Exoskeleton Life

The idealistic horrors, go dancing through my heart
Pulling my muscles and my veins apart

Dancing with demons, I spin in a trance
My feet and my legs step to the beat of this dance

Under my flesh, the weakness seeps through my skin
Poisoning my insides --- making my life the deadliest sin

Dizzy and brainwashed, I stop the eternal spinning
Feeling the lessons --- in what’s left of my brain --- slowly imprinting

Lost and alone, left for dead and deprived
Learning this new path --- mistakenly arrived

The emptiness and unconsciousness of my exoskeleton shell
The lost and forgotten Isle of Nothingness I will dwell

The soulless inside of the deepest parts of me
Something that not even the oracle could foresee

The ever-changing fate that constantly changes in my life
Prevents me from being his perfect wife

The demons I face on my journey through this life
Finds myself around corners of nothing but pain and strife

The fiery flames leap up and they lick
Hitting the pool balls of my life with a cue stick

The damage it scars me deeper everyday
The variety of chaos and the colorful array

Chained to this life --- going nowhere fast
Leaves all of my other options completely unsurpassed

So alone I wander through this bottomless pit
Because walking in this life right now I’m definitely unfit…
