The first poem from my new poetry album titled "Morticaw". It's about the lack of control we have due to how the governments and society indirectly take over our lives. Just a personal opinion, I think people should open their eyes to this subject.

Scream to the Sirens

The demons have swept us away 
We have nothing left to give
We own only the air around us 
Not even the right to live 

The strangers of our world 
Remain settled in our veins 
Because they have the remote 
And we are the ones to blame 

Speak, breathe, sleep 
Do as you are told 
Scream, stay, bleed 
Watch your story unfold 

Smoke our lungs dry 
Drink ourselves to death 
Stab the center of our hearts 
And enjoy this one last breath

Follow all the rules 
For they shall guide you home 
Don't let go of your roots 
Feel your dreams turn to foam 

They say it's never too late 
But dear, hope has become the past
The bomb has started ticking 
Ready for the deadliest blast 

Believe in them, for once 
Yes, they are completely real 
They control your emotions 
And everything you feel 

We have lost 
We've let them win 

So scream 
Just scream 
I can't hear you screaming 
My tears have blocked the way
Please scream 
The wolves behind are howling 
Oh my god, scream 
The owls are fainting 

So scream 
Just scream
The flags of freedom are burning 
One final scream
And screech
For our hearts are yearning 
Now breathe 
Take one last breath
Because there's not much air left
Allow your lungs to breathe 
Just breathe
In this masquerade we call life 

Let it all burn 
Let it all die 
Let the tables turn
We cannot survive 

We've let them win
We've let them win 

Weary of our souls 
It's time to pay the bills
The only freedom we have
Is one set in our graves 
Say goodbye 
Say goodbye 
Right after you bow
Say goodbye 
Say goodbye 
It's all over now 

The damage is done 
You may not smile 
Whatever you do
You will walk the mile 
Believe in what you see 
Believe in them

I agree with the comment above. This was very intense. I particularly liked, "The only freedom we have/ Is one set in our graves."
Very well written.
