Pathetic Fallacy | Mary Otogwae

Look up at the day’s sky and tell me what you see.
Do you see rainbows and sunlight?
Or do you see grey clouds and rain?

The sky shows our pain
The sky shows our pain

Pathetic fallacy oh you know me more than me.
Pathetic fallacy please tell me what you see in me.

Look up at the night’s sky and tell me what you see.
Do you see an array of star light? Or do you see see pitch black
valleys?

The sky shows our pain
The sky shows our pain

Pathetic fallacy oh you know me more than me.
Pathetic fallacy please tell me what you see in me.

The storms are breaking out, thunder shaking now, earth is quaking
now, cries are shrieking out!

The sky shows our pain
The sky shows our pain
The sky shows our pain
The sky shows our pain

The earth’s rumbling stops dead in its tracks.
Water seeps into all of the cracks.
The rain stops pattering on the ground
The storm has ended now there is no sound.

The sky shows our pain

Pathetic fallacy oh you know me more than me.
Pathetic fallacy please tell me what you see in me.
