A stray homeless dog wanders this crumbling city.
It's heart held back by fear of failure.
Sniffing for survival, hungry and filthy.
Exiled by the pack, forever branded a traitor.
His bark echoes in these empty streets
the sound oblivious to unwilling ears.
All these shadows waiting for sin's release
living their life with cogless gears.
Hope lost, unspoken.
I've let all of you down.
trying to keep my ego's crown.
Old sepia photos, nostalgia recalls.
Did I have to be sacrificed after all?
Life is now colors of orange and black.
Still, I wish to bring the rainbow back.
My own fragile little universe,
protecting it with loneliness.
Icy waterfalls in reverse,
preventing friendly caress.
Come and break it down for me.
These cold walls, high into endless sky.
A precise strike it's all it's gonna take.
Under desolation's weight, walls will break.
So we can finally see each other, eye to eye.
Finding solace in your caring arms,
hunger for hope in soulless eyes
feeling parched for penitence.
regret, my only sentence.
I only wanted to be a hero.
Teach me to care again,
my emotions have been wasted,
my smile is only painted,
my stone heart, my only gain.
Make me human again,
sweep me with your sympathy,
my demons, with your love, slain.
our purpose, realigned, in symmetry.
Come and break down with me
A river of pain will flow,
drowning in torrential tears,
as we review our existing fears,
safe from the scorn of our peers.
Let the despair wash through,
clearing the path in front of us,
let's walk this road, together,
A crossroad, to places ubiquitous.
It's never too late to start being
that which we always could be.
We all want to save or be saved...
