Treasure Island

Hasan Haskovic

(30.12.1997 / Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Burden


The burden I bear
My breath, anguishes of the soul

No, I am no fool
I knew the boundaries
Set by the human will
I know the chains, their rattle
And the emptiness left behind
A hole I can never fill

I'll bear not
The human plague
And I will not bow
To you, Lord.

For you inspired the human evil
Gave birth to the random hand of fate
Now offer us mercy, wear out your welcome
And leave before it's too late

For soon man will be his own God
A shadow of the scenery beneath heavy glass
Laugh you will when he starts rot
You made us to suffer, not to last

No, I am no fool
I'll bear not
Your insignia
Nor shall I believe in darker days
I'll live as long as I can
With no banner in my hand
No burden upon chest
And no theories left to test

We are all evil
We are all human
