This Is A Metaphor G-ddammit!!

so find me already.
I mean, I'm sitting here
and I'm trying to tell you, "I'm lost,"
and you hear "sidetracked," or
"misdirected," or
"slightly confused"
and I'm trying to tell you
"I'm lost!"
I don't know why you can't hear me
maybe it's cuz my voice is fading as I
recede into the sunset
so it's inaudibility makes it indecipherable.
but you keep telling me I'll get there
and when I try to say "I don't want to go,"
you tell me to check street signs
and make a left at the light.
well I'm seeing barns and cornfields now
and I may never find you
because how can you give me accurate directions
when you don't know where I am?

that's exactly right. why do people try to guess at hidden meanings, when the simplest solution is to deal with what is.
