False Map

Our emotions
Why are they so difficult
All mixed up, scrambled
Believe something, and you’ll mess it all up
You’ll make a false map of your thoughts
Make plans and go along with it all
Your mind will think it’s all good
But your heart will beg to differ
It’ll start confusing you, sending mixed messages
You’ll begin to get lost, even with a map
Because the map you made is false
Created on a false interpretation
Can we do such a thing, in our own minds?
Of course we can, because of our emotions
They are so difficult, mixed up, scrambled
It’s best to just forget they exist
If there’s no mess to fight through
There’s no need for the false map
