    what shall you be in paradise ?

    nor a fox not wise
    with claws and pipes

    a forest's breath
    with death ripe


    just a day in paradise,
    that's all i pray.


    no fool for a price
    nor a herd for a prize

    malfunctioning slight
    chocked with parasites


    just a day in paradise,
    if it wasn't for today.


    spoiled thoughts
    and foiled spite

    caught then boxed
    with no air to bite

    lost and left,
    kept for the nights

    in transparent red
    herein painted quiet


    just a day in paradise,
    for the one who pays.


    in a stranger's head
    with debt of dice

    where heaven lays
    and the dead shall rise

    seven solemn days
    that'll never come twice

    mourning for prey
    by a mornings pride


    just a day in paradise,
    for a day in paradise

    if it wasn't for today.


    kissed by the fire
    shut with wire

    no word nor desire
    and made in ice


    broken prism's charm
    in arms of a lover
    born away and in white

    doused in hope
    and not a dime to pay
    no dream nor life


    just a day in paradise,
    and it'll never go away.


    where beauty slays
    and inferno hides

    dante's meal
    and a mountains might

    where a valley bleeds
    from a pelters diet

    melting the stones
    and people alike


    just a day in paradise,
    that's all there's to say.


    whence scars bleed
    opened far wide

    and the hour sleeps
    in fear and fright

    where words fail
    to tell and describe

    rotten and stale
    fighting the lights


    just a day in paradise,
    for the one who stayed.


    nor a fox not wise
    with claws and pipes

    a forest's breath
    with death ripe


    just a day in paradise,
    and that's all i pray.
