It’s hot down here

It’s hot down here
By AJ O’Brien.

Captured by death
came at me from behind
the devil lay in wait,
stole my soul.
Man, am I in a bind.

Whispered a rancid demon,
Hear the Master’s word
you will be set aflame
and your pleas for death
shall go unheard.

You are kidding me
I’m really at a loss,
what did I do wrong?
I don’t belong down here.
Go get your boss.

You will burn for eternity
your soul be dammed,
the stench of your corruption
shall bring joy
to this unholy land.

You’re not listening to me, are you?

And the sun still shone

And the sun still shone.

I cry for the lonely
and pray for those
that cannot cope.
Wishing dreams
would come true
for those who live in hope.

Holding the hand of sorrow
through darkest days,
listening for words unsaid.
Watching out for each other,
because the blind,
they need to be led.

Above and beyond

Above and beyond
By AJ O’Brien.

Struggling for light
my mind high and dry
seeking only solitude
beneath a crowded sky.

Madness, so enticing,
kneeling before a killer’s grave,
can you forgive me Lord
her soul I could not save.

Darkness, a lonely companion
my heart is midnight black,
I can no longer abide
the thought of looking back.

I pierce my heart
with a dagger long,
falling falling
beneath her empty song.

Overload

Overload
By AJ O’Brien.

I know a man with a plan
to kill as many people as he can.
His mind, damaged and erratic,
the gun, fully automatic.

Armed and ready to go
I held him within, screaming no.

I fought him tooth and nail
knowing I must not fail.
But he drinks from the inner me
our lust for a killing spree.

I put the gun to his head
pulled the trigger. And we lay dead.

And the room fell quiet
just another empty riot.
But he was brave,
so many lives he did save.
