Someday
You'll need my help.
I'll just say
"Fuck you".

Depression is oppression.

May 19

Depression is oppression.
It's a deadly hidden message
Defined by self-hate.
It seals its prisoner's fate.
It holds you captive and throws out the key.
It stabs and jabs just to see you bleed,
Inflicting wounds that scar for life.
Destruction is its mother and death its wife.

You can cry, but it will always ignore your screams.
It terrorizes your soul and haunts your dreams.
It sends you false hope through a bottle or pill.
It destroys your goals and inflicts its will.
You can't run, nor can you hide.
By its rules you will abide
Until it celebrates that you have died.
Open your eyes, or you will be its prey.
It will blur your vision in the most twisted way.
It will seek your destruction and call for your head.
You will lie and wait but never rest in your bed.

Peace will come to those who want peace,
But as long as you feed him, you will see the beast.
You can't run, nor can you hide,
But if you conquer the beast, you will survive.
Prayer and hope can lead the way.
Cling on to every word you pray.
Hope is in truth.
Hate is in lies.
Pray for your soul and open your eyes.

Hey, you got your
freedom of religion
in my
freedom of speech!

Try as we must
The stone will prevail
For we are but sand
On this solid veil

Her face is wrapped in snakes
Her skin shingles of mud
and when the rooster crows
she comes to save her blood.
The loss of childlike purity
it was never hers to lose.
Chained to the bed
wishing to be dead
but the man must always choose.

I killed oppression

I killed oppression
But it doesn't mean
That i'm insane
I killed oppression
For it was just
To wait in vien
I killed oppression
fury made of fire
Brought down all the people
We were never equal
I killed oppression
Standing on the sun
The flames
You can keep em
They killed oppression
right between the eyes
Third you may see
Lead you to your destiny
They killed oppression
Look at the world
Crumble let it be
No one really cares
About the people
They killed oppression
The wars about a dollar
Corporate overlords
Disguise pain with laughter
Gotta feed the horde
Seduction is their nature
They killed oppression
Look at the world
Crumble let it be
No one really cares
About the people
Read betwEen the lines
They Have drawn for you
As
We kill oppression

I am become the irony of me
Two halves, never free
One sided die-ing the fog
Of wars-games of the mind
Dogs howling
Chasing whor-ers
Of night-timing
Tick-tock, ticking
Kicking rhythms
Cracking ear-drummings
Blast beat-ings
My shredded soul
Teaming with a worn out
Heartless power bending
Listless
Lifeless
Condescending
Choice...
There are only three steps to fall
The autumn's
Ending...

Oppression

Spiralling into
Depression
Your words
Have buried
Me beneath
Oppression

Love somtimes disintegrates into becoming the oppressor or the oppressed.

*It is an oppression to keep me alive,

It is an oppression to keep me alive,

a mercy to let me die.
