The Good Man From The Back

Artwork By Orpheus Blue

The quiet guy in the back sees all
He can see the short and the tall
He can see through the lies and half truths
From his empty lonely darkened booth
He listens to this endless cycle
He listens to the words that circle
He seeing through the soulless masks his peers wear
Avoiding their empty eyes that constantly stare
As his sips on his bottle of cheap beer
He realizes they all have something to fear
From this world of lost connections
This world of self served elections
What they need to fear is him
For he sees past the brim
He knows their secret evil lives
How they all carry sharpened knifes
He will not fall for their trickery
Their mind games and tomfoolery
Finishing his only drink
He does his best to shrink
Before he attempts to make his departure
Dodging their stares of lingering torture
For he is the good guy amongst lost and the bad
Though as he walks  he bumps into the future sad
On his way out caged room of the wicked lost
He desperately tries to warn them of the cost
The room becomes silent as he explains
How everyone here will cause them pains
He can feel the rooms attention on him now
Soon he is knocked down and forced to bow
To the liars and fakers all around his descent soul
Out of fear the sad agree to push him onto burning coal
Beaten and burned by the people in the cage
They toss him out of their house of rage
Slowly he regains his resolve
Standing again he decides to solve
All the problems with the world of liars and fakes
Cause they finally gave him all of what it takes
To destroy their masks once and for all
He will put it down in writing and call
This world to see the ugly side it tries to hide
Their rules he will no longer try to abide
He will do his best to bring the dark to light
The evil will try to stop him with all its might
But truth is stronger than anything we have and can save
So nothing will be able to put him in his early grave
