Goliath in the garden of Eden

the only difference between a halo and a noose is positioning there aren’t any angels here just men with the ambitions to fly

men with the audacity to believe that they have earned the right to die in manner of a decrescenido at the end of a lyric that indulges in their mortality
that they do us some twisted honor in immortalizing themselves in that pain

we cry in that darkness that they leave because the society that we have built
doesn’t afford us sympathy as men as brothers as fathers
we speak of affection as if we wish to kill that idea and secretly seek it out
in our fantasies

we should never aspire to die as criminals stealing the hearts and minds
of those in proximty we have no right to fill eden with addicts
addicted to the roads that twist and bind and break like the tracks in a junkies arm
the roads that lead away from love and light

but we leave that beauty
to be tended by the calligraphers hand
knowing nomatter how beautiful lettering the story still reads the same
