And they danced to the beat of the drums,
Like they have been doing for a millennium.
And the fire burned hot and high, into the night,
They danced and they danced until mornings light.

My head tossed back, forced me to take a sip,
The sticky red substance, coating my lips.
My mouth slammed closed, I choke it all down,
A flash in my eyes, so many things I am shown.

Slam it down, drink it up,
Sip from the eternal cup.
You won't find any happiness there,
But it will make you, more aware.

Cut the ties, break the chains,
So only your innocence remains.
See everything or nothing at all,
Learn to climb, or enjoy the fall


I stumble as I try and get to my feet,
Choking on the intense smoke and heat.
I am blinded by ash, it burns my eyes,
Grab at the hand, of a native passing by.

Their bodies are covered from head to toe,
With ancient writings, of what I don't know,
Carved deep in the flesh, the words glow white,
Illuminating the darkness with their soft light.


Slam it down, drink it up,
Sip from the eternal cup.
You won't find any happiness there,
But it will make you, more aware.

Cut the ties, break the chains,
So only your innocence remains.
See everything or nothing at all,
Learn to climb, or enjoy the fall


They pushed and they shoved me until each had a turn,
And wherever they touched me, the skin it did burn.
I looked down at my body all covered with words,
I danced with them blindly, caring not what occured.


They stop me and place me in front of the fire,
Smiling and laughing, give me all I desire.
As the flames reach into the skies darkest night,
I know somethings amiss, I know somethings not right.


Slam it down, drink it up,
Sip from the eternal cup.
You won't find any happiness there,
But it will make you, more aware.

Cut the ties, break the chains,
So only your innocence remains.
See everything or nothing at all,
Learn to climb, or enjoy the fall



I try to leave, but they force me to stay,
And as the night starts to fade into day,
I finally realize what I am, to all of them,
Nothing more then a sacrificial lamb.

The flames are at their highest right now,
I know this is where my life ends somehow.
The moment that this fact shows on my face,
I open my eyes, a dream that never took place.

Thanks,
