Legions have proclaimed
everlasting love
till death do us part

days linger
ring on a finger
lost folk singer
when does the death start

has reason died
while both cried
and both lied
when does the death start

the world filled with sin
the world found within
soft whispers above the din
when does the death start

new options weighed
games are played
everyone’s afraid
when does the death start

conspiring to make life right
frantically spinning day into night
tunnels end with no light
when does the death start

when does the death start
never together…always apart
horse behind the cart
facing now with broken heart

in for a dollar started with a dime
seemed so right and became a crime
all that’s left is this cheap rhyme
facing now with broken heart

when does the death start

till death do us part

when does the death start

so find me now
in the morgue of my mind
wrapped in frustration
leaving best laid plans behind
embarking yet again
on that self serving path
one less one
you do the math

fore there is always a sunrise
always another day
one day i’ll be released
from games my parents played

till death do us part

when does the death start……………………..
