Staring at a thousand yards of a concrete carcass
Following a trail of asphalt-sealed misery and gloom
I plead for a faulty synapse, or maybe a revisionist's pen
Criss-crossing the pockmarked earth seen for days

This is where the wildest dreams came to slowly die
Now amphetamine-laced souls and blood-stained mementos
I see scattered lines of grass that deserve much better
As the souls that fell to the machines that they oiled

A rusting, tilted warning sign
With no enforcer in sight
