Skeletons

The project wasn’t finished with someone holding a gun
The final work wasn’t produced with his head splattered on the wall
He had hoped so much to capture your attention with life of pages and pages
With beautiful colors, bright and full of energy on every maze hall
Turn to the distinguished guest sitting in a chair with his hands in the air
He’s a skeleton
He’s a skeleton
Just because you didn’t care to see the life that breathed thru his bones
Every part of the human is so delicately put together
The first time you fall to your knees in tragedy
You might understand
He’s a skeleton
You’re a skeleton because you didn’t value life
I’m a skeleton because I think I might have deserved a good wife
We’re all skeletons because we never reach the end without dying
You finally see the truth and in disgust the gun drops
It’s a good thing this time, it didn’t go off
