"Life is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Yes, now it becomes so,
Unprepared and unexpectedly
Helpless world becomes victim of time.
And makes it a deathtrap.
You were racked with 'guilt and paranoia'
What is the guilt of the Saviours?
That meet their fate feeling
Are you 'out of joint' now?
I scare to hear the number.
The toll is mounting uncontrollably
Minute by minute.
Having everything we have nothing today.
And become a doll in the hands of you.
How long will you enjoy our desperate plight?
Do not be so cruel
And do not make life
More of an 'idiot's tale'.
And be a healer.
Forgiving mankind's ignorance.
Now awaiting a glimmer of hope
And to regain the lost momentum.
