To WhomTo WhomTo whom do we surrender ourselves?To whom must we obey?We're all slaves of eternity,We take pleasure where we may.We stumble through our ruddy livesWe're oblivious to the ropesThat bind us down and hold our dreamsAnd eventually shatter hopes.To whom do we surrender ourselves?To whom must we obey?We're all slaves of eternityWe take pleasure where we may.1/18/11 MLT

She's Your Angel In WhiteShe's Your Angel In WhiteShe's your angel in white,Yet you garb her in blackHer eyes were once blue,but now they're all flat.She's your guardian angelyet you use her evily,She's supposed to love you,But you hold her throat leathily.Her heart is yours too,Yet you strive to break it.You push, and you shove,But for some reason, You don't like it.She's your angel in white,Yet you garb her in black,Her eyes were once blue,but now they're all flat
Dreams IIDreamsDreams are just thatIdeas, nothing more,Thoughts that are mass-producedby heartless machines.They speak of things thatwill never happenSucces with no schoolingLife without familyLove without beautyAnd, eventually,these long-held memories,the digital memory of our livesis wiped awayby the hold of a ropeor by the glint of a bladein the night

The View of 82nd StreetThe view of 82nd StreetIs one no mountain can compete.The maiden, from her window, fair,often looks to the street down there.The cars are always racing by,and the Urban beauty is no lie.The silver city background,that's rarely ever found,the view of 82nd Streetis one no mountain can compete.
