It is basically a (Franz) Kafka experience, influenced by "The Trail". Quite delusional..

The Hall

"Hey John", said the voice behind me, "I'm right here"
and I answered him the one and only truth there is
"I'm not John sir, I need to go back to the hall, they got no one else to call"

As I make my way I cannot fail to see that I'm stuck
I'm increasing pace but it just getting far and far away
it all make sense when I realized the road is moving in the opposite way

And so I'm asking the man "what is going on"
and he answered "tell me yourself John
your legs are keep turning off and on"

"No way", I say! "I guess I screw up with time and space
or maybe not, but this town is a mess
anyway I'm just trying to get to the hall, the hall of the complete souls"

There're no signs here to follow
and the people are faceless I already know
expect only the unexpected says the bloody written on the wall

I'm keep getting backwards 'till I get busted by a cop
"can't let you walk throw, my infra sensor says you're really over the line!"
that's right! your mind got a stop sign and keep pretending that he's fine! "

"You can just die you know, John"- "of course I know
everyone can just die, and I'm not John!"
"and I won't die!" - " (laughing..) yeh, right.. do you always deny?"

"what are you talking about? you are a strange guy!
and how could it be that a black moon is shown and no one wonders why!
you all just hanging around and everything seems to pass you by!"

"you may think of us as fools,
but we all know it happens when the lies become more reliable than the truth!
"you're paying for your crimes, you've collapsing your world by confronting yourself too many times"

"look I just need to get to the hall ok.? that's all I know
maybe it's all a dream. all I want is to reach my goal"
(laughing..) the hall is your goal? your mind is so hollow..
or maybe you're so naive to believe that if you're chasing your dream, the meaning will follow..?"
