Because You Can

-

When you see the world

__melting away

Do you wanna feed the fire flames?

As you shatter your mind

__and walk away

Does it all in all seem a better way?

The fuel to die

__and stay alive

Are mixed together in your life

But if the drowning hopes

__just seem too far

Will the world around you fall apart?

Not a grinning face

__with a staring eyes

Could ever tell a single lie

But if you feel a moment

__stuck within

You can let loose your thoughts and crack the whip

If you stand back laughing

__at all you slay

Be aware of the of the damage you have portrayed

Thee images

__of lust to hurt

Burn thru your soul and make you worse

But when you're down on the ground

__hoping and praying

No innocence in misbehaving

As the lightning bolts

__they seem not there

So you doubt you'd have to care

Go on and waste

__all the peoples lives

That you think deserve to die

But don't give me that pathetic look in your eyes
