Losing Faith – Written Tuesday 5th January 1993 (Aged 17)

Losing Faith

losing faith in this world we are living in
losing faith in everything i have got
a distorted reality exists in my head
looking, insanity, he is king
everything has gone to pot
losing faith in all my morals
i am even beginning to wonder about my feelings
looking at the fuzzy television screen
chaos, he rules, he is the king
maybe i am just a weird boy
with a bleak outlook on everything
last night, when i flew
i saw strange shapes and heard broken screams
all it was, was the demon that lives inside me
and all of you,
losing faith in my dreams
no screams, just beings that care
losing faith in this nice nightmare
losing faith in the people who so often –
think they are right
losing faith, all i do is lie awake at night
