Something I came up with working with a friend of mine on a song:

“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take”

As I leave my dreams
Male Aurora, no longer asleep
Clock is ticking, nineteen years
Almost out of T-I-M-E

If I am to die at a tender twenty-five
Then when I’m twenty-three where will I be?
See cockfights then I hear about wars
Is that what Most High sees?
What really happens when I drop to my knees?
When a puppet walks without strings?
If the planets align in the nighttime sky why the fuck should it matter to me?

Well? Ain’t you gonna answer, G?
You brought me here, but you don’t wanna answer me?
I’ve been waiting all my life for a moment like this
Tell me why my grandmother got cancer, G?
Tell my why did my cousin have to die?
Why do I spend every day living lies?
Why do I spend every hour with my eyes to the sky?
Lord please give me a sign!

Every day and night scrutinizing life
The pain, the anger, the void, the strife
The sands of time fall closer still
But I pray to the Lord that I won’t be killed

“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take”
