War for Erasure


Welcome to the inner war
No one sees it but you
They can see the casualties
in your eyes
They can feel the scorching flame
of your lies
The pound of flesh you reside within
is the martyr and the scapegoat of malicious sin
But you’re out of control
This is not your show
You are bound and gagged
with a knife to your throat

Spinning in the backseat of your mind
while your car is speeding at 189
Crimes committed by your hands
but you don’t understand
You always meant well
but you’re screaming in hell
You wake up, immobile
Was it all a dream?
You could be so lucky
if life weren’t so mean
Can’t move, can’t see, can’t hide, come clean
Can’t hear over fear, come now, full steam

In a dialect of alien origin
They label you a societal distortion
With a spatula, they pry you from pan
and corrupt your blood with Diazapam
They give you a number and forget your name
They lock you up and deem you insane

But you’re a supernova
You deserve better than this
Just gotta find all the pieces
And baby, find your bliss
When you’re back in the game
They’ll say, “Stay in line”
But your line of destiny
starts high in the sky
No need to conform
Just be reborn
Adhere to intuition
Take ’em all by storm
When judgment day comes
and they read all your mistakes
There won’t a single one
They’ll all be erased
