I've wandered all alone
In this lonely place people call home
Made with bricks and stone,
It's voice in a melancholic tone.
Thoughts fill my head,
"The darkness should be colored,"
"A brutal red." it said.
Oh, how I desire for it to stop
When the rain still continues to drop
Somehow, keeps me sane
As the sound enters my poisoned brain
"Should it always be like this?"
I asked myself in the mirror,
My eyes, deeper than the abyss
Digging up all kinds of horror.
I hope the sun scorches me tomorrow,
I'm sure that I'd be glad I'll be grateful for the time I had
And I close my eyes to greet another nightmare
Opening my eyes tomorrow to a world that isn't fair.
