A World of Innocence MAG

A bow dragged across innocent strings.
A dark marker, ruining a blank page.

A young girl, caught.
In the middle of a bad phase.

You cannot leave now.
Because you are surrounded.

The music can't be stopped
It's already begun to play.

A line of lies, tied together by nothing.
A lie detector jumping upon them.

An awful sob,
Caught in the middle of a giggle.

Nothing to do, so much to think.
A wicked laugh, right before everything bad.

And a cruel heart, plastered on your sleeve.
Ready to catch anything,
Ready to shatter something smaller.

Once, even a fly is attached
You fall in love, and destroy it all.

Once a false word is said,
People begin to believe every syllable.

An innocent world,
Full of very bad people.
