As a drunk who staggering to the door
Comes back for just one more.
Or the gambler who cannot believe his luck
And bets it all away.
I have tried to stay within the walls,
Where penance thralls the masses,
But to no avail.
My eyes are open
But cannot see
Those petty values,
Trying to save our souls.
And find myself like Alice
Falling down the rabbit hole of life
Where light is black to me.
Where black is the only light,
That shines a path to where I want to be.
