John, Jr. Klinga

Conclusion

In the lake of trees
Lies a forest of tears
No one sees
No one hears

Lies pour down
As droplets slip out
Longing to cry
Longing to shout

Heart, burning
My fire beats fast
Dismal future
Dismal past

Thoughts tumbling
Rocks are stuck
Just my life
Just my luck

My fog, covered
A dream rolls in
Just can't work
Just can't win

I'm fading
All extinguished
It's all gone
It's finished
