In this world
where safety is an illusion
everyone is lost in confusion
and the darkest make all conclusions

In this world
where silence is louder than words
don't believe anything you've heard
and to tell lies you will learn

In this world
where there are no answers; just questions
what's a man without his lesson
and on your back you carry your confessions

In this world
where no one can go far
not all cages have bars
and people watch black skies with no stars

The author's comments:
I wrote this for my sister Taylor. This is sort of my idea of what goes on in her head.
