Slipping

Waves crashing behind buildings

As volcanoes begin to erupt

Screaming for help in the distance

Rescue efforts far from enough

Dreamers corrupting other dreamers

Pessimists no longer taking the blame

A world losing all of its morals

Minds once pure quickly driven insane

Hearts being slain by the masses

Left to bleed out for all to see

Hierarchy hiding behind closed doors

Laughing as it unfolds on screen

Innocence being infected into guilt

Pride gradually shifting to shame

Blankly staring at a home for the hopeless

Cooperative citizens becoming untamed

We’re losing a battle against ourselves

A challenge we will at one point lose

I suggest we open our eyes much wider

Before we’re stricken of our right to choose
