When my dark side starts to leak, it all spills at once. You can also clearly tell what I've written in my younger days. Thus be one. My newer work is much more mature and honestly, I believe its much deeper.

Children crying,
Families fighting
Bestfriends lying,
Loved ones dying

Only in a world this cold,
Only in a world like this
People crying wolf
Calling out shouts in vain
Taking away help
From the ones who really have pain

Only in a world this cold,
Only in a world like this

Tears being shed
People becoming mentally dead
Empty eyed sociopaths taking over
Parents letting their kids watch them
Get farther away from sober

Only in a world this cold,
Only in a world like this
Fathers leaving,
Wives and children
Weeping

Hobos on the sidewalk
Begging for change
Too lazy to work
For minimum wage

Tension at home
Conflict creates a dome
Around the heart
Small things make the problems start

Only in a world this cold,
Only in a world like this

Kids drop out of school
No education
Living life like a fool

Children crying
Families fighting,
Bestfriends lying
Loved ones dying

Only in a world this cold,
Only in a world like this
