It starts out,
With just three simple words,
“I dare you”
Then your heart beats rapidly,
Sweat oozes from all pores,
Adrenaline courses through the entire body.
You get so worked up,
That you don’t even care if you break the law.
You’d go to Mars,
If it meant you got to feel this way,
To feel alive.
The others pick your poison,
Now you’re just the blind follower,
Simply another calf being lead to the slaughter.
You’re stuck with the awful deed,
But you still get excited.
The feeling is the greatest in the world.
The notion of ecstasy,
Of bliss,
Makes you invincible.
And you can’t help but to smile,
As they carry you away
With your hands bound and head spinning,
Lights flashing in the distance
To a bleak and austere future.
