> Five Steps From Forever
>> Black

Shallow footsteps echo across the floor. All that once was, I can see no more. With the eyes of a child, you offer
us the world. With the wounds of the overlooked, I trust in you no more. Bitter(sweet), now I've realized. Drain from me,
bleed me with a smile. In the eyes of the impressionable, your silhouette shines gold...but in my eyes the truth be
known...all is black. Bleed me and you will find deep inside...all the pain you've glamorized in me. They say
reflections never times I find that hard to believe. That which you project and that which you reflect I now
truly perceive. The filth you excrete, sickens me like nothing else. As you walk away, and the distance between what
we once knew increases, I find solace in the simple fact that I know...I feel...truth. You're walking a suicide mile
with destiny. And me...I'm five steps away from forever.

>> Fulfillment

And's come to this, wrought with the anguish. Consumed by spite, morphing towards what I despise.
And yet, things continue on, construe my spite to suit me. I see the world through hardened eyes, set free my past,
(for) tomorrow never dies. And so, I reach towards hope once more and yesterday fades away, and I set myself free...again.
Fall down, rise again. Cast shame, shed this skin. Enlighten me with the power to succeed, help me wash away the impurities
that shame me. True strength comes from the empowerment of self fulfillment, and self fulfillment is only achieved by
those who shed bear shame.

>> For Those Of You Who Kill

Take from me...take from me...take from me...take from me. Razorblade smile conceals your severed tongue.
A hard lesson once taught now learned, learned through the barrel of a gun. Take from eyes no longer see.
Take from tongue no longer speaks. Take from lungs no longer breathe. Take from heart
no longer beats. Lost...alone...I reach out to grasp hold of nothing. All you control...continually fades to nothing.
Yet still I try...yet still I try...I fight to survive.

>> Constructive Deconstruction

I cannot sacrifice, this gift you've given me. All else just disappears, it's all that I can see.
Sweet laughter beckons me, it heals all that surrounds. Baptize me with your touch, this gift that I have found.
It is in you that I see...all that I could ever need...all that I could become. Close my eyes...see her smile...all my
pain...fades to grey. Soft kisses penetrate me, without a touch from her lips. Shining eyes speak volumes, without
an uttered sound. Her smile overtakes me, silhouettes all my fears. All doubt of divine existence, washed away by
joyful tears. It is in you that I see...all that I could ever need...all that I could become. Close my eyes...see her
smile...all my pain...fades to grey. Now I have something to give. You've shown me all I have to give. Now I have
something to give. We've become all I have to give.
