Slept on but still she kept on
Up for days she weeps the sun on
Her cries don’t fall on deaf ears but rather those that don’t care
Slept on, slept on, she’s dealing with a loaded cannon
The more she gives to him, the more she dies
As she leaves her body for the skies
She is now the everliving ghost of what once was
What the hell is being slept on? No one has ever explained it to me nor have I taken any time to do any research on it, so like most I’ve made my own assumptions as far as what it means. I didn’t really think nor care about what it really meant until I started paying attention to Noah Cyrus and Labyrinth’s “You Make Me” video clip. If you watch the clip and think about what’s happening, you’ll realize that both Noah & Labrinth are actually helplessly being slept on.
We often hear about undiscovered or unsung talent that is being “slept on”, It is a very real and sad epidemic, but then again, it really isn’t all that bad considering that those doing the sleeping are most probably only sleeping because they are yet to be introduced to or are yet to uncover that which they are sleeping on.
Tragedy comes when being slept on is the kind of being slept on we see on the “You Make Me” clip… When one is being slept on by someone they’ve obviously given themselves to, someone who knows them but for some reason is no longer moved by all that they are, all that they’ve given to them, all that they’re still willing to give… Is no longer worth losing a blink.
They know them interested, they know them awake, they’ve felt their attention, possibly their love and with every attempt to resuscitate the spark, they chip another piece off of themselves, they lose an inner peace… They retrogress…
Like a moth drawn to a flame they are bound to burn out, until they decide to rise once more and let go and start it over again in Mexico.
