Leper Colony

October 20, 2012 by  

Open the gate to the Leper Colony

To a catalogue of quarantined ideas

Where the one eyed madmen are imprisoned by the blind

To the open sore beneath a concrete sky

 

Open the gate

Open the gate

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

 

Open the gate to the place of all lost causes

To the death of dreams, to the road that goes nowhere

To the drone of traffic passing by outside

And the rubbish sacks melting in the sun

 

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

Open the gate

 

Open the gate to a thousand unknown faces

That hide behind a thousand different masks

Where you become a stranger to yourself

In the cattle truck at the end of the line

 

Open your mind

Open your mind

 

Open the gate to the prison of your mind

To the hanging room of your imagination

To the death of meaning and all that went before

You’re a dead man walking, to the wall.

 

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

Open the gate to the last Leper Colony

Open your mind, its the last Leper Colony
