Gazing upon the rocky gray mountain peaks.

Abruptly, particle of rocks avalanche break away.

Rush down the surface of the mountain,

and shake the ground into bitter disaster.

It seems like darkness holds the world hostage.
~~~~~~~

Rush down the surface of the mountain.

Like a cat sinks its claws into the wall- people hang on the edge.

Fighting not to slide down below the cave erosion.

Anatomy of fear stares in the eyes of us all.

Really no room to talk, humanity is caught in the act of misdeed.
~~~~~~~

Anatomy of fear stares in the eyes of us all.

When we are trapped under the cloud's veil,

and evil paint balls spread all over our bodies.

Should harsh reality to be tossed in?

What is our reasons and alibis?
~~~~~~~

Humanity cries for help and attention.

What is our reasons and alibis?

We are of different races, ethnicities and creeds- love must not flourish?

For you not silence- I must retaliate?

For we are not in the same political comfort zone- must we declare war?
~~~~~~~

Humanity cries for help and attention

Who to blame and who should we go to for repair?

It's to keepsake, and can't be left in this lucrative scene.

We should collaborate, and make amend, but when?

Humanity cries- look at me, notice me and stare at me!
