In The Middle Of The Rainbow There Is No Gold

We met in the middle of the rainbow.
The colour was drained from your heart
Then the beat began and lightening struck,
as the music rocked and the disease crawled.

Be dammed into damnation by the infliction
and the cancer that devours.
Chocked by possession, hungry for love,
trapped by conspiracy and guilt from above.

Ice is melting in you veins.
As the atmosphere grows cold and
blood is drained, you constrain happiness,
live in fear, trust not a soul but keep your mind clear.

Bored by existence, you can't walk the right path,
sinking further into a cesspit of despair.
Alone and devoured in a world without care.
Will anybody miss you, when you're no longer there 

Your final downbeat breath is shallow
With no food to feed your mood,
One more quiet retreating heart beat
As your mission does conclude.

The Battle of Isolation

Four walls all around, your freedom is denied.
Staying safe and staying sane is all you gotta do.
All you do is moan, while others dice with death for you

This is not a joy ride,
you're lucky to be alive.
Our Heroes fight the enemy, for hours at a time.

Many wars are fought, with guns and weaponry,
But this cursed enemy is invisible to you and me.

So fight the battle and stay apart,
for the angels do not want to capture no more of your hearts.

Together we should be binded, to fight to win this war .
Let's find an inner hunger, a strength within our core.
If there is no sacrifice, no victory will ensue.

But if the spirit of the nation is ignited
And our efforts are not in vain
The demon we are fighting 
will surely lose his game...

The thought of death scares me as I wait here for my fate.

The days that are behind me anger me today

For all I've done is waste my time not doing what I should.
I never thought my days would come and go as quickly as the rain

I've searched within my mind to find my twisted road, but the journey through my mind is misted by the
signals from my soul.

God free my vision from these chains unlock my destiny
I need a clue, I need a sign, please open my closed gate.
