“Wash the poison from off my skin, show me how to be whole again”…

He wrestles with his conscience…
Discards relationships of the past…
The ones that made a man of him…
With memories which will last…
But are now locked in boxes…
Stacked at the back of his head…
He’s denying they ever existed…
He wishes they were all dead…

Refusing to face his demons…
Preferring just to run away…
As he can’t handle the truth…
Since that cold December day…
When the past was reinvented…
And his future rearranged…
Ripped into tiny little pieces…
Leaving his poor mind deranged…

And infected him with a poison…
That seeped into his veins…
Blurred his once perfect vision…
Left him totally insane…
And questioning his morality…
The who, what, when and why…
Of both the seen and the unseen…
That exist beneath the weeping sky…

As he begs for a return…
To his younger, innocent days…
Where life was just a playground…
With slides and swings to play…
But now it’s just a carousel…
That spins and spins so fast…
No opportunity to jump off…
Knows this twisted ride must last…

As he keeps on paying…
For the sins and all the lies…
That he’s been committing…
Away from all the prying eyes…
As he wrestles with his conscience…
Discarding memories of the past…
The ones which will never leave him…
The deep dark scars that will forever last…
