Walls Up

Walls up!

I hear the mortar

and trowel

slide on red brick


Walls up

Tears us down

Walls up!

A man must learn

to help himself

Feelings are for faggots

and femmes

Walls up

We bow down

Walls up!

Those aren't people

out there

they say

just ghosts haunting

abandoned shells

Walls up

Shoot them down

Walls up!

Eyes down!

Fight to the death

for the American dream.


to be alone

behind walls

we build


but suffocating.
