Into the darkness
No fear to be found
Echoing silence
Noiseless sound

A new beginning
That feels like the end
Blown away
But there is no wind

A storm is brewing
Yet the sky is clear
Sobbing and shaking
Without shedding a tear

My soul is drowning
My eyes are dry
I cannot live
I cannot die

A shattered heart beats
The pounding I hear 
Into the darkness
I will have no fear

Details | Lyric |

My skin petrified, mummifying my hand
upon pools of brittle ice
like curdled blood piercing veins: I watch
the moon bathing its flesh,
 
in crystal yellow, waxing a sheen...
my pores dilate as cubes slowly melt
when this fired orb heals from above

till its velvet breath climbs into my head, 
extinguishing limbo of a daze…until I convulse in joy
when chunk-stone changes into glimmered dew.



*I held ice cubes on my palms and was transported
back to scene of one night when a high fever drowned
my senses… for some reason, viewing the glory 
of the moon relieved me from delirium…

Why do people, want to cause
Other people pain
Where is the Love 
That will break the chain

Someone says something
Then it's tit-for-tat
I've played this before
We all know the score
Now who's up at bat

I think it's time, for us to play
The self healing game
Before there's no one, left
Around to blame

One that's more thoughtful
And much less insane
Let's reach for the Sun
And help everyone
Come out of the rain

All we have, is this fleeting chance
To get this right
No time for jealousies 
No time to fight

Don't say, that you're sorry
Don't seek to forgive
Just start here today
And throw it away
And learn how to live

Details | Lyric |
I see big changes 
Everybody's walking around
Heads face the ground
You made us all so very proud
The eleven man crew is one man down
Gone but not forgotten in Bath town.

I pinch myself at the thought of you
I wish you could have sat and talked it through
Now all we've got are shirts for you
Durbz 5 and I don't even like Man U

When we didn't have a job all day it was just us two
With no money we'd scrape and share a spliff or two
With that instrumental CD you'd freestyle like you do
And I'd never join in so now I write this song for you

Who'd have thought you'd end like this
I never thought you'd play out like this
That cheeky grin and the laughs we'll miss
You were a legend, please know you will be missed

(Chorus)

I didn't know you in the wooley hat crew
But the WESA boys all got love for you
now when I play in goal it'll seem like the defence has a gaping hole
Remember when you lobbed me and score that amazing own goal

If I was Doc Brown I'd come back for you
Jump in my Delorean and travel back a year or two
We all regret we didn't do more for you
But who could predict you'd do what you'd do

All those fit girls that you had
Something of a Jack The Lad
It makes us all so very sad
But I knew you and for that I'm glad

However life keeps moving on
And your family and mates are trying to stay strong
I can't help feeling that it's so damn wrong
You lived life to the full but it wasn't for long

It's so upsetting that you are gone
But in time we'll meet again and I'll sing you this song
When we meet at those pearly gates
You learn exactly what you meant to all of your mates.

R.I.P Durbz, Happy Birthday.

I'm so tired of the pain


In yesterday's paper,
I read that, another good man's gone...
I just don't know, what this world is coming to

Seems like, all the good people,
that have been here all along...
are gone without warning, taken, right out of the blue

Chorus

Oh, I'm so tired of the pain...
there's been suffering,
ever since I don't know when...
I just need some peace,
to help me make it to the end...
a little good news, 
to help this poor soul to mend

I've been thinking about you lately,
Lord, please help me to understand...
this world is changing fast, help me to find my way

Everywhere, there's so much evil,
is this, all part of your plan?
please tell me, that the Devil...will not win this day!


Chorus

Oh, I'm so tired of the pain...
there's been suffering,
ever since I don't know when...
I just need some peace,
to help me make it to the end...
a little good news, 
to help this poor soul to mend

Bridge 1
I think back to a time of better days,
when I felt so young and free...
now, I've grown old, and so I've been told,
that, it's better..to just let things be

Bridge 2
Well, I've seen some wise guys, that spin their lies
to me, they all look so strange
They use their guile, and they flash a fake smile
I can't trust them... to bring a change

Chorus

Oh, I'm so tired of the pain...
there's been suffering,
ever since I don't know when...
I just need some peace,
to help me make it to the end...
a little good news, 
to help this poor soul to mend

In yesterday's paper,...
I read that... 
another good man's gone...

