The beginning of the end
This is the beginning, the beginning of the end
I feel the bombs hit the asphalt, the shrapnel destroying everything around me.
But yet I live, I feel my chest, my heart still beats
I walk through the ruins of the city, wallowing in my despair, the dead whispering in my ear.
Why am I still alive?
The war destroyed all I held dear, I am nothing but an empty shell wandering the ruins of a city.
I hear footsteps, I turn a gun appears in my hand.
I feel a bullet embed itself in my chest; I stagger, preparing to die.
But yet I live
I hear myself laugh, but this laughter is not my own, I point the gun at the man
I pull the trigger
More footsteps, more gunshots
I feel countless bullets enter my body, but I will not die
The world has betrayed me,
So I will fight it.
I laugh and dance as the bodies pile up, my madness consuming everything
the soldiers keep coming, and I keep killing
I hear more footsteps, I load my gun, smiling
I point my gun at the man; I see his face and realize who it is
An old friend that left for the military, I come back to my senses,
But it is too late, I pull the trigger
I feel a bullet enter my skull, I fall to the ground, dead
I open my eyes
I hear singing, I look around me
I am amongst my friends once again.
A smile graces my lips, and I add my voice to the song of fate, cruel as it may be
