Waiting for the Day

A wise man once said 
Keep your enemies closer than your friends 
His words that linger on 
Revenge will come before our time will end 

Never let him know 
Your best weapon is the element of surprise 
Always watching and waiting 
Friendships illusion covers hatreds guise 

They think that you don’t know 
Best keep it that way 
Wait for time to strike 
Waiting for the day 

You’ll leave them reeling 
They’ve had it coming now for so long 
Never knew what hit them 
The ringing in their ears is now you swansong

No Light at the End

I drowned in the dark, its night again 
Alone where shadows go to hide 
All sound is gone, consumed by pain  
No sight or sign of life outside 

My only friend is in my head 
(I’m your only friend I’m in your head) 
He talks to me to ease my mind 
(I talk to you to ease your mind) 
Hear the words of wisdom said 
In search of answers hard to find 

Day after day, my life’s on repeat 
Safe inside my lonely shell 
Locked in my solitary retreat 
Live out my days in my own hell 

Too scared to ask for help I need 
(You’ll never get the help you need) 
Further falling to the black 
(Forever fall into the black) 
A prison never to be freed 
Not moving forward, just looking back 

Day after day, my life’s on repeat 
Safe inside my lonely shell 
Locked in my solitary retreat 
Live out my days in my own hell

Burning Rose

We need to talk……You said as you came in 
I’ve felt like this for a long time, to take it on the chin 

I don’t know how……But the feelings have all gone 
I can’t do this any longer; it’s a struggle to go on 

But life moves on…….and that past is not my own 
I look back from the other side, and you’re just a stepping stone 

But life moves on…….and that past is not my own 
I look back from the other side, and you’re just a stepping stone 
So you left me bleeding ....and the words cut so deep……. 
I must be dreaming…I must be asleep………… 

You’re just a blur, now living the life you chose 
For all of the years, you held back the tears, my gift a burning rose 
my life moves on…….and that past is not my own 
I look back from the other side, and you’re just a stepping stone 

But life moves on…….and that past is not my own 
I look back from the other side, and you’re just a stepping stone 
So you left me bleeding…….and the words cut so deep……. 
I must be dreaming………I must be asleep………… 

But life moves on…….and that past is not my own 
I look back from the other side, and you’re just a stepping stone 
So you left me bleeding…….and the words cut so deep……. 
I must be dreaming………I must be asleep…………

16:9

Your life is shown in 16 by 9 
Every movement seen 
Millions of mini you’s on hard drives 
That record everywhere you’ve been 

GPS to find your way 
But who is watching who 
Every gadget sends a ping 
There is no hiding place for you 

Not just Big Brother keeping track 
But little sister too 
The chip inside that never sleeps 
Your life in constant view 

They’re watching you 
Paranoia rules 
They’re watching you 
Suspicious moves
