Beg again and Louder still

Beg again and louder still
the neighbor can’t hear the shrill
shriek you sound of all your thrills
whence you learn of the will
it takes to stand amongst
all your heroes and their enemies

The angry look hides the boy smiling
you’re so happy if they even think
it’s time to ask what he wants
even if it’s just a joke we haunt
until the true spirit of your mind
comes out from behind
that wicked smile of crime

Beg again and louder still
the cops can’t hear your shrill
shriek as you scream of all
the terrible things you do
as I stare this penance
down upon you

All my heroes and enemies
are exactly the same as fleas
and all the things I thought
were right and wrong
are all mixed up among
the rest of the plebes

The glazed faces shine like
reflections of an unspoken right
it’s time to ask what he wants
even if it’s just a joke we haunt
until the true spirit of their minds
comes out from hiding behind
those wicked smiles of crime

Beg again and louder still
the Gods can’t hear your shrill
shriek as you feign retreat
and pretend to have the will
it takes to stand amongst
even the indifferent who haunt

The blank stares behold nothing
can’t tell what emotions they plead
you can ask what they want or need
but they’ve no ears for listening
their eyes are blank their souls without taint
of good or bad or wicked or sad

Robots of flesh speaking for me
emotions are a computing disease
Feeling nothing finally at peace
the warmth the cold
they mean nothing
when everyone is just like me

Beg again and louder still
even my thoughts fail to bleed
I shrieked without feeling
if only for my programming
just a peep is all I can free
subroutines failing
