As I walk down the street

In the City of Lies

I think about the pain

Hiding my cries

***

Stopped for a moment

Looked at my shadow

To see it grow large

And burst in flames.

***

Took a look at the mirror

To see my bloody tears

Looked around me

And saw the demons of my fears.

***

Struck to the ground

By unspeakable force

Lying there, helpless

Watching the horrors…

***

You gave me a hand

And when I thought its fine

You broke my wrist

Such a crime

***

Cut me open, with a rusty blade

All over the street – flood of my blood

***

Took a heavy brick

And hit my fingers – one by one

Me, screaming

Till you’re done.

***

Bleed, break, hit, cut

No matter what

At the end, I’ll stand up

***

Still alive, but breathing hard

Listening to the sounds of the gun

It shoots, bullets hit my heart

I’m dead, it’s no longer fun

***

Finally I’m awake, but the nightmare stays:

Welcome to the City of Lies
