20 Questions


Can we play "20 questions"?
I have so many to ask
But, I'll limit myself to twenty
Because too much will break your back

Can we play "20 Questions"?
I want to ask one for each stolen life
I want you to feel what you stole from this night
One question for each little child
And six more to remind me
About the pain that your sorry ass reaped

Can we play "20 questions?"
I have so many to ask
But, I know there's no chance for that
Because you're just a cowardly ass

Tonight, my cursed gift will grant me
That chance to remind you what's real
Because tonight, instead of dreaming
I'll be ferrying you with the dead

Tonight, I will introduce you
To the lights you stamped out
Because, tonight instead of dreaming
I'll make you wish you weren't dead

The irony, that I will now mention
You childish, selfish little punk
If you had so much hate for your mommy
You should have opened yourself up

Because twenty innocent victims
And five others weren't given a chance
Because you were broken and twisted
You've snubbed out these lives with your hands

So, tonight when I fall to my slumber
I'll have twenty questions to ask
I'm the one taking you under
But they'll be there at my back

You took their lives.
You ruined this night
You destroyed this season
With your own selfish treason

And to think..regretfully so
That I made a stupid joke
About twenty stupid boxes
And twenty more projects
When I heard the news
Nothing else mattered, but you

I'm almost sure that your senseless bravado
The fame that you will now have
Will be more than this world can undo
So, I have twenty questions to ask

And when we cross that river in the night
I won't be deciding your fate
You will have to answer to every child
And the people that you took away

I won't be alone tonight
I've enlistened a powerful friend
And when you are facing the smoothie
You'll wish that you weren't dead

So, when you face me on the riverbank
On the ferry I command
Remember all your shitty ways
And think about every lost chance

Author's Notes/Comments: 

To Adam Lanza....you will now rest in pieces.

So heartbreaking to hear

So heartbreaking to hear about the lives that were lost.
My thoughts, and prayers go out to the families.
I've never had children..so I couldn't even begin to imagine the fear..
I hope you get to ask your questions ROC.

Have always had children, that aren't biologically mine...but mine, nonetheless

And I will say, that it wasn't my questions he had to answer...
Instead of fire and brimstone...instead of seventy two virgins....or a date with St. Pete...
Last night in the realm between, he was forced to face twenty innocent and confused souls, each one teary eyed and scared, and each one deserving of a reason for such senselessness...and i'll not rest peacefully, until each gets their answer...

What is there to say, his

What is there to say, his actions speak loudly enough.

And this word's a little darker
And we all grow a little starker.

I'd say God help us but the evil in this world is mankinds doing and we shall be held responsible.gj

Long days and pleasant nights

Brilliant RoC. As sickeningly

Brilliant RoC.
As sickeningly terrible the actions of this young man,
spare his soul of hell if you can within your thoughts.
Perhaps he had been living there for too long.
A tragedy which stole innocent young lives
through the hand of a disfigured soul.
So so freaking sad on many fronts : (

to the poor souls who were

to the poor souls who were lost
may you rest in peace
my deepest sympathies go to
the parents and the deceased
i hope his soul is reborn so he
can be burnt, beaten, and diseased
drowned in lava seas, i hope he
contracts leprosy, and suffers for eternity
im sorry for this travesty for
this infinitely sorrowful time
may your lost ones be with you
forever in heart and mind
my words can not express
i dont think anything could define
my love goes out to you, as theres
does from their lords side

Not my loved ones...

But that makes me no less affected by it...
and trust me when I tell you...that death will not be an escape for him...
