Society sounds like a pretty woman.
But, I've seen it's the true face.
It's rotten, like a gutter
Filled with worms and germs.

Streets filled with frauds
Whores having name
Thieves having fame
A gutter where humanity doesn't exist.
Not anymore.

People eat each other, alive.
To monsters,
Everyone is just a piece of flesh.
They taste it and split in the ground.

I've seen society
I've seen it's people's true faces.
Filled with rage, sorrow and disgust.
Backbone broken
Soul tore out
Blind eyes, can't see the difference
Tongue, can't taste the justice
Vines are filled with spoiled blood.

I imagine sometimes,
Where do they go?
After death?
To the God who abandoned us?
Or to the Devil who adopted us?
And what might be the reply
When they ask " how's I ?"
Huh, they both knew the answer.
Devil and God.
They both might be saying the same thing.

They said
" Pathetic "
