Wanted

Dead or Alive.

I am a wanted man

The things I done

I no longer question

It’s all behind me now

 

But some people who remember

They put a bounty on my head

So their thoughts could go to rest

They really want me

They really want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

I am a rebel

Willing to do what others won't

I refuse to let doubt or ' proper' reasons get in the  way

I go after my gut

Its not led me astray

I know where its got me

but I am not sure where I'm going

 

Wherever it is

They will take no time to find

and then I will have to move again

But I got no regrets

People want me

People want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

I am a runaway

Still they chase me down

There right on me

 

They are hypocrites at best

and should they catch me

I will put them to a proper test

 

There right on me

But I ain't going to turn around

Cause if I do

I may die upon the sight

 

Ugly hearts, repulsive scars, and twisted faces

Smokes and a dark mirror smirking

The cruel reminder of how close I was to becoming them

 

There right on me

Long ago I learned it

And I think I know this best

You are always only seconds away

From a judgment day

When it comes you better be ready


You might turn into something else

 There right on me

The People want me

The People want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less 

 

I am a loner

As I know too much

So they have been watching me

squinting for quite some time

plotting like evil masterminds

 

I once tried to stop them

but to no avail

There are people who want me

There are people who want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

I am a refugee

I see them in the distance

They ride the horses of apocalypse

On their journey to end me

 

I need a godsend

I could some assistance

There are people who want me

There are people who want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

I am a victim

I might be resilient

but I hurt like everyone else

I do what I can

 No matter how large or how little

I realize that sadly in the end

I have to take care of myself

There are people who want me

There are people who want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

I am a lawman

The law is what it is

Sometimes I wonder how it even exists

But who am I to question?

We live in a  world of blatant lies

 

Why people listen to the deprecating gossip

I will still always wonder why 

 There is more

So much more than this

Yet People want me

Yet People want me dead

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

I am a public enemy

With nowhere to run

And nothing to lose

So let them come

I got nothing to hide

Unlike the lot of them

Those People want me

Those people want me dead 

This is a showdown

Nothing less

 

 I should be a martyr

But I got something to live for

A greater purpose

Something I defined for myself

 

Unlike these empty husks

Who got nothing

But the time they got left

Which ain't much

 

Unlike these monsters

Who did the unthinkable

Selling their own souls

To chase mine

 

I will not waste away

 

Unlike these dead men walking

I will walk away...

Alive. 

The End
