Written July 31, 2012

Here she comes
Walking down the road
To a machine gun refinery
Where she just won't know
Where she's going
Down the path of pestilence
Or on the wings of resilience
"Lord I just don't know
Where I'm going"

Knocking on the door
Shoot to thrill screams
More more more
And she just don't know
If she can take it anymore
Should she keep knocking on the door
Or should she lay down her sword
"Lord I just don't know
Where I'm going"

When the sun rises tomorrow
I'll be drowning in my sorrow
Yet again I've killed a man
Defenselessly at that
Born and buried in a sea
That just becomes our memories
That we will never get to see
Because of our selfishness
Watch me closing in on death

Playing in my mind
Relentlessly at that
I guess it's my turn at bat
To finally see what I am
What I've become is not a man
Oh violins
Take me away
I'm a monster anyways

Trapped in complacency 
In sickness, a self-satisfaction

A driven inaction
	In stubborn madness
A wish for her to see this life
From the inside
See what I see

The schism of the cut
	The weight of the hilt
		The blade of the knife

In balance we divide

Losing the me I used to be
In ruin of the kingdom I built.
A sinking ship
	On a violent sea.

Good Enough to Know

Walk through things that hurt you once
Mind-play distances, half done stunts
Turn away and off the path
Feel your way and crawl to ask.
Heartbeat pounding, muscles bulge
Vision lessened, do what you're told.
Mind played distances, half-known thoughts
Deep stirred feelings sold for nought.
Fists then clench and look around
Told and told and told again. . .
Hail the Goddess one and all!
Feel your way and move towards.
Never knew you, Where've you been?
Brighten up and Hail again!
