Tired of dying

Confusion from the masses

Wearing rose tinted glasses

saw it coming long ago

didn’t even want to know

knowing calls for action

action comes from passion

Emotions heating up

So tense shits getting rough

Be still now you’ve done enough

Reality is just too much

Escape the planet of sin

To the safety of my mind

Predators are not welcome here

I will not let them in

This time we take the win

Are you confused!!?? So am I.
