What Have I Done Now?

It's about how aggression can take over a person and the deadly consequences of uninhibited violence

Friday in full swing

You never could see past the haze

Skin deep, but anger boils on inside

What they said, was never true

I could never know why, but this is how it ends

 

Mouthing off, but what did he say

Who really cares, you've gotta make him pay

A flurry of fists, and your mind turns to the darkness

Your logic and reason once again betrayed

 

When will this feeling stop

The monster within gaining control

I looked to the streets for bravado

But I only ever gave away my soul

 

I never did know the difference between right and wrong

Corrupting the weak, destroying the brave

For a dark few seconds of feeling strong

And all I can do is smile

 

A blur of florescence and my hands are bound

The distortion realigns and suddenly the truth is visible

Passers-by gazing, staring open-mouthed

What the hell have I done now

 

When will this feeling stop

The monster gaining control

I looked to the streets for bravado

But I only ever gave away my soul 

The End
