Off the Beaten Path


Sick-minded people play mind-wrenching games
Drown the most innocent in their own shame
Back you into a corner and leave you there to corrode
Pain and suffering causing you to silently explode
Downwardly spiral until you have nowhere to go
Blame yourself because thats all that you know
Lies become reality when you cant face the fact
For how can you admit that your loved-one attacked?
So you try to live on with uncertainty of your life
Continue on, with your cycle of strife
For anxiety of what to expect whittles you straight to the bone
Quite too often the unknown fear is the fear of the unknown
