55 (who?)

A World Of Gray

The dull sun glares upon our society
On this meaningless morning of today

Reflecting each others hypocrisy
Transfixed on each others gaze

Think-headed and relaxed
Nonchalant and vexed

Practicing the art of being ungrateful
Portraying the act of an imbecile
Some say that it's just life's cycle
As they lie through convincing smiles

Feeding false information
Teaching faults from past generations

There's all different kinds of people
Who carry around different kinds of evil

My skin turns to stone! / My blood turns to ash!
My heart I disowned! / My sins drown in a mass!

My organs turn to dust! / My sight becomes colorless!
My thoughts start to rust! / My cruelty becomes careless!

I don't know where we went wrong
The future's history can't be undone

Though it can be prevented
Spare the guilt of countless resentments

We have to decide on the decent choice
And watch the noise that comes form our voice
The dim moon smiles upon our possibilities
On this potential ominous night

Morally judging from our lack of diversity
I hope the chances for change are right

Because this has turned into a world
That I don't want to live in anymore

I don't want to endure another typical day
For I have become so sick of the sight of gray
As the world fades away
All I can see is this disgusting color of gray

Heh well that's kind of cool. I had to change my title. This is a revision, the first version was called "A Shade Of Gray" And it was titled that years before that stupid 50 shades of gray became a meme. So when I found out what that book was about, I was like "Shit....I need to change the title now....or else I'll look like a fool x.x"

It follows the same concept and it has some of the same stanzas in it, it just has a new title mostly.
