Play

Scream
Breaking through
Dream
Tearing through
 
Suddenly into a light so bright
All that went before seems now as night
Dream in technicolor black and white
Sharp and focussed as a rifle sight
 
And I say "What is life"
"Lived this way, anyway?"
How may I find today
At the end of the play?
 
Avatar from a computer game
Strides the world outside to make a name
Twisting turning hostile fire or tame
Fantasy reality the same
 
And I say "What is life"
"Lived this way, anyway?"
How may I find today
At the end of the play?
 
Aim and fire, shoot for your desire
Time to kill or take a pill
Acid drops fall to the top
We never stop
We live in shock
We never stop
We never stop
We never stop
