Take this heart of mine as a parting gift,

Take this soul of mine as I slowly drift,

Away from this terrorized modern world,

Where all my life lies have made my eyes blurred.


Take these eyes of mine and see the truth,

Take these hands of mine and feel my pain,

Away from this world where I fight and strain,

To live or to die that is now the new sane.


Take these feet of mine and walk a path,

Walk a path of your own making and say your goodbyes.

Take these ears of mine and listen to lies,

Hear the false truth that never dies.


Take this life of mine and use it as a guide,

See the evolution of society that likes to hide,

Take these things as a parting gift,

As I slowly start to drift.

Thanks Mike. After how much you write about politics, I thought you'd understand.

Be nice to turn and walk away from all the garbage, wouldn't it. Well said, Reaper.
