Treasure Island

Bradley John Downs


Mr William Mortality


Come time to test the truth and the fear
here comes the point to push you severe
you knew it was coming an now here you go
all that i have, all that i know

spread the pain- push the purpose
spread the pain- accross the surface

have you ever been in a battle beyond
the power of your punch,
now its time you respond
to the bullshit behaviour
and the brutal force
with the power of your mind
to determine the course

self control- no break today
the power to choose- is the power i crave

Mr William Mortality
Torso debouchery
into the fire, to the fire, to the flames
into the fire, to the burning flames

We live in the brain drain, see the price rise again!
We die in the brain drain, where the cost is so high!
We live in the brain drain, see the price rise again!
We die in the brain drain, where the predators feed!

big waves crash down on me,
under cold black skies in the icey sea
Im the prospect of the damage done
and attacked by the feeling that we all die young,

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
