Rusty Lamp (Early Idea) – Written December 1992 (Aged 17)

Rusty Lamp

the madman is out with a gun
you had all better run
sometimes the world is not so much fun
paranoia rocks those with a fragile mind
they are broken up inside
everyone sees their silent cries
and hears their loud lies
felons in lace come to live in the empty space
lonely and false in the head
of the mirror man in pain
life is fragile and he is so insane
