“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”
― John Lennon

i once lived a life
I once pulled a knife
I once rolled a dice
And it landed on a price
A price too high... So now i pay with my life.

I once paid a price
A price paid by the reputation I had made
That price was too high i was left with nothing.
I was left with only my memories... i guess that's something.

I once lived a life
Driven by strife
Drowning in my past
Living society first
And myself last.

A life once lived
A girl once lived
But that girl is dead
...She met a bitter end

I didnt kill myself. But i killed everything that counted. i was dead in the greatest sense of the way. i killed the side of me that was killing me.
