button
That little button
Found on mos’
Electronic devices
That stop button
That little button
Where, oh where
Where, oh where where where
That stop button
The stop button

That stop button
That little button
That doesn’t exist
To life
That stop button
Going through the motions
There ain’t no magic potions
That stop button
It’s nowhere to be found
N’matter how I look ’round
That stop button
The stop button

So I live in this world
Continue going forward
Will this mask ever
Be reality
Reality…. reality
Where
Where, where, where
That stop button
It ain’t anywhere
Not on life
No stop button to life
That stop button…
That stop button
button… button… button
That stop button

Maybe for
That stop button
Isn’t needed
(Oh, but it is t’is t’is)
The stop button
It’s nowhere
That stop button
The stop button

    1. Thank you for always having been here for me.
      For caring. For being. For doing.
      For showing me that I’m not always alone (even though yeah, I am).
      For proving it’s possible by doing it.
