Desperate Escape

I'm scared to walk alone
Down the bloody street of this warzone
Everyone slumps and groans
And fall into their death, all still alone

I can feel their pain
Suffering on their face is plain
There's a risk of rain
To wash away them all, and I'm still alone

My lover twists beneath the paranoia
All my friends cringe at the thought of annoyance
It's building, soon the bombs will start their seance
Til then I smile alone

Corpses in red tape
Victims of the desire of escape
Crowds with mouths agape
Stare and feel nothing, all so alone

Smoke's filling the air
Drugs and arson together help them bear
The pain but they don't care
Who all has to die, crying alone

My best friend and I sit with the fan going
Remembering brighter days with the wind blowing
With every day, the flow of dreams keeps slowing
Til we're left all alone

So scared to walk alone
Not afraid to die, but to be known
As the voice behind the phone
When I say I'm sick of being alone
