    I sit at the center
    of chaos
    looking out
    through frantic windows
    that tinkle
    in the key of
    lost freedoms...
    my closet holds
    no mask,
    and my residence
    aint gas-proof,
    flights be cheap but
    I love
    my life
    so I drive
    for hours afraid
    to sleep
    'cause I am faceless
    to
    this enemy
    and I don't
    know where to go...
    to
    fight back
    'cause bombs being dropped
    on foreign lands
    don't stop
    bomb scares from
    clearing out downtown
    or the
    fear painting
    me...
    at
    the bottom
    of smoking rubble,
    so I
    double-down on
    ammo
    and sit clickin'
    in the black-ness
    as
    Anthrax moves
    slowly
    west...
    It's hard
    to rest
    knowing
    we be suffocating
    in the folds
    of media coverage cover's...
    only covering releases
    with calming feces...
    for the "anti-panic" plan
    not to mention
    the coming holiday
    seasons...
    Halloween will gain
    new meaning
    this year...
    as we
    dwell in this haunted home
    flying tri-colored rags
    yelling
    " trick or treat, smell the heat..
    gimme a terrorist soon to eat "
    at tables
    full of judases pointing
    the finger at
    us turkeys
    turning
    over for depleted
    banks
    without backing
    giving thanks
    for staged attackings
    re-relaxing
    ripe
    for picking apocalyptics...
    we more worried about

    will there

    still....

    .....be a



    Christmas ?


    So
    keep movin'
    like
    sharks in a seastorm
    cause deception
    is deceptive
    and
    a

    N A T I V E


    abrasive.....



    T I M E

    is

    ..........a'w a i s t i n'.

    G-man...these are troubled times..confusing, uncertain...
    people are being pulled in every direction and not knowing which way to turn..
    when this smoke clears , will there be more smoke to follow..
    if only..we could go back to yesterday...but wasn't yesterday as bad as today...it just wore different clothes..

    FLOW ON! I really liked this! It's hard and fast and edgy...a method to the madness which is really sanity while the rest of the world is crazy! lol

    Did that make any sense? :lol:


    But, bottom line, THIS WAS SOME SERIOUS FIYA! :toast:
