A Shadow in the Bathroom Glass

The dazed look upon your face suits you
Like the “Razorblade 500” racing stripes on your arms
Cigarette burns speak the hard truth
Of a store front mannequin who lost its charm

Darkened ebony traces circle your bored gaze
The badge of emotional horror and fright
We swear not to emulate our elders
So full of incestuous inbred seething spite

This forged front of seemingly impenetrable moral content
Cannot contain the hidden force of molten hatred
So subtle, yet so brutal are the lies of life
Come on let’s face it, we’re all socially dead

Hurry up, be quick and upload that smile
Plug in the function to wave a hand
Download and install the conversational shareware
All the while ignoring the persistent tug of the quicksand

Relentless, restless, pulling, sucking, calling
Is the cool comfort of the solitary darkness
Show me meaning or give me a reason
Not to welcome the beckoning call of the abyss

So, let’s close up shop, bring in the welcome mat
Punch the clock and pull closed the blinds
Switch off the lights and lock the doors
Is it now time for you to bid thee goodbye?
