reverse psychology

I’m not interested in your ideology
it’s much too mainstream for me

did I tell what I did last week
how I lost my sight
only to fully recover by way
of a miracle

you keep talking about revolutions
but all I care about
is peace of mind
the kind you find accidentally
on purpose

in the meantime you keep
losing me in the fringes
that place in your mind I still
refuse to go to
