Word Factory

In the silence of a grave
In the words of someone’s hero
A blue television screen
Words don’t mean anything
In this word factory
Replacement parts are free
Pictures of failed ideas
Only took me 15 years

All your words can not describe
The attitudes that lie inside
Subculture killed at birth
Got bored and slowly died
In the silence of a graveyard
Someone’s talking to himself
Oh! what a let down
Oh! what a boring let down!

Such a perfect face
Words are such a waste
let me paint a picture of you
And hang it in this empty place

Can I quote from your ideas
Hang your excuses on the wall
Devalued words
Blown up to mean sod all
oh! what a let down!
oh! what a boring let down!

Did you just say something?
It must have blown away
Got bored and slowly died
Forget what you have to say
Who wrote this anyway?

I’d rather look at you…..
