The Lives

The world around us is insane
And paranoid
And to blame

What we do is all a fault
Our souls trapped in a little vault.
Death looms over like a hand
To pluck us out at command.
Yet we go about our busy lives
Doing our best, each one strives.
We are oblivious to the lies
Buzzing around like little flies.
