I Survive

This dysfunction 
And stagnation 
Mingles with the need to breathe 
To invent 
some mirrored sociopathic event 
A turning point 
Sewing seeds of reflection 

2 steps in the opposite direction 
and I'm fully aware 
	of this pulsing in my veins 
	of this frenzied rhythm mating with my blood 
	of the need to force my throat
Into this incantation 
Chanting my survival 
Of all things 
chanting my survival 
of dark deeds 
Chanting my survival 
	Riding on the blazing tides of stars
Chanting my survival 
	Raping the constituted constructs of Mankind 
And chanting my survival 
	Until the ears of a defeated Liberty detect the sound...

Chanting my survival 
	Initiating vengeance demanded 
	Initiating a new era 
Chanting my survival 
	Surgically revived 
	And ready to fight 

I will win back the day 
I will win back my day
