She peacefully sleeps through her endless nightmares
She journeys through the darkness seeking only light
The days drift by but for her... Only night
The machines breathe for her like a metronome
Through these sterile halls her spirit roams
The day has finally come to let her go
As my hand reaches the plug, she screams NO!

The steeples tower over our flags
Dissent is not allowed here
How dare you not say the pledge!
Shots ring out in the crowded halls
Our children fall; victims of the sickness
We awaken from fractured dreams of something resembling freedom
Our electronic opinions hang like public laundry on a line
Eyeless sheep file out of the pews and into the voting booths
And the gods recklessly direct baseless wars against ourselves

Poverty drags me through the dust as a willing participant
Money flows through my fingers like water
I dig out slowly from the holes I have created
The rope swinging seductively
The silence of all my ghosts are deafening
That little voice of reason whimpers in the dark
All my doors are closed as I slam them with defiance
And the hungry winds swirl around me once more

Her forked tongue slithers from her mouth like two razor blades...
I hide behind the corner shivering with trepidation...
Her love. Her love is nothing more than tattered hollow sentiments;
lost in translation long ago.
She weaves a tapestry of vague riddles and lies; seducing me...
Incising me with small breaths of fond memories.
That light that resided behind her eyes has been stolen and
replaced with nothing.
I am now only waiting...
Waiting for her attack...
