Toxic Acid Drop


A dropp of toxic rain fell
so hard into my natural cell
That the toxic acid drop
Caused Hades into Bliss to crop
As I lay in my ma's womb
Like a dead body in a tomb
Arms clasped, fists clamped;

I was safe you see,
Until the dropp from perish sea
Was let into my umbilical
Eventually into my life
Thus has been the cycle
For all of us who strife
To cast out from our lives Lucifer
His evil ways to decipher

Shout I won't loudly
I'll pester evil in me boldly
And let it live in me coldly
Like ice does in a freezer
Or dirt does in chicken gizzard

That toxic dropp is in us all
Do you give it room or hall?
Be wary it doesn't make you fall
And never will you stand tall at all
