Obsession

Killing your next obsession waits
For the one before and once more
Another cult to prosper a belief
One more willing leader to chase

You look as if thirsty for bad ideas
Dive a little deeper, secure a spot
On the front row of his tall stacks
He won’t mind if you win the race

This idea only wants you to stay
As long as you believe his words
You’ll be imprisoned for today
With mind in a narrow alleyway

She must have it all, you see
The girl without her own dream
Makes it easy for them to enter
Where she muffles her own scream
