    "Runs Cold"

    In my veins runs a cold substance

    Familiar to those scaly dwellers of the dark

    It puts my limbs into a state of costant chill

    It makes my eyes bleed apathy

    I realize now it is shame

    That runs through my veins

    Running cold, yet fast

    Conquering any thoughts from the light

    Disposing of their corpses in any scarred part of me

    But more important and devastating than this shame

    Is a self-grown fear

    And this thing lies like a king of capitalism

    Whenever I feel its sting, I feel the winter chill

    Outside, and in​
