Influence 2
Author: Meridian Zuriel



Controls your fists
Makes you swear
Makes emotions flare
As if you donít care
Well, at the moment.
Influence makes you like
Well, at the moment.
Until you have qualms
Conviction hurts
Pricks the heart
Like a Black and Decker

Influence makes you hide
Makes you run (from yourself)
Makes you wish
You could leave the world
To never return
Makes you wish someone
Would put out the fire that continues to burn
Hoping they wonít find out the key
The key to your misery
