Careless Crumble

May 1, 2003

As a child we grow and play
Color blind, universal love
Little drama, little pain
No shed of blood

Spend your time as a small soul
Observing the world, learning to grow
Released as a young adult, to make a choice
But still few hear your voice

The eighties pass, nineties advance
We feel somewhat strong, in past tense
Teenage years, happiness, tears
Emotional turmoil, maturity comes, high school years
But we graduate with many fears

World unraveling, tension grows
Violence prevails, stories told
Millennium comes, terror begins
Revelations says the world shall end
Us against the world, a nation under God
Taking over, demolition
What exactly is coalition?

Nuclear power, biological weapons
No one here has learned a lesson
Two towers that stood so tall
We stand by and watch them fall

We will be the end of us
World power gone corrupt
Turning nations abroad against us

We should have listened, we should have heard
But higher powers follow Lucifer
Keep on this path, we’ll feel the wrath
One final blow will let us know
We should have never begun the show

Once a day of birth
We will be the end of earth

I don’t feel a single thing. Have the pills done too much? Haven’t caught up with my friends in weeks. And now we’re out of touch.

Don’t

Don’t

Don’t look at me, don’t talk to me, don’t know me, don’t try me. Don’t act like you care, don’t try to be there. Don’t give me that look.

She leans in and kisses his lips, it’s the last time she’ll see him like this. So strong and brave to the grave, it’s the last time she’ll see him this way
