Sometimes wish I had the power to teleport
Go to bed and wake up somewhere else
Go to bed after a long, fruitless day and,
Wake up in some strange country
I want to escape my reality, just for a while
For a moment, run away from this old boring life
A hostage in my own skin, on my neck got a knife
Fear in my heart, scared of tomorrow
Voices in my head, harsh words
Maybe they’re right, I will fail like dad
Or like my step-brother, I end up mad
Broke and homeless, she leaves me for a better man
Don’t wanna end up lonely, living like an outcast
Don’t want my kids to resent me for letting them down
For leaving them to be raised by a stranger
Wish I could teleport
Wake up in this beautiful city, or in some country home with friendly faces
Hope they’ll understand my english and maybe my swahili, don’t wanna end up with a bullet in black ass
Murdered in cold blood and buried in somebody’s backyard, couldn’t teleport back to reality in time or,
Bundled in some black hole in some prison, someone couldn’t comprehend my situation
“Who are you?
Where are you from?
And how did you get yourself here?”
I know it’ll have it’s share of challenges but still wish I could teleport.
