Entry For girlsluvscupcakes song contest.

I've been waking up, to ash and dust, in a places unknown with people I don't remember..

I wipe my brow, and sweat my rust.

I'm breathing in, those sweet chemicals. Day in, and day out, breathing in the chemicals.

I'm settling to this addiction, I'm breaking in and shaping up, checking out the prision bus. This bus, has it's own addicting lust.

This is it. The end. This is it, the apocalypse. The end of the world as I knew , and the start of the world of which I have come to.

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones. Enough to make my system blow. Unhinged--the collision of the chemicals, pulling me down low.

This is it. The apocalypse. I can't live in this world anymore, and it's hardships.

I feel radioactive, everyone around me catching this sickness.

Is anybody a witness?

I raise my flags, don my clothes. I feel open, and overexposed.

 It's a revoulution I suppose. I can't give it in, I can't give up.

The sweat, blood and dust, to overcome is a must. We'll paint it red, to fit right in.

I'm breaking in, shaping up. Getting out of the prision bus. I haven't given in, and haven't given out.

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones. I'm free, and allowed to be. This feelings enough to make my system blow.

All systems go, the sun hasn't died. I feel it in my bones, straight from inside.

I nearly died.

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow.

Look out below.
