Once upon a time,
We fought up out of the slime,
That permeated the world that we lived in.
We fought our way to the top,
But once there we didn't stop,
We kept fighting as long as the world continued to spin.
It didn't take very long,
Before each side was far too strong,
And we ended lives with much more efficiency.
With 10 million killed every day,
I soon began to pray,
That peace could be found for me.
But no matter how hard we tried,
We couldn't stop the wars before they multiplied,
And our end was only a few steps away.
Part 2: Arrive
We were winning the fight,
Kept our enemies wrapped tight,
But the world was much worse for wear.
Whether or not we won or lost,
It didn't matter which lines we crossed,
We'd already gone too far to care.
What little land we had left,
We protected from others theft.
Holding on to all that we held dear.
They came in the middle of the night.
They said they felt sorry for our plight.
But their kind words did nothing to stem our fear.

To see my life's a sham.
A big lie is all I am.
A hypocrite to the end,
As my lies, I did defend.
To the very core of my being,
It was the truth I was truly fleeing.
Escaping on the wings of lies,
I joined all the other flies,
To flee from everything I used to be.
I didn't get very far,
For my wings soon turned to tar,
Stopping me from seeing what I needed to see.
But now the truth is clear,
My destruction is very near.
Unless I can lose these lies that bind me.
They say the truth shall set you free,
And I really hope that comes to be,
Because I can't see through these tears in my eye.
I've been blind for all this time,
As if someone sprayed me with a lime,
And yet still, I kept on trying to fly.
But now my sight is finally clear,
And my life I can finally steer,
To wherever I n
