The Perfect Scream



Wake up now. Wake up to the perfect scream.
No time to sleep, for if you sleep you dream
And if you dream, the judge is sitting there,
No sign of mercy in his ice block stare.


No sign of mercy in his ice block stare,
Not one sign of hope in this cold place where
So many lives are sliced apart and he
The soulless sits in judgment over me.


The soulless sits in judgement over me.
With one sentence he has the choice to be
The unforgiven father or worse still
A tyrant with another’s time to kill.


A tyrant with another’s time to kill
Drones on relentless, oblivious until
My battered spirit just can’t take it all
And my eyelids start to droop and fall.


And my eyelids start to droop and fall
No more my slip from grace I can recall.
No time to slip, for if I slip I dream.
Wake up then. Wake up to the perfect scream!

One of those darker moments, but hey, we all survived!
