darkness

yeah, it’s like that sometimes…….
————————————-

darkness

open my eyes in darkness
shaken not shattered
thinkin’ ’bout my testimony
as if it mattered
street dreams chasin’ me
huntin’ me
changin’ my philosophy
from sea to shining sea
what f.ck is happenin’ to me?
used to be so playful
optimistic
smiling and mischievous
they used to see me and be envious
now they pity me
fell from grace and landed hard
cushioned only by my sins
thought that i could walk away
thought that i could play pretend
but the shadow rose from my soul
and evil started beckonin’
the smiles i used to flash
turned to grimaces of pain
mama help me save me
this is a portrait of me
insane

when the darkness calls i go
where the darkness falls i flow
river of spirits carry me to my destiny
askin’ all the people to be patient
and remember me

i bow to a puppet master
enslaved by desire
my greed leaves me hangin’
hearing chants of “liar, liar”
pimpin’ false ideology
breakin’ down society
avoided lookin’ in the mirror
damn devil looked just like me
my senses have been twisted
and my purpose unfulfilled
at night cry me a river
as my body starts to shiver
bound and gagged in a platinum prison
held in place by the stage
mama daddy please forgive me
i’m fightin’ a losin’ battle with my rage

when the darkness calls i go
where the darkness falls i flow
river of spirits carry me to my destiny
askin’ all the people to be patient
and remember me

my head can’t take no more
and my heart has turned to stone
sweet ashes of my memory
are makin’ me atone
the love i lost
the fame i gained
the innocent blood
my hands are stained
is there a god who can hear me
as i wallow in despair
damn
is it too late
i think i cease to care
the veil of annihilation has covered me
obscuring my vision
hiding the last vestiges of sanity
i don’t where i am
where i’m from
or how i’ve been
the murky voices calm me
feel like i should let go
if i hold on
this danger may never end
losin’ myself
made of plastic
covered in chrome
lookin’ pretty for the people
but on the inside
i’m all alone
even the master has abandoned me
strangled by the wires of my vanity
useless for me to grieve
as i no longer truly believe
that my existence is required
on this plane of earth –
– and now i’m freed
because
when the darkness calls i go
where the darkness falls i flow
river of spirits carry me to my destiny
askin’ all the people to be patient
and remember me
