Something. - Poem by Kathryn Garner

For every second spent
Is another time to repent
And for every word said
There is another man dead
You cant deny
This mandate of heaven
For what we die
Is this mandate of heaven
That cant be forsaken
Cant be forgiven
The souls that cant be shaken
Through the lives were livin'

Forgetting you not god
Till were taken down and shot
All you idiots in this parade
We will not be saved
If you keep this oblivious dream
This cannot outlast
Our every pleading scream
Echoing from the past

Raise your broken hands
In this forced demand
Take this curse upon
The heart you live on
The killed us strong
Yet we haven't died
Though our bodies are gone
Our hearts are inside

So are you playing the hide
Like a lowly chill
They shall play the seek
Till they find the screams you stifled

Given praise and thanks
To the reapers so rank
Who want you to come play
While you run the hell away
They're finding the fear inside
Seeping in through these holes
They've been looking for the lies
That so many have told

Keep away from the stench
For death is giving its pitch
It's making our skin crawl and itch
Were just living in that bitch
Loosen the stitch
Holding us together
Be it good
Or under the weather
We have all forsaken our next lives
For all these lonely dead lies
And oh how the demon angel cries
It was only laid to no rest
When it failed the last test
