Sharp Knives

Stand in line

Silenced cries

Blinded fools

Believe the lies
Hope deceives

Strength decides

Hand that feeds

A soul dividesPromise change

And then sedate

Villains ritual

Manipulate

Future lost

Muted screams

Never becomes

Diminished dreamsCause you covet

Cannot exist

Convictions plummet

Pains persistPlay your part

In these charades

Illusion of choice

Hope devastatesStand in line

Silenced cries

Blinded fools

Believe the liesHope deceives

Strength decides

Hand that feeds

Also dividesDespair takes hold

The world as it falls

The illusion of choice

Nation in slumber
