    Life like guns and roses
    Demons keep me on guard
    No matter the facts
    No matter the notion
    Got to keep my head up
    Through the hocus pocus
    Biblically act like locust
    The vision just keep me focused
    I stay on guard no matter
    No matter how much you provokin
    I see over the clouds
    And the hatred that you projectin
    Mind gives off conflection
    Stereotype my complextion
    Looking around for a confession
    Sitting around like a adolescence
    What is life but a direction
    Duck my head
    Lord why they keep testin
    Im on guard
    Im on guard
    Im on guard from the beast
    Keep terrorizing flesh of my flesh
    Hatred for no one
    Still my sins cover my flesh
    Like undergarments it caresses my flesh
    This a fate worst than death
    Blood shed as I rest
    At the point I must fall
    As nails in my arms
    Feet bolted to grounds
    Rocks thrown at me
    Lord what is this now
    Am I guarding myself??
    Surely there is another way
    Hyperventalation
    Before I commit convulsions
    Its har har hard to breath
    When I speak about this
    When I know im living to die
    And hell aint freezing over
    Is it my time cry
    Guarded cause theres nothing left
    Haunted cause I cheated death
    Knowing what lyes ahead
    Keeps me up at night
    Sometimes scared to go to bed
    Do you ever think you'll die when you sleep??
    Can you die from a dream??
    Or is it just me??
    I know he reaching out
    But im scared to let him in
    My Life
    My Life is
    Materializing into what??
    Lord tell me whats next!!
    For my Guarded Soul

    Sincerly,
    Tantrum "Last Of My Kind"

    brother... did you reach in and steal my thoughts...

    My soul became guarded through degradation, lies, and manipulation
    Through bitterness pain, injustice and deception
    And at the moment when I think the world is unfit to live
    Here comes a random act of kindness to serve as the old bait and switch
    My guard was down and me thinking how nice it was for such and such to do
    But all the kindness was was a veiled attempt to hurt me more
    I look to the sky for guidance; it’s feels unanswered
    I look to Your word for inspiration; I think are those really your words
    Or is it man’s interpretation of Your word?
    I keep my soul guarded from almost everyone but You
    Thinking only You can save me… can that be true
    Then again I think only I can save myself
    I don’t know where to turn or who to turn to
    I feel like I’ve been here before… like I’m going
    Around and around in circles trying to find where You are
    Each time I pass more determined yet more cynical then before
    A lot will and has changed… the only constant is that
    I look to You every time; a lot of the time I feel You aren’t there
    My souls in anguish over these very thoughts
    I need Your love, guidance, and inspiration to pull my up and out
    I just don’t know where to start to save my
    Guarded soul…
