The Devil’s Prey

I slowly lose all of my mind.

All the pressures of the earth,
rebegin at every birth.

Redefining all of our thoughts,
broken down by gun-like shots.

Another blow to my head,
one more time I’ll surely be dead.

I've found no answers inside of me.

Looking for a way back home,

I'll search the world with a fine-toothed comb.

Perfect bait, the Devil's prey.

Closer yet, day by day.

Running from the fear within.

Heart or soul, which will win?

Comprehending, soul-defending.

Unaware, without a care.

No more of this pretending.

I'll say goodbye, this is my final ending.
