Shaded Eyes

The poison that's flowed through my veins

Has already run its course!

Stained and sick the heart and mind

Pain - now visions constant source.


The toxin spread into my eyes

Now shades the souls I see...

Drudging through thier sin-stained lives

The broken rules of centuries.


Nothing goes without a price

But still they take and don't think twice!

Till debt collector takes his toll

And debt consumes the wretched soul.

Through shaded eyes all things seem a little darker
