PostSubject: only a house of cards   Tue Feb 09, 2016 1:50 pm

Folly had me follow her, and to her games my life I gave
Little did I know that the dead were there, and her guests are in the depths of the grave...

I was the king of my castle, my tassle swinging from my horns
but when the delusional king dies, why is it no one mourns
A pawn upon a throne shown hearts of razor blades
Lover, hater, traitor...a jack of all trades
Spades are very useful when one digs his own hole
Diamonds in the sky getting clubbed within my soul
Roll the dice twice amongst the beautiful faces
A joker playing solitaire trumps the two-faced aces
Place a rook by a brook with a queen and a rose
and you'll see heart, mind, body and soul...fall like dominoes
Ready, aim, fire...a 21-gun salute
The 5-card stud is dead read the note in his funeral suit
Cry one name within this game, the broken joker warns...
One Christ, one King, one everything...bow down to the crown of thorns
for the soul stirs embers into life's charred shards
This world is not your home, my child...only a house of cards...

"Checkmate, mate...your king has fallen down
Kneel to your master as I hold aloft the crown"
Cellmate, wait...these are but games of worldly prison
You'll soon be back to your flames, for you see...my King...is risen