I just don't know... 

what this world ...

is coming to!

Ive been trying to fill this hole in my chest.
I promised I pleaded but you still left like all the rest.
So here I sit once again all alone.
You wont even shoot a text to my phone.
So this is where I fail to stay strong.
This life of mine starts to go wrong.
So I fried up the brass.
I apply heat to get this bubble in the glass.
I heat the rock and watch it melt down.
I'm all smiles in the happiness that Ive found.
Before I knew it im drawing out of the silver spoon.
One, two, blastoff soon ill be higher then the moon.
You get that little burn in the back of your throat.
Hang on cowboy cause you just hit some bomb dope. 
Then comes the ringing in your ears.
Just sit back and all your worries and fears will simply disappear.
Don't worry about the lights fading in and out.
That's the dope coursing through your veins ya your high no doubt.
The color will leave your eyes.
Your body is engulfed in warmth and a million butterflies.
But now the demon has got you like a needle to thread.
Welcome to the struggle cause you got to keep the demon fed.
Now we've been up for nights and days.
Given up hope we surcome to her ways.
When she leaves you she leaves you feeling dead.
You cant silence the voices screaming inside your head.
Now you just look for the next high.
Cause without that demon you wanna die.
People will wonder where have you been.
Its no secret with those track marks up and down your skin.
Now you will know new lows.
Its a sad story but thats just how it goes.
Now your so alone and feel so close to death.
Just remember who did this her name is crystal meth.
Now if you could relive that day.
When your pal held out that needle tell what would you have to say.

There is a pain that drives insane
A pain so dark so deep
It robs my breath, it brings on death
And still in Shoal, I weep

There is a pain, my curse, my bane
That changes sanity
A pain that twists as it persists 
To mock humanity

The pain I speak, is mine to keep
And yet I must relieve
This heart of mine, this tortured time
I can no more believe

Those untrue words, like rotten curds
Bring pain to heart and soul
It’s all a lie, and here am I
To say, I am not whole

When love has died, and you have cried
And there is none to bless
When silence jeers, and your heart fears
That you are thought of less

When absence sighs, compassion dies
And you are left to mourn
How could it be, this travesty
When love has turned to scorn

For pain I have, there is no salve
There is no pain relief
I’ll go to grave, no one can save
From pain in time so brief

Clouds dim from a fevered night bare as skin of dragonflies’ grasp, and I pace along tattered leaves strewn on barbed fences of life moaning through a distant breeze: yet the candle burns inside my heart to feed dire hunger of jailed souls.... There, street women circle around in a furnace of hope...on a barren lane where mangled sparrows cry in despise; and my will to plod an inner odyssey rages, searching for some need to fill breaths of peace not for myself but for a biting desire I cannot explain, that my own pain hollers from the marrow... the kind that flames the stars and rain. John Lawless' Bite Me 6/8/2015 ~ inspiration from Les Miserables as gleaned from my gender counseling

