Scott Edward Cole: Music

Worthy

(Cole)
You lift the veil
of your pretensions.
Present yourself
as who you are.

You purify your thoughts
and your intentions.
Who would have thought
you'd come this far?

But you were wrong
to assume they were seeing
that you were honest
in your heart from the beginning.

and you were wrong
to assume they were agreeing
that you were worthy
of the praise you were winning.


You test your wings
with no protection.
It's what you think
will make you whole.

Fears come at you
from all directions,
with each one
chipping at your soul.

And you were wrong
to assume they were seeing
all along they had you
fooled into being
someone worthy of
the praise you were seeking.

someone worthy of
the praise you were seeking.
