I'm gonna die

by

Frank Blacharczyk

Iím gonna die, Iím gonna die

gotta gun in my hand, ready

to fight the enemy, the elusive enemy.

Is he over there? Is he over here?

Iím gonna die because I donít know why,

where the enemy hides.

Shadows dance over there, over here.

Gotta gun in my hands donít know why

shooting at shadows that donít stop dancing.

I really donít hate anybody, though donít like anybody either.

So why am I here?

The mirror is my enemy, what I see isnít what I am.

There is no God who entertains, when seeking the enemy who is here, there and everywhere

but nowhere.

The entertainers sing and dance , here and there

like flames of fires creating a shadowy play,

deceptive against a moonlit wall.

Iím gonna die, Iím gonna die I shoot my gun,

because the shadows dance and I donít know why.
