Abandoned, in my time of need
Left to walk alone.
And they ponder my ghostly stride
Gone. Now it’s way too late for them to atone.
They pulled out their deck
And played the best of their deprecating cards.
Religious mandate offered them subtle escape
Barred. As heedless heros sent their ruthless regards.
I was granted one wish. A stoppage time hand
With foolish faux friendship exposed.
If you need me call me. No I need you to walk with me
Closed. Through the valley of death before I’m deposed.
Don’t tell me you know a damn thing of love
Tenderness to you stares back from the chrome.
Friendship’s not free in a perfect world
Yawn. You can think about that when I’m too far gone!
