A quick peom about a mans life through the ups and downs
                   Sometimes, we just need to forget it all
                   Look at the stone over our heads and let it fall
                   Give this one to the world, please
                   I know it's wrong, but it's one of ease
                   All the flesh is just a tease
                   The devil laughs as we fall to our knees
                   As we recite our fake prayer
                   And all the other people sit and stare
                   Yet we refuse to stare at ourselves
                   Scared of what we will learn
                   Refuse to listen to what He tells
                   Like we are okay with the burn
                   Spoiler, we are not
                   We were only caught
                   We were only the people of the past
                   Trying to live way too fucking fast
                   Like we have time to be human
                   Like we are all just stupid
                   Later we will rise
                   Later we will be redeemed          
                   But right now, I just want to get drunk and smoke some weed
                   Why do we say goodbye to everything for instant pleasure?
                   That's like dying on the spot for the gold treasure
                    See why we want to forget?
                   Because we let the lust of the flesh and life take us down
                   Well I'm done with it, done with that life
                   Tired of getting lit, soon comes the knife
                   I refuse to let it take away my paradise
                   He waits for me to say the word
                   But that word is covered in a selfish past
                   He waits for me like a momma bird
                   But my wings just don't seem to last
                   I want to be clean
                   I done not being heard
                   I want to be seen
                   I done with being a coward
                   I know there is more than this
                   And that's You.
                   You are the original forgive and forget.
                   My past is in the past, and although it makes me sick
                   I will overcome it
                   This is not my life as I know now
                   My life will now be given to the crown.
