A house in shambles
A man in the ramble 
Losing ties with everyone who’s ever loved him
All for this idea of family 
An implemented sort of invention for the ones before he
And before them...
Terror
So who could ask any better?
Who would allow for anything different
And like the withering champion
His best man 
Makes an announcement 
And it’s vomit everywhere 
Reality cares
And remembers
Don’t let anyone get to you 
You know who you are
That was a battle cry
Roared from his captain
All before there arrived 
Successes notions
Better be ready to leave something behind
You are only as good as the last time 

I hope he lands steadily
Onto all that’s under it 
Exhibit A
Entered into submission 
Stand by
For the verdict
