World of Pretend
Walk alone
In this world of tragedy
Amongst the sick and worthless
Press your feet on the skeletons
Of once had truth

Try to remember
Days passed us by
In this world of secret lies
I lay beside you
Silence my only savior

Here in this world of vicious cycles
Fly above smoke rising from false perception
Look down and see the deadly sickness
So much having been said with out much meaning
Cloud my mind with polluted thoughts
Are you proud of what you've become?

Try to remember
Days passed us by
In this world of secret lies
I lay beside you
Silence my only savior

Look around
Unveil the sugar-coated laughter
See the world of secret lies
Tie you up in deceiving knots
Lock you up in a world of pretend

Make me realize
Tortured souls scream for help
Muffled by ignorance
Forgotten souls cry their sorrow
Only I survived for tomorrow

Try to remember
Days passed us by
In this world of secret lies
I lay beside you
Silence my only savior

Tell me
Where does such a world exist
Here and now
Here and now
Fight reality with shallow fraud
Here and now

Very good write! Such deep emotion and deep regret!!! We are all tortured souls!  Life has a way of  coming full circle, sometimes sooner than later... Either way secret lies will always surface, Its up to us as human beings to sink them to the depths of silence!!

Dear Bob--
I thought this had a great depth to it enhancing
each word as it constructed itself towards its finale-
Truly deserving of its recognition-
Best Wishes~
