Treasure Island

Unwavering Fear


Nothing seems wrong
All is right
Perfect as can be

But in an instant
Fast yet slow
Lond but short

Everthing changes
Nothing's the same
Everything's gone wrong

All happiness and perfection gone
Like a candlelight blown out
Like the petals of a flower in a strong wind

Unwavering fear
Enters our body
Consumes the heart in a suffocating asthma

Unwavering fear
Makes your actions wrong
For your brain is gone

Unwavering fear
Makes you think things
Negatively and sourly

Predictions of the future
Once so beautiful and happy
Now full of horror and despair

Unwavering fear
Makes sleep impossible
For days on end

Unwavering fear
A suicide in the making
Just waiting for the final push

Unwavering fear
Heartache and sorrow
Shall be my last feelings

Before I take my own life
All thanks to
Unwavering fear
