Wheels On The Road

Wheels on the road to redemption
“Look where you want to go,” they say
But I can’t see past all this blinding shit
It bulldozes through my wall of illusion
Forcing me to connect in the midst of escape

It’s a lonely path to an elusive reward
But I must persevere through the raging tears
Discarding the denial and embracing the truth
Shedding the hate for a cleaner skin

Wheels on the road to emancipation
Driving to the light while chained to guilt
A loosening grip as I take the wheel
And ride on through the pelting storm

Out Of The Ruins Of Endless Despair

Stabbed in the eye by your lustful stare
A violent awakening, an instant scare
You can smell the restoration in the air
Out of the ruins of endless despair

Jabbed in the heart by your penetrating flair
Squeezing so hard it pumps out everywhere
A painful release once impossible to share
Out of the ruins of endless despair

Grabbed in the moment with just seconds to spare
A thunderous reaction, a burgeoning pair
A softening resolve, a disappearing glare
Out of the ruins of endless despair

Nabbed by the living embodiment of care
A sophisticated vixen with flame-coloured hair
Escaping the shadows through a provocative dare
Out of the ruins of endless despair
