Song: There Is No Filter

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #2

Second song for FAWM 2018. Countryish? Like most of my songs, there's really no intended genre. This one will probably grow on me I think.

There is no filter
To catch the beautiful
That have been rejected by the meek
Thrown out of kilter
Tossed in the crucible
Forming the beacon the unsuitable seek

It seems you're perfect, but that isn't tolerable
We're trying to find someone for our hall of fame
That leap of faith is highly honorable
I'll see you out now but we're glad you came

Ignoring lessons their instincts proclaim
The tattered wise let their search carry on
But they're not searching, they're continuing to wait
They know you're twenty but think they need twenty-one

And insanity will thrive 

There is no filter
To catch the beautiful
That have been rejected by the meek
Thrown out of kilter
Tossed in the crucible
Forming the beacon the unsuitable seek

We're all imperfect, but that isn't tolerable
And no one's sitting yet in our hall of fame
And imperfection is hardly exonerable
So keep your mouth shut and remember your place

Probably a blessing you get to hide your shame
Didn't you just ask why we all can't get along?
I won't say again what the others have exclaimed
They needed twenty but they asked for twenty-one

There is no filter
To catch the beautiful
That have been rejected by the meek
Thrown out of kilter
Tossed in the crucible
Forming the beacon the unsuitable seek

There is no filter
To catch the beautiful
That have been rejected by the meek
Thrown out of kilter
Tossed in the crucible
Forming the beacon the unsuitable seek
