      Abstract and Depressing Song/Poem

      "Thirty Days in Another World"



      Across the seas of fire
      The lakes of frozen flame
      We arrive at the gates forged of shadow and light
      And we dance on the carnival night

      We are here for a single purpose
      For a single ancient climb across
      The limericks of life are a mile high
      And the shadows cast are always lost

      Here we are and we don't know what to do
      Falling through the seas of green and blue
      Banishing the night and the shadow's play
      Here we are for thirty days

      Tomorrow just won't be the same
      Great cathedrals of unending flame
      Stand upon the mountains of human pride
      Dancing on the carnival night

      Thirty days in another world
      Thirty shadows fall upon the walls
      Thirty million dieing nightly
      And yet again, the sun shines brightly

      Thirty days in the second century
      Thirty days since the sun was lost
      A weekend traveler through our world
      Sees the light on the carnival night

      Deathly darkness so thick and deep
      The steadily rotating shadows
      Candle of the frozen light
      Falling through the endless night

      Thirty days in another world
      Thirty shadows fall upon the walls
      Thirty million dieing nightly
      And yet again, the sun shines brightly

      We've arrived right back where we started
      Final stop on the road to die
      Humanity falls in a flash of light
      A joyous dance on the carnival night




      I see it as being about society and extremely depressing, but my friend thinks it's a happy song and is about love (I don't know why either), my other ex-girlfriend thinks its about death, and my English teacher thinks it makes no sense (which it doesn't).

      I like it a lot! Though, I don't much understnad it...

      Anyway, I like the voice I was hearing in my head when I read the "thirty.." parts, as if in some sort of a cool song.
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      Thanks! It was originally going to be a song, but I turned it into a poem after I dropped out of music class.

      I understand it, and I thought it was about society and it's pain O_o. I love it!

      Though understanding it probably makes me weird...XD


      Go insane for me, I'm that selfish you see
      We're a wicked rhyme, a line followed
      By the darkest picture, making everyone cry
