What does one do when the inspiration is merely sensory?
A mind set fast on satisfaction, a heart riddled by uncertainty
I found myself befuddled by the tragic rapture of reverie
Teacher, isn't this straddling lesson a tiny bit extreme?

I need an ear
But you bring your gavel along
I need calm, I need silence, forgiving eyelids, and arms that I can fall into
I need an ear

And you call yourselves open-minded
And you claim that you're quite tolerant
And you pride yourselves as anti-superficial
But what are these whispers I hear behind my back?

I threw back the glass not once but five times, destroying the cells of misery
I laughed and smiled the whole night long and never once did I feel guilty
Walk and walk and walk and walk and talk and talk and talk and talk - that's all I ever want to do anymore
Shot up the classroom, raped in the bathroom, but can't find love? Life's a whore

I need an ear
But you bring your gavel along
I need calm, I need silence, forgiving eyelids, and arms that I can fall into
I need an ear
