The Tiger And The Deer

The tiger rises up before the pounce
a few seconds of complete visibility
and the deer sees no more
The tiger feels no sorrow

Little Girl

Run little girl, run away
Hide some place and there you'll stay
Watch little girl as the world spins round
Soon the bodies of society will lie on the ground


do you scream when no one’s around?
You’re lost in your world but don’t want to be found.
You turn to run, when no one pulls you back.
You’re running along the beaten track.

These Walls

These walls feel like they are slipping away,
I’m standing on the one floorboard that stays in place,
I see my world melting right before my eyes,
I’m forced to watch as I see my hopes die,
