Oblivious

Chapter 1

I walk by it every day
Falls every which way
But nobody seems to notice

Falling into a state of disrepair
And nobody is there
To clean up all around it

They seem to think about only themselves
With nobody else
Trying to get them to do the right thing

Your eyes are your own eyes so go ahead and use them
It'll work kind of like cold fusion
With two things becoming one

Chorus

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

Procrastination will get you less than nowhere
Then proclaim that it's not fair
Hesitation was the cause

Have you gotten used to the odor in your home
And since you live alone
Your hands have become paws

Do you see the garbage on the side of the road
Ignore it as you go
Thinking someone else will probably clean it

People point it out and you say that it's not my problem
Others say that they've already got one
But it's just a different kind

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

Don't be so stupid
Don't be so arrogant
So arrogant

Don't be so blind
Don't be so oblivious
So oblivious

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

Nathan Jeremiah: The story’s plot is very well-developed with nearly no flaws. As far as characters go, it feels very original and the interactions between characters is completely realistic. Attention to detail is extraordinary, to the point that I don’t commonly see it in many published books. This read has tru...

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

ngonisiga: I am at loss for words in my attempt to descibe the sublimeness of this story. Kudos to you! I am so impressed at the way the story weaves itself from Navarre to England and back and finally to Sicily. You left me wanting more for this is the stuff dreams are made of in book lovers.

Radecki: This is one of the freshest stories I've read in a while. Author (Thetawave) has accomplished that rare feat of creating something original. If I had to label his writing style I would call it "baroque LSD".

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong. Being originally from Yorkshire myself the story resonates with me personally, but this is good writing. I look forward to com...
