Dancing in the shadows

Looking through the mirror
hiding in the shadows
shouting nonsense
serving someone else's ideals

Becoming irreverent
unwrapping the lies
hiding within temptation
shaking our sanity

Offending some commandments
stepping over others
cutting the grass
sharing new ink

Tasting the rain
embracing the heat
becoming something else
evolving through pain

Walking on the edge
beyond good and evil
obeying good manners
thinking 'bout evil deeds

Dying a little
living some more
fearing oblivion
ignoring reality

Trying new things
forgetting old ones
reaching the end
accepting defeat
deceiving thyself

in the end just shoutin' stop

Requiem - The dragon's fall

I've been falling
through the abyss of my consciousness
falling with every step
dying with every breath

Failing my expectations
my dreams
my life
and my mind

My pride is shattered
my wings are in pieces
I have no light and no darkness left
just a deep and endless vacuum

I'm losing my mind
but there is no mind to be lost
I'm losing myself
where there's no self to be reclaimed

I walk the desert of the living
lurking among the dead
wondering if they would ever see me

I can't find myself in the mirror
I can barely see myself
no wonder
the mirror does not see me

Whatever remained... (of my former self)
is there no more
whatever it was
no proof it ever existed remains
