"Shallow minds corrupted by manipulated televised images, lost in deception sightless to the truth, conditioned to believe fabrication threaded from broken roots. True emotion disgused behind masks of smiles hiding from the world and running from ourselves racing to portrayal images in shoes of denial. Justying wrongfulness seeking validation while battling inner demons enduring soul destruction. Open legs through the night, closed mouths in the day, price tag on your soul for only minimum pay. Searching for love on lust avenue, caputured by dark spirits and sold souls, screams from the misguided in the pits of darkness love becomes unknown... Walking into death hoping to alleviate the pain of life, trying to sedate your problems but they still remain in sight... Hasn't anyone told you, you can run but you can't hide? Internally suffering it's now showing on the outside.... Living in a world that's only real to you, escaping from reality is what your trying do... Fantasy land only lasts for a while until reality kicks in and then you open your eyes... What goes in the dark shall come to the light, everything you thought you were hiding is now in visible sight..