“Dream in Dreams" 
My mind awakes to taste the tongues of those words you release. Yeah its speaks to me!
Am hungry for those pink lips merry and mellow I wish to soak in.  
Commanding and demanding those words dig in...undress your tongue of such tone oh twinkle toes, bathe me with lying lips that speaks me an undying truth.
The night burns black
My dreams lay still living a coward's dream.
I lay with my eyes shut, opening legs I lust of. 
So smooth as white streets with lines aligned to digest this illness I splash in ink, the injuries, your skin, I walk my pen on pure brown dermis. 
I want to rise with me in you, writing heads to come. A separate head is coming, I am cunning but take this white and erase sadness, pain and lies written on your inside.
I want to wine drinking wine, lip singing on your breast with noise.
Necks should be broken swords, flashing lips to melt in fusion forcing me in you! You in me!
Push harder and harder 
We shall become one.
I beg you unlock my needs, please me please!
The world is a war outside, hide me in bosoms that heats my love a global warming. Set legs a waiting bed I wrap this broken pen in.
I stay away to not fade away for every look I look at you these lips see and these eyes speak! 
Yes I become dysfunctional for I dream dreams of having you.
Why won't you admit?
I see the same in you.
I see potential behind fear serving a sentence beneath that skin.
I see you sitting waiting on he who is sitting.
I see you trying for trials I have tried.
Just north at the back of your head lays a mind so cohesive to mines.
We both dream in dreams.
Wake up, this is life.
Feel this heart beating
Hear these lips speaking
Watch this fear fading.
Let me lead this dream.

Home is where the radio is
Paradise is where I am
I miss his cigarettes...His mess
He said "I am smoking the last one"

I'm going to make him crazy
Rage, rage, rage
Rage, fury, rage
Nobody will be able to hurt me again

I will defeat pain with rage, my love
He cheated on me
He humiliated me
I am lost, baby, I am lost

But then with one kiss
I'd forgive him everything
He left me without a word
But he had forgotten his gun

I thought "Do i have to shoot myself? Or him?"
But then I found myself in front of a mirror
And then I started to brush my hair like this...
Stroke, stroke... My curls melted away

And then I thought "Why I have to reach exactly 100?"
Because in the hundredth stroke...
My hair was back to being straight
I looked again

He had no power over me
Baby, I have changed
I'm not that little girl anymore
I was a different person

I picked up the phone today
And I dialed your number
I didn't know what to say
So I hung up on the second ring
You see I thought that I could explain
But I just couldn't play through the pain
And you probably wouldn't have answered anyway
.
One drink wont make me forget 
It's gonna take me
About 10 more yet 
But I know by morning light
 your memory is gonna haunt me 
out of my mind
But I'm gonna try to drink you away
One more time 
Anyway
.
I'm haunted by the ghost of yesterday
Whiskeys' the only exorcist, to drive it away
But those Ol Demons just won't leave
They know too much about me they just won't go
And even though it only tortures my soul 
Sometimes this pain's the only friend I really know
.
One drink wont make me forget 
It's gonna take me
About 10 more yet 
But I know by morning light
 your memory is gonna haunt me 
out of my mind
But I'm gonna try to drink you away
One more time 
Anyway
And even though
They're killing this man
Sometimes they're the only friends I have that understand
There's no comfort in the pain of what might have been
.
One drink wont make me forget 
It's gonna take me
About 10 more yet 
But I know by morning light
 your memory is gonna haunt me 
out of my mind
But I'm gonna try to drink you away
One more time 
Anyway
And even though it only tortures my soul 
Sometimes this pain's the only friend I really know

He walked in with a load on his shoulder 
And a twenty pound pain in his heart
With the tears in his eyes he looked older
And he didn't even know where to start

He spoke of wartime memories
And the injuries that he'd sustained
Said sometimes he wished he'd never come home
Cause that's where he left all his pain

Some wounds never heal 
Some loves never part
When she said it was over and goodbye
That's when his world fell apart

In that letter he got on the front lines
It said I'm sorry I found someone new
I can't go on in fear and not knowing
All the sleepless nights I've worried bout you

Some wounds never heal 
Sometimes true love parts
Injuries of the flesh can be healed
Unlike those of the heart

The petals of a rose, they tremble and they fall
Just like my aching heart, my backs against a wall
so I Scream- but no one seems to hear me 
(and) I Bleed- but no one seems to worry 
(and) I Cry- but no one spares a passing glance
(and) I Die- no one seems to care

My mask, it melts away
as the flames burn through my bones, the pain it never fades
and its worse because i know the angels are not here to save me
everthing but you hates me
and im stuck with all this trapped inside
Im forced to sit and watch me die

