Fade Away

This one is a little bit darker than my normal stuff. – AH

Everything fades
Time slips away
Stone turns to dust
and steel turns to rust

We go through the motions
We push with the notion
That our lives hold meaning
Yet here we lay bleeding

It’s always fine on the surface
But nevermind the preface
The opening sentence reads
“The truth is never as it seems”

Because we all have our pain
As time and life maim
And we all put on a face
In this lifes great race

We all step in time
We all stand in line
If only to learn
That this world burns

And in the end it’s for naught
As we take all we’ve got
And give it all away
Until everything fades.
