On The Brink Of Ruin.


Trying to move to the rhythm of life

Rather than the monotonous silent screams of death

Hanging onto sanity by a single thread

On the edge, so close to slipping away


Standing on two feet yet falling into black hole

Dragged down by the trials and tribulations of life

Hoping to see the welcoming beams of light

But being tormented by the demons of the night


Balancing inevitably on the edge of a cliff

All left worth fighting for fading away

Given up on hope of happiness to come

Dreams collapse like shattered glass


Stand your grand, do not fall prey

After the storm comes suns rays

Theres no need to feel like dying today

Smile through the tears, its going to be okay...