Im in an empty room...
all hope disenegrates.
nothing left to do but get drunken, high
im willing to do anything just to get by

so I Scream- but no one seems to hear me 
(and) I Bleed- but no one seems to worry 
(and) I Cry- but no one spares a passing glance
(and) I Die- no one seems to care

My mask, it melts away
as the flames burn through my bones, the pain it never fades
and its worse because i know the angels are not here to save me
everthing but you hates me
and im stuck with all this trapped inside
Im forced to sit and watch me die
Im forced to sit and watch me die

V.3:
I smell the odor of remorse and hatred in the atmosphere...
Leaving me with scraps of terrifying fear
Waking up in the morning
With you under my sheets
Should I count you amongst the numbers?
Do you stand apart from the rest?
I must confess
Under tons of stress
Hiding this love
Like a thief in the night
I cried a river
In my heart, in my heart
Deliver…oh deliver
Me from temptation that’s been deceiving me from the start
I cried a river
In my heart, in my heart
We’ll be with each other forever and ever
Together, we won’t depart

Ch.:
I’m nothing to you…you came out of the blue
Living this lie…refusing my cries
Frozen inside and feeling kind of numb
I feel dumb…well, it’s a bummer…
Wiping away the pain 
Wiping away the tears
I ran because of fear
But I must spill the secrets
(I am here
Here I wait)x3
Here I stand…
I hope you understand…
I hope you can see…
I hope for you to see
To see what happens
When love is given
A second chance to bloom
In my heart
I slept for way too many hours
It empowers me – the thought of reaching out to you
Numb without you motivating me…
Don’t worry – it’s not over…

You can see my heart, you can feel my heart, 
Beating to the rhythm of yours
I will pass the test...take your time - I don't mind
I loathe the thought of losing you from the start
I'm left alone, doing countless chores
Here without you, I'm terrified, speechless & awfully blind

I grew up, watching you watching me. 
Does anyone hear my desperate pleas?
Can anyone hear my muffled screams?

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays.

Nothing in this world can satisfy the want to live, but the need to die. 
With each stroke, I feel alive. 
Instant rush, I’m feeling high. 

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays. 

Innocence gone. 
Now I’m left with these bloodstained hands. 
My will to live, buried in the sand next to the dead dreams of man. 

Your true colors shine like mirrors reflecting lights. 
Should have known better than to start a fight. 

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays.

(Verse 1)

This cannot repeat or loop around anymore, in my direction.
I've had the wind kicked out of my sails, due to depression,
and everyday
I hide away
and I'm not displaying 
the fight that I'm saying.
I'm down inside and sink,
I'm more flipping down than you'd think.
Lost for love and lost for laughter,
facing up to my fears always ends in disaster
with anxiety.

So I'm always down and doubting me.
A desert there's a drought in me
while rain downpours are drowning me.
The logic's leaking out of me.
A mist hides the positivity
you find in creativity.

From an infant right up to my last rhyme thinking I can't do s**t
life devours me,
I need to shake that habit,
cus in rhyme my talent's apparent so I won't bow out cowardly.

I'm wasting my worth,
but have a thunderous thirst,
to rediscover some turf.
Watch me now and you'll witness,
as I drift with the surf,
and wet the earth,
of this desert,
as I p**s on the dirt.

You just heard
now watch and observe.

When you left me 
my world began to crumble 
My mind was racing and playing tricks 
on me, because everyone was looking just 
like you. 
When you left 
so did my heart 
Like an heart operation gone bad 
there I lay flat lining 
My heart stop pumping 
the breathe in my body no longer exist 
Then reality kicks in and I realize 
that there is no life without you

He's without a cellmate
There's no guard with a gun
He's been here for years
But sentenced to none

To this place without bars
No windows or cells
May not sound bad to you 
But to him it was hell

This walk away prison
Where he goes every night
They'll give him last call
But should read him his rights

Cause he's lost all emotion
If the truth be told
Washed them away
With liquors of gold

As he sits on his stool 
Instead of a bunk
All the people in town
Call him a drunk

