Its tattooed on my Skin

he Sound of Madness

Fear strikes once again

Surely poltergeists are here

But why should I fear

Hallucinations kick in

Its just the madness within

Bluebirds haunt me

Cardinals too

The red winged black bird?

No its just him

Its reminds of a time

When there was no madness within

I am snowed in

Now where do I begin

I am trapped in my head

Haunted by the undead

Can I feed on their souls?

Should I believe what in my head?

I cannot go with the flow

I’m simply a shell with no soul

You know what helps me think?

A little little drink

The worst decision I made

Was listening to the bartender in my head

I have lost all control

I can feel it in my soul

I am so snowed in

Where do I begin?

Like tattoo on my skin

The darkness harvests my soul

Can you make out my mind

And the darkness within

The pills make me high

The drunkards take me low

Why must I be haunted

By their tortured twisted souls.

Where do I begin? Its just the madness within
