to be human, alone

Climb the ladder, join the ranks! 

Coffins sing your praise. 

Fall in line (learn to let go)

Complete the rhyme —

“I’m only human, I suppose.”

Watch

As rivers of annihilation worsen human sin

Saturated storms of poison writhe within their tins

Find a can of spoiled food, cure the ills inside of you

Laugh and snap an empty dream to hear its lonely breaking-scream

Fight with teeth to cut your friends, kill the ones who helped you win. 

You should enjoy your rusted crown 

Although

beware this most of all;

don’t fall (as you follow)

For nothing lives in the deep dark below.
