Till Truth Becomes a Lie

by Fixxxer   Sep 27, 2007


When you embrace my words,
do you feel my heart beat?
When you look through my eyes,
do you see what I see?
Are you blind to this world,
do you know what is what?
When the truth is unfurled,
will you bleed out the cuts?

We live in a cruel place
where pain and pleasure mix.
We dream in mesh and lace
and live to get our fix.
The dead go on living
and the living want to die.
Taking, never giving,
till truth becomes a lie.

    This is going on my favorites.
    My jaw dropped at the lines:
    'The dead go on living
    and the living want to die.'

    I put you on my favorites about two years ago, and now I see why. Were you in a clun with me or something?
