There is only one way out
One word left to shout
The last little slope to climb
Then my feet slip again
Your threatening voice
Gets me back up on my feet again

I will find the truth within your skin
You keep feeding me distractions
Feeding me lies
But I know the truth is there
In fragments
in bits
and pieces

Tall and slender
But your eyes are lustreless
Your facade may glimmer
Your surface may be smooth silk
You've been convinced of your own illusions
But your weary eyes unveil a sinner

Running...
Steadily you hunt me down
Until my feet collapse
Gasping...
You never rest
Struggling to breathe
You try to sink me in the mud

My dearest enslaved
Shackled
Locked up in my cage
My dearest enslaved
Fragile beauty depraved

    General CommentSeems to be about someone who is almost owned in a way that is a slave, or is being controlled and manipulated, pushing that person further into somewhere they don't like.

    General CommentThe title is spelled differently to the only form of the word I could look up. Endogenesis is a development or growth from within. This is about someone trying to make a desperate bid for freedom and an act of defiance. What they are running from spurns them forward. Whatever this thing is I'm not sure, it could be religion, love, slavery. All we know is that it is an opressor. This opressor is being decieved as part of the process of freedom and they want the truth. I think it will be derived in a posibly cruel and humiliating fashion due to the mention of bits and pieces...maybe even torture. The opressor is also showing a more compassionate side. It tries to persuade the person that they are fooling themself. The person continues their effot to escape, but then opessor is too stong and once again they find themself in captivity.
