Frightening silence Painted on ragged walls Wet air stuck in dry lungs Muddy fingers on the floor, The scent of pain in every bone, Tired eyes washed in dusty rain Drops of memories lost in vain.
I remember all so well... Those feelings in every bit, every cell The same hunger Same emptiness and despair. We were all hunters For a piece of calming air, On tops of mountains of fear; Voices crawl, the sunrise is near... "Go to sleep, sleep forever my dear". Doors were locked, I couldn't hear Truths of our misery, crystal clear This was 1998, the damnned year.
And so it came back Like a cruel memory My hopes resting in a crematory, Old wounds wide open - A life ahead without any track Of the right way to go, Weak, restless, shallow This caged air we've been breathing Still standing, still believing It is all a lie.
