The day the stranger came, we bade
goodbye to our mad sanity,
Our high hopes for humanity
traipsed off in treachery’s parade.
He took our trust and trussed us up
with it; a prison in our heads,
We gave him shelter, gave him bread,
and with our souls, he filled his cup.
The stranger came, and to our shame,
our minds were fooled, our hearts were bent
by lies, ugly and fraudulent -
So was it us who were to blame?
A thief may take, but truly, it’s the take
that thieves, that steals the most,
Like cancer, leeching from its host,
it festers from within... we break.
How fast our salty structures fell
and smashed, the day that stranger came,
In gutting us, like doe-eyed game
for cash... he crushed our will as well.
