Open the old chest…
Leave all the rest…
Pick those pictures of us…
When I was a convict just…
Of hate and lust…
Throw it away…
And walk a new way…
Be blind and play…
Act stumble and say…
I am done…
You not the one…
Can’t you see…
I am not free…
Entangled in hope and belief…
At edge of infinite deep…
Living in misery…
Out of your history…

Cost and debt for life…
Thoughts that lurk my mind…!
I am trying to payback..
For all that I never lacked….
Burning questions, twisted philosophy..!
Conceiving monochrome of living apathy…
Vague purpose nothing makes sense
Looking to fill the void and absence
Never thought I would come this far….!
Stumbling, cracking, breaking billion scars!!
Stare in my empty face….
Home to cold dark space…!!

Living just to make to another day…
Can’t comprehend the play of night and day…
Confusing purpose with means…
Trying for things to please…
You, my contracted disease…
Feeding on till I cease…
Wrap it up…
Your game is up
It was your luck…
To be star struck…
Throw stones at me…
Remind me of me…
Let it be last part of play…
Conviction, redemption and decay…

The thought never leaves.

I know how you feel about this.
You cross your arms and you don’t say a word.
I’m trying to stay calm.
The thought of me trying, it seems so absurd.

You’re changing and leaving,
Your mind is bleeding.
I don’t want to say but
I still want to stay.

I know how you feel about this.
You’ve made up your mind and you’ve won.
I’m fighting hard for this
But I’ve got a knife and you’ve got a gun.

You’re smoking and drinking.
You’re not even thinking.
I know what you are and
You’re not who you are

But I know how you feel about this.
I’ll go home alone and I’ll sit at my desk
And the blades will torture my skin
But I won’t feel a thing ’cause you cut me the best.

You’re so different and
You were innocent
But now you’re a stranger.
I won’t try to change her.

I know how you felt about that.
You always explained how you wouldn’t be the same
But I know that it’s who you are.
You’re not just a clone with a different name,

You’re an emerald unbroken,
You’re tough and well-spoken
And I know that you’re hidden
Beneath this peer-ridden
Girl who’s been bitten
By boys who won’t listen

And I know how you feel about that.

I Will Make It Out

I have walked through such many dark passage ways.
I have been through many cold days.
Somehow and someway, I have found the way out.
But going along the way, I have to shout.
Many pain and tears burn me down.
Fears and terror never made me a crown.
But even without that crown on me,
I still manage to find a way out with the key.
Even if the dark palace still encase me in,
I will still find that bright light deep within.
But effort and strength I would need,
To pass such a difficult pathway that’s before me.
Nothing will bring me down, I swear.
Still if I was to fall, I would bring myself up with care.
