Whats with the subliminal resources
Completely lost with unforgiven chambers
You will perish as we go through our courses
As you go about with evil gamblers
Life itself is nowhere
To be found
Truth is here so they
Send the hounds
Everyone is dead while they cherish
Everything is beyond reality
Knowing it is a ticket
To the upstairs where we find Everywhere
No such thing as pain
Spirits instead of my brain
The Good have worked beyond chores
So we all know the poor
Thanks to War, Death, and Dead
We know to listen to our Family and Friends
