Once Was

Seeking to return to that which once was
Something that will never happen
If it was only a manufactured facade
Of senses and impressions to live
Inside an artifice
The price of sacrifice
For the wearing of ancient artifacts
Amulets of faith to ward off evil spirits of the night
Gathering together in the darkness of broad daylight to feed
On the mass need of food for thoughtless thought
Voices raised in clamorous pain because
Seeking to return to that which once was
