Lethal Impurity

Post by Kory Anders » Tue Apr 18, 2017 12:42 am

Yes the man did say,
Schizophrenia is my ill,
And to act a normal way,
I must take a nightly pill...

But despite the pills I take
The medicines to heal
My heart and soul still ache
and I hate the way I feel

Whii-Ahh, Whii-Ahh

Still through a dark sky,
Depression floats above
With stars it travels high
As swiftly as a dove

The sanguinary bloodiness
How sluggishly does drip
The sticky, sweaty, ugliness
Still rested at the hip

Whii-Ahh, Whii-Ahh

Head to the ground, eyes are wide
and nights so cold, you shiver
The waters tremble with the tide
Bottom lips are at a quiver

No more control of my own self
No more recognizing me
I am aloof, watching from a shelf
Let Go! and Set me free!

What are these hands that I possess?
These feet upon I tread?
The hair off my shoulders dress
the lining of my head

Whii-Ahh, Whii-Ahh

What will become of me?
Will I ever be free?
So still my heavy tears
Come falling to the ground
Yet, surrounded by my fears
I cannot hear a sound

I cannot feel the gash
That cold metal thrust
It's fresh and bloody hash
Myself I cannot trust

Now my vision is gone,
My breath is softening too
I only hope you know
This life belongs to you.
