From mortal wounds we suffer
Old men outlaw us and break laws
Decide for youth
and celebrate
the disorder, the great disorder of this life
The departure, the sad departure to the endless river

Old inside
cold outside
In my hall where they can spy
and lock our minds
My conscience blind
and maybe it's worth to give up

And an old man came with giant steps
in the room where I lived alone
He kept his promise to destroy me
then cut my body and ate
my heart and brain

He stole my slice of glory
Outside the doors the world has gone
Suicide of youth
We celebrate
the disorder, the great disorder of this life
the departure, the sad departure to the endless river
the disorder, the great disorder of this life
the departure, the sad departure to the endless river

    General CommentAn alternative to the standard death/depression trappings of the genre. Feels forced at times but the maturity is undeniable.

    My Opinion"Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen." - Winston Churchill

    "If you're not a liberal when you're 20, you have no heart. If
    you're not a conservative when you're 40, you have no head." - Peter Rutland

    These two quotes come to mind when I hear this.
