If you watch from the

If you watch from the shadows

You see a lot more

The truth people lie about

Everyone betraying the other

All the rope and bullets, self-inflicted

People see these

No doubt

They know what is happening everywhere they turn

It isn't just going to blow away

It is something people can help others through

But DOES anyone help?

Or does everyone just simply pretend nothing is happening

While you sit there everyday

Thinking "oh, life is nice"

People don't see the next sunrise

They find comfort in the knife

Relief in the bullet

Calmness in the tight rope

But why are these the things we ignore?

People don't live forever

But the reaper didn't have to come so soon

Why do we tell people "ignore it"

When that ain't possible at all

Try to ignore a meteor crashing down

Not so easy as was said

So why are the people today,

Being forced to live this way

Taking their life away

Hurting those close to them badly

Starting a chain reaction all around

Starting high, ending below the ground

 

Is this what people have become?

Threating

Beating

Yelling

Cheating

False-telling

Lying

Rumor-spreading

All laughing

What's so funny about that?

When everyone else is:

Cutting

Tieing

Hanging

Shooting

Jumping

Drowning

Always-fighting

Falling

Falling

Down

Dieing.
