lyrics

The tension in the air and the usual stares meant it didn’t take long for the gloves to come on. It let off a sound that aroused a crowd. The stage was set for those glazed targets to play murder in the dark and in the car park. The first act had to start to allow those dogs to bark. The curtain had collapsed to the racing of the packs, all rushing to attack until each face had turned black. The secrets of buildings are kept from human beings, they whisper from ceilings to gutters and street lights. They laugh from such heights and take on their own life observing the shadows and who they wait behind. The fighters and the frightened keep them enlightened, entertained, inspired and glued to the screen. No sign of regret rests on their conscience.
Their appetite stays wet again until they feed. There’s danger in eyelids from just looking sideways, a blinding reminder of what we shouldn’t have to see. I can hardly fathom a faint heart and spineless is not something that I’m proud of but it’s all I’ll ever be.
