Prison Tattoo

tattoo

A single tear

Silhouette of death

Blood stained hands

Tales from the crypt

Incarnation of the crow

Some wear with honor

Some wear with regret

Some sit in concrete blocks

Tell stories of who they shot

Gang sign flow

Fingers interlock

Stand up tall

 Run the streets

Take exit MS-13

Dumplings

dumplings

Stoney silence

Contained in this cage

Confounded by dumplings

Karmic Justice

For a crime against the forgotten

Which end of the pendulum do you swing?

Detached from the real

Imposed solidarity

Come to terms with the past

For if you delve into the previous continuum too often

You may become just another looped crescendo

That has been playing over and over as the record skips

The smooth operator has left the building

Obsessed by the monotonous

Or perhaps it could be

When the record finally stops

Brainwashed in the madness

Morph into a gaseous form

The great white pearly gates open in the big blue sky

No matter how far those visions of half truths become compressed

An Old Boy you will always be…
