dad's house

birds are chirping
but demons are lurking
beyond these love ridden walls
when i try to run away the feeling of guilt still calls
as i am watching my loved ones and how many lies they spread
i have come to realize my conscience is already dead i have tried to bring myself on there common ground but each and every time i try i fall through the midst of sound
what a mask an ugly mask they put upon there face what shame such a shame upon there sad disgrace
help me for i am lost and unsure
how to get away i love them so much but
bitter i must stay so keep away from dad's house for a raffle of lies so true
keep away from dad's house for he will lie to you...
