Dirty streets, dark alleys, shady strangers
A place where broken people struggle to drown pain and suffering through sex, drugs, violence, and any other depraved form of escapism they can come up with
But even if it’s a way to escape the pain, they all come to enjoy it in some small way
The filth of their selves, their lives
Some part of them actually enjoys living in blatant contradiction of everything that’s supposed to be ‘right’ and ‘good’
Because, isn’t dirty, disgusting sex just so good?
Don’t the mind numbing drugs feel fucking amazing?
And everyone loves to hear the smack of a solid punch connecting to a jaw bone,
and to see the blood splatter on the already stained concrete
At least, these people do
I’m sure these are things you’ve heard of, but of course never seen yourself
But haven’t you been curious?
Hasn’t some part of you, even for just a minute, suddenly wanted to step into that sort of realm?
The disgusting underworld, seemingly a separate existence from everyday life
Haven’t you ever had at least the tiniest itch for something new, something dark and depraved?
Something inside you knows that people do ‘bad things’ because somehow they just feel so good
And something inside you wants to know that rush
You want to let it all go, let loose, and fall into that wonderful chaotic bliss
But be careful
You better be careful
Because it’s a one way trip
When you commit to this life, there’s no going back
And even if you escape this world,
even if you fight tooth and nail and crawl your way back to peaceful society,
it won’t ever be the same
YOU’LL never be the same
The normal, average life you always knew before will be unbearably foreign,
almost abusive to the senses
Even if you crawl out of hell
It will always live inside of you