This walk away prison 
Where he goes every night
They'll give him last call
But should read him his rights

Now he's on death row
Not a friend all around
Except for the one
That he couldn't put down

Though the plea wasn't guilty 
And the verdicts not in
He can't appeal 
For all his sins

This walk away prison 
Where he came every night
They gave him last call
And read him his rights

I just want to say a few things, get them off my damn chest
Sorry I haven't been around much, I think I lost my head
Drifted from those social circles, I pulled myself away
Cus I was scared of life then,
Intimidated daily

It became compulsive, just to sit and stay at home
I watched the lights go out, as I sat on my own
Depression took its hold, that sucker pulled me down
I don't know how it happened, but I'm underwater now.

I'm so depressed that I'll just stay in bed again
But compelled to feed these addictions so up I get in sin
Close peeps I think I must of let them all down,
This depression got its hold, it's gona make me drown

I've hit the seabed so far from your reality
I'm swimming up now, but darkness sits in front of me

Shall I go out, or just sit in on my own,
I think I'll binge drink
And smoke and do drugs til I can't feel it

Yeah, cus I'm lost in this life and I guess its all struggle and strife,
If I had one wish I'd transform all this
I'm trying my hardest to force and twist it
But this dark sea sits all around me
There's no light here to guide me
For goodness sake someone please just come and find me

I'm gasping now, there's no air left
It is not my time to go yet!
This is my darkest hour and I've never felt so pathetic,

But I keep swimming up,
Is that air I've found?
My head's above,
It couldn't make me drown!

Give me another chance

When I think about,
my long search for love...
I think back and say,
what was I thinking of

All of my life,
you've been there all along...
I never gave you a chance,
but, you always stayed so strong


Chorus
If I knew then, all that I know right now
I never would have caused you the pain
or, I would have made up for it somehow
but, I didn't know, of all the love you had
all the things you left unsaid
I never would have made...you so sad!


Now, I know you,
and now I know the truth,
the love you've had for me,
you've kept hidden since our youth

So please forgive me,
for all the mistakes I've made...
I played the game of love,
while making your heart break

Chorus
If I knew then, all that I know right now
I never would have caused you the pain
or, I would have made up for it somehow
but, I didn't know, of all the love you had
all the things you left unsaid
I never would have made...you so... sad!

Bridge
So now my love, 
won't you give me another chance
to make it all up to you, 
let's start a new romance...
I promise you...
I'll never cause you pain,
never leave you in the rain
If only you would give...
me another chance!

I never had the chance to look into your eyes,
I guess you felt so much pain that you tried to hide,
All this love I was to give, it hurt my heart you lived,
For just a little while, The Gift, my only child,
Wish I could take back every thought that was against you,
Felt like it was my fault, I was stressin, I had issues,
The tissue, keep it comin, My tears they steady runnin,
This aint no normal something, through loss Im steady hummin.
mmmh, mmmh, mmmh,
mmmh, mmmh, mmmh,
I only see you when I look at photographs,
You came with much pain so we never had some laughs,
I was trying to get ready for you, so I could be a better woman,
But instead my heart grew heavy because, my gift, took his lil' lovin,
I know you are not alone, so many have gone on,
But mommas strong, and daddies gone...
To you this is my song....

The way it has to be

He feels so all alone...
living a lie knowing, 
his house is not a home.

He tells his friends,
that she hasn't really gone
now he searches for,
the will to carry on.

He looks outside the window
for a sign of her return
but he knows deep down inside,
that bridge has burned.

Chorus
He's all alone in an empty house
not knowing what went wrong
now he learns to live without,
the love she gave him,
and the way it made him feel
now he just cannot believe,
that, 
for now it's just, the way it has to be! 

He pretends that he is strong
but the truth is he's weak
he searches for the right words
and the courage to speak

Bridge
So he prays to God at night
for the will to live,
and the way to make it feel alright

He knows down deep inside
his love for her he can't deny
He tries to sleep, but he's awake
and senses the pain, as his heart breaks

Chorus
He's all alone in an empty house
not knowing what went wrong
now he learns to live without,
the love she gave him,
and the way it made him feel
now he just cannot believe,
that, 
for now it's just, the way it has to be!

