Star-Eyed Scorpio

Locks securing the watchtower let loose black canines out to the yard
To protect his better interests he tucks away his silver key
To the powers that will always be
That became his motivation, steal his doubt and tell him all is just fine
So he doses up for another day induces his primordial Oz
In Jericho nods this star-eyed Scorpio
To a kid with the shaggy mane his two eyes made of Pyrex and glass
Hypnotic beams hit from his light fractal gaze
Just things casting shadows as the moon wains
The hallucinations may pass bu the voices are guiding and deafening
The stars sing to him ancient rimes, yet he denies
The moral of the tale
Something calls him back inside the iron cell with a bag of new tricks
And two shiny new dimes, will he always ride a reaping scythe
With outstretched arms in rapture missing all of the clues
And all the paths of escape, still he steps into the rodeo
This final nightmares, ends for this star-eyed Scorpio
