This wall is my canvas • making shadows of monsters that swallow me without chewing • I think of you • Your eyes held remnants of the yellow sun and memories of the stars • it flowed with the rhythm of these tracks • this train could be so lonely • it all depends on whether your coming or going • metal cylinder of sorrow • melody of Cinderella's tomorrow's • I think of you • The pills and potions only last so long • These veins are shot with only one left in the chamber • the opiates were appropriate • now we've graduated to much less things • broken thoughts and sleepless nights • keeps the demons full but ourselves starving • Thank God reality bites • but it's not to you've swallowed the truth that you can fully digest then finally progress • when pain speaks • Hope shouts • Do not forget creation • the Creator has written across the skies • I think of you • Carnegy Hall and high school mess halls • it's all the same • except those teenage punks hold a little more imagination • Until the machine has firmly planted its hooks • who will be left to lay their body between the gears • so the nations can't ignore the sounds • of twisted metal against young flesh • a new dawn • deconstructing the order • as the chosen dreams awake • manifesting all that is and all that is to come • the chaos of curiosity • peacefully rebuilding a world in pieces •  they can't take the sky from you • so live to be alive and die knowing you lived • The brokenhearted • the outcast • the bullied • the abused • the fatherless • The widow • The gays • The fearful • The Druglords • The drag queens • The girl turning tricks • the dancer who strips for paychecks • The smokers • The Midnight tokers • The bipolar • The high rollers • the painter without his brush • the writer without his pen • the entertainer without his stage • The dreamer • I think of you.