He tries to sleep, but he's awake
he feels the pain, as his heart slowly breaks

Chorus
He's all alone in an empty house
not knowing what went wrong
now he learns to live without,
the love she gave him,
and the way it made him feel
now he just cannot believe,
that, for now it's just, the way it has to be!

This torment...
this courage
exposed...

I will be your
witness...

I surrender
this rose...

my soul feels
your pain...

my body exhausted
and drained...

I cannot weep...
for my strength
has surpassed...

this pillar I offer
a lifetime will last...

...for my wisdom to
you to your soul I speak...

...you are not alone...
let not your love 
lost in time of retreat...

...we find our truth...
in this pain - for it
is in pain it is ourselves
we complete...

a journey you need not
travel by oneself...

...hero whisperer is
the inner self...

Jealous games

You walked in, 
with those high heels...
and everyone,
watched you as you walked

Your little black dress,
fit you 
oh so tight...
attention was what you got

You stared at me,
as the men came around...
you flirted... with one and all

Bridge 1
And all the guys, they fought,
hard just to get close... they fought to get close... 

Chorus
Jealous games...
the one game you're so good at playing
Jealous games...
you know exactly how to play it,
play it...play it... play it

We met some, 
forty years ago...
when we were both, oh so young

You told me you were,
looking for your one true love....
but, you left me feeling,
oh so numb...

You fell into...temptations trap...
and expected...
I would take you back

Brige 2
but, all I could see, 
was my rainbows... exploding...rainbows exploding...

as you played

Chorus
Jealous games...
the one game you're so good at playing...
Jealous games...
you know exactly how to play it,
play it... play it... play it

I remember our time spent,
at half moon bay...
collecting seashells out on the beach

Listening to,
the music of Seals and Croft...
not knowing,
true love was out of reach

I was convinced,
you were the one for me...
I guess you never... agreed..

Bridge 3
So I threw away,
my rose colored glasses... my rose colored glasses


Chorus
Jealous games...
the one game you're so good at playing...
Jealous games...
you know exactly how to play it,
play it... play it... play it

repeat chorus fade

To punish and humiliate me is cruelty,
what I deserve can't be forgotten easily;
deny me everything until I ache,
until I come to realize my mistake...
and being honest, I'll swear
that everything you do is fair!

I can be sorry for the hard done,
and apologizing won't mean much;
you can resent all the hurtful words
I shouted in anger crossing the line:
I don't ask for sympathy, but making up
would be a relief from the guilty feelings!     

To punish and humiliate me is cruelty,
each and every blame I must take...
remembering when I lay awake
and thought of her instead of you:
all my fake emotions I can't undo! 
Whatever came over me?

More springs will come with new dreams,
but many wishes I cast on falling stars;
be in those dreams and breathe with me;
I don't deserve to be forgiven twice...
if only tears could wash away those cheats:
I would be free of this guilt that torments me!

To punish and humiliate me is cruelty,
I ask for some compassion, not pity;
I destroyed the trust you had in me:
your bitterness and anger can destroy me!

Dedicated to my Dad who lost his short battle w/ Colon Cancer on June 18,2013

I hate you Cancer
Your vile evil and cruel
You don't care who you hurt
I'll never forget that day
I'll always hate you for it

Your heartless Cancer
You took someone important from me
Someone important from others too
Took people who didn't belong to you
I hate you for it

You disgust me Cancer
You had no right to take him from me
He mattered more than my very own life
I hate you for taking my Daddy
I hate you for taking others too

I hate you with a passion Cancer
You took part of my heart with him
You took part of my soul that day too
I hate you for it
I hate you I hate you I hate you

I hate you with every fiber of my being 
Go back to Hell where you belong
I hate you, others hate you
Your not welcome or wanted here Cancer

