    Where has God been? Is he focused on other men? Or has he seen the horrors he made? Is he too scared to leave his Pearly Gates? Has God abandoned me In my dire time of need? Am I just a faulty seed? Fruit of the poisonous tree? What hope can I avow That doesn't make me a sinner? The longer I live ...

    Her avoiding eyes Were bitter for a little while, And I don't blame her. As we exchange our distant smiles, We know we aren't what we were. The distance was too far, To the point where we didn't see the same stars. And though I called to make sure she was alright, She didn't pick up every...

    Well, I knew she was depressed By her oblong death stare. But I never expected to find her there, In the garden, feet off the ground, Hanging verticle in the air. Right above the daisies, With leaves in her hair. The red and blue lights on her skin, The jump rope tied beneath her chin. ...

    What is it that drives you And makes your eyes bright? It isn't the product And it isn't the light. What is it that flies you Across the country at night? Are you so blessed by it Or is it really your blight? Pay us more For the chores we do. I want that food More than you. Pay me mor...

    Tight spaces And the thrill of crush. The only thing that can Make your blood rush. Do you feel comfortable there, In that cage? Is it the only thing that stops your rage? Is it a blessing, or is it a sign, That it makes your heart race, Like you do, mine?...

    Let's live in the past Running backwards on the trends Far from the future And away from the end. I don't want new Because it's all just hate I want to know Steinbeck or Austen I don't want to be au fait. We can live history And we can whenever. Let's live in the past, And let's live ...

    I saw you in a dream Swinging on your rope in the mushroom trees Counting the colours of blood on your knees Of when you fell in the rainbow stream. Your candy hanging from your mouth, Strawberries dripping on the ground From the rope in the mushroom trees, Rocking and singing your pleas. ...

    You're a wasteland. And you smoke through your lovers Like a cheap cigarette. With each glass of scotch Comes a new regret. Your arms are like a cage And there are knives on your chest That pierce me with your rage And slay me at your breast. But no matter what you do to me, Threats o...

    Inspired by my sleep I am a soldier of a tireless war Hit by bombs and shots galore. I am dictator of an empty country Alone on my throne in misery. And in wake, a new day Out of the blood and fray, Dreading the light and mouth of drool. I am a student in school....

    There it goes. The one lasting thing, Leaving my head to ring, And an empty ambiance on the phone. It was just a stone. But it's a boulder now, Weighing my body down, And tying me to home alone. And then the car with high beams on. I'm far along, but I wish I was gone. It'll always be ea...

    Maker make me a strong man, And show me how to kill. Teach me to hold a weapon, And bring me to my thrill. I know I've lead armies And fought with sword and quill. I know that beggars aren't choosers, But Maker, give me my fill. I want to conquer the world, For good or for ill. But in th...

    When we walk the Salt Road Down to the old water mill, Where hands of children carry tears And go rolling down the hill, There's a monster there who's long and tall And he oversteps the mountains. When we walk the Salt Road, With pepper raining fountains....

    Thermopylae, This isn't where I want to be. But you crush me with your walls. This is where greatness falls. Thermopylae, Why are you inside of me? If this is how you hide from truth, Then I don't want to be like you. Thermopylae, These hot gates are a burning key, That I c...

    There's only one way for you to get by, Hard liquor and no will to die, Smoked buds and a starry night, Cracked skulls and gelignite, Revenge and a brutal fight. But there's only one way for me to get by. The sound of your chuckle, The sound of your sigh....

    I can feel my bones shaking in their rocky form Earthquakes rip them apart and tremble in me But aside from the the lack of my land reform I have managed to emphasize where I want to be And you shake, you tremble These quakes rip you apart You hold my head against your chest So I can hear ...

    I knew nothing of a way to make things end Using three simple words, but now they're dead I knew nothing about money changing men Until I found out that gold destroyed them I knew nothing in thought of your hands in mine But I would kiss them if I didn't run out of time...

    That was how you dressed yourself A master with a verdict Guns trigger anger in that of a crown A medicine you couldn't down The sound of it ripped your soul And pushed you to the ground In your hands, it's a different choice With the way that it points Not once did you say to e...
