Painful the mortality we all observe
Taking your first breath -countdown unto death.
Bodies twist like grotesque mannequins
Decades leave just a frame of decay.
Can you feel your days slipping away?
Until you're old and grey, trappped in a cage.
Scream at your face in a mirror
Your mortal life reflects fear and rage.

And I don't want to live like this
So I live my life like it's fiction.
And I don't want to live like this
The hands of time my affliction.

Now I feel like I am trapped inside
A mortal coil with too much pride.
And one day I know I'll be released
But this really is no way to live like this.
No book can provide any remedy
Affliction can't be unlocked by a key.
One day the winds will blow me unto dust
One day we'll be memories and dust.

(From the moment of birth I started to rot away
It feels like flesh traps me like a cage.
So I hope something will change someday
And not just live this life of apathy).