I hate you more than his doctor's
I hate you more than God
I hope I get to witness that day
Witness the day you fall
And you will fall Cancer

You're gonna lose the battle one day Cancer
I'm gonna laugh and dance around your grave
You'll finally get what you deserve 
And you'll never be able to inflict your disease on another soul

They say good comes to those who wait
But what if the wait is so hard it tears you apart, makes your heart stop
What if there's no light in the tunnel, no one to turn to
It's crazy how the heart can affect your whole life
Can't breathe, can't see, you're so blind
Love is patient, love is kind
It's all a lie
It eats away like a cancer at the thoughts in your mind
Distance makes the heart grow fond but time makes memories fade
They slip away, every day it's a race to get back to the place where you felt safe
Where your soul was enslaved by the one that can take away all the pain
Now you feel like you'll go insane without them right there in your face
You'd give it all to go back to that night where everything was alright
She's there by your side
Smooth skin on your lips, softest kiss
Hands on her hips, pure bliss
Now you sit alone with clenched fists as blood drips from your wrists
You're filled with shame
You must carry all the blame for everything you can't change
That's right, suppress the pain
Just shove it all down
No emotion, don't make a sound
The urge is still real, the scars will never heal
You can feel people's eyes burn holes into your skin
The battle within, you can't win
It's a disease that consumes your whole being
Warped thoughts that you've been having won't go away like magic
Defeat this tragic war
Battle on, you are a soldier
Put on that coat of armor and carry the blame no more

Written May 31, 2013


The sun does rise
Over silver ships sailing in the sky
Rain on down on our parade
In a concrete jungle
The kids come out to play
Masked by this dreadful masquerade

A cosmic dance where stars collide
The kids and parents run to hide
Shelter from the enemy above
Who light up the sky with lightning bugs

The land is dark and the sky is black
Mothers pray the birds will not come back
Be it by barren land or vicious sea
Lord just hear our plea

The sun does rise
Over silver ships sailing in the sky
Rain on down on our parade
In a concrete jungle
The kids come out to play
Masked by this dreadful masquerade

To capture the attention everyone else gets but you
You do whatever you can to get it
Even if its bad
You continue to do it
To get the attention you never had
And the attention you will never get
You want the perfect body and soul that everyone else has
You want to feel important... special
So you seek for a better
Much higher thing
What you need
You dont quite know
But you decide that
You will do whatever it takes to make you happy
And sometimes
That means..
suicide
Sometimes it means
Shooting someone
Because the hole inside your heart needs filled
And thats the only thing you ever had
The only thing you see
The only thing that someone gave to you
The thing that got everyone talking about you
The thing that got everyone to even look at you
So if you decide to kill someone
You kill yourself afterwards
Because you felt lonely again
You felt that no one was watching you
That no one even cared 
Then you think about all the things that 
Bugged you
And you pull the trigger
Then theres no more you
Next time someone sees you
You will be on the news
Where now you are special
And important

Let the Deicide commence.

You're a voyeur at best!
Your vampiric heart is beating out of your chest!
And you have slayed the ones whom would love you for anything less
Ready to consume the final fragments of innocence,
And for you there is no forgiveness,
On your knees pleading, screaming to a tyrant in the skies;
The father of lies.

I will never be enslaved in your superiority
The people agree: jaded of your false dichotomies.
Know: I will be whomever nature intends to be
Apollo and I will share our dreams,
and you will be forced to see
your failure!

I know who you are...
Readily the first to present your scars
Chained by some despot or mental czar
An emotional homunculus in your mind, behind bars
Reluctant to escape - even when proven fake
Your demented mind - depths no one will penetrate!
 
...And you see me suffering
Not caring of any casualties
Just as long you recieve your safeguard of sympathy
So very wary of the masses and their Anarchy; Liberious ways

Solipsist - Is there no one you can see?
Even if she was presented burning?
Solipsist - Is there no one you can believe?
Even if Sophia was screaming?
Solipsist - Know you have killed and abused me
Imprisoned in your own  personal reality
