"No one dies a virgin, the world screws us all."-Hailey Lamoreaux


She’s an outsider that life’s never met
Inside her mind there’s no forgive and forget
She keeps her identity locked up inside
Inside her shadow is where she will hide
She’d really like to meet herself, get to know life,
Inside her troubled mind all that lives is darkened strife
Her sillhouetted image lies within the stone
The wall starts to crumble, the sillhouette gone
Captive in a low bitter air
She looks for her shadow, but it isn’t there
Her mind wonders freely, her shadow it seeks
Little by little her identity sinks
Into the darkness, back into the stone
Up above the darkness her shadow wanders alone
She begins to dissapear, her lonely mind cages her
Typical day in the life of a stranger
