Endless Insanity

The surrounding air grew thick
Every second felt like an eternity
How long has it been?
My lungs filled with toxic gases
My eyes reddened by fumes
How long (x2)
How long will the madness persist
Is this hell
Will this be my final resting place?
Have I entered a domain of true madness?
I no longer remember
I no longer feel
I no longer know who I am
Stuck in a constant daze of paranoia
Will I live to see another day?
Days long gone
Days that can never be replaced
I have wasted so much time
Time spent on drugs
Paying for cheap hookers
Time spent partying
Time spent committing adultery
I long for the heat of the sun
I yearn for the touch of maiden lips
I cry to see the sight of my son and daughter
This isn't the life that I wanted
I never asked to be chained up
I never asked to be beaten
I never asked to be treated as an animal
Why have my GOD forsaken me
Is there a GOD
What GOD turns a cold shoulder to his creation?
What GOD abandons his son?
I am the lowest of all life forms
Unfit for his eyes
Unfit for humanity
I am indeed insane
For no sane man would trade happiness for misery
This is the story of an insane man
A man Stuck in Endless Insanity
