Chains have indented my ankles from clamping forever
And yet it seems like yesterday I saw my freedom
Yet it was only a drink of water, a moment of courtesy
A genuine smile met with a thank-portraying gratitude

It was the trait that labeled humanity a symbol to believe in
That had become a shadow people fear to step into
It seems like only weeks ago, people would greet casual in peace
Now a grunt, a shy glimpse at the very least

Why has all this come to be
What fades as a whole, once called humanity
My eyes have been scarred; strained to judge with distaste
Been down the dark alleys; seen the truth of lies face

I’ve heard the misfortune that rings the ears of the damned
I’ve danced in the blood that became the earths sand
The constant sacrifice, the meld and twists of pain and treat
The very birthstone, granting choice, the very ground beneath our feet

It’s when we forget what and when recognized
It’s when our lives feel, constrained by the lies
It’s living in puppeteers skin, painted forever, with that fake big grin
It’s what portrayed in the face, while what’s inside, is blind in its place

It’s the tombstone we chisel, the future we bring
The nightmares that shut from the angel’s that sing
It’s when the dark and the light, mold and then bend
And label eternity, the day, tomorrow,

And the future we spend…
