Tomorrow

A life worth

Nothing in value

 

Throwing it away

The end you take no pay

 

This is the hand dealt to me

Burning cards I must hold

 

Never a magic pill

All I know is the thrill

 

Life is just a dream

Gone awry

 

Name another saint

Shining in brand new paint

 

I know the mistakes I’ve made

No clock to turn but to tomorrow 

 

This is the lot I’m dealt

Never a life of felt

 

Collapsing in pain

Now I know tomorrow is a lie

 

Feel their pain in kind

Rot overtakes your mind

 

I know this is a sham

But I’ll still feel this way tomorrow

 

Claws grip at my soul

Nothing helps to climb the pole

 

Of a false tomorrow

Where life pays tax to time

 

Death takes all that is mine

No trust for the divine

 

Take me far away

Ashes blow over decay

 

Nothing held sacred tomorrow 

When foul winds blow

 

This is the pain I hold dear

Nothing to collapse my only fear

 

Know I failed

But I tried my best

 

Toxic futility

No measure to comfort me

 

My best is to know as much

Saving graces fall away

 

Forgive me

My transgressions 

 

I tried to live the light

I knew so well

 

Now they call to me

Another dissonance

 

Calling me tomorrow 

No saving grace left

 

For the already fallen

No mercy for those who tried their best

 

Noiselessly slip among the dead

Without so much as a whisper of protest
