The Spectrum Across My Eyes

It's about how feelings of euphoria can quickly turn to rage, especially when fuelled by a catalyst (take your pick from any substance)

Lost in euphoria

The spectrum flashing

Flickering across your eyes

You find beauty in the grey skies

 

Your mind open

Your eyes deceived

Someone unknown takes your hand

People around you become shadows

 

Burning, raging, a million urges

It runs in blood, refusing to disperse

One night, you're lost forever in time

 

The spectrum fades

Euphoria morphs to paranoia

A flash of rage

Beyond the point of backing down

 

A flash of white

Suddenly the thump of a beat

Becomes the beep of hospital machines

 

Burning, raging, a million urges

It runs in blood, refusing to disperse

One night, you're lost forever in time

 

 

The End
