Liquid reality fragile as a flame
Destroyed by one ghost’s passing
On a cold windless night a babe with no name
For his heart was apart, and his breath thick with wanting

When one life vanishes another takes its place
But my father ignores this philosophy
On a cold windless night a blanket with no name
Here a lone soul starts his biography

A street urchin I was left to my own devices
From an early age I was filled with malice
On a cold windless night a king with no name
Rules over his cardboard palace

A paper bag on my back and loss in my eyes
Hand outstretched lips pleading
On a cold windless night a dog with no name
On the end of a stick finds meaning

I’m taken in by a counterfeit soul
Freedom at the end of his lead
On a cold windless night a soul with no name
Is given for fire and feed

I am dancing twirling gracefully
Painting crimson on the snow
On a cold windless night a killer with no name
Falling farther with every blow

A man dies every time another is born
I am a man at eleven
On a cold windless night a babe with no name
Closes his eyes and is not forgiven
i was going for something epic esque
but then it turned out kinda hard to follow
so i'm gonna explain it:

stanza 1-2: Kid is born, mom dies in childbirth, dad is angry and sad and drunk and leaves the kid on the street

stanza 3-4: Basically just telling about how he lived on the street and begged and got harassed

stanza 5: A older boy adopts him into his gang giving him food and shelter in exchange for his services as a killer

stanza 6: he kills someone for the older kid

stanza 7: he deeeaaaaad

i might make it longer i'm kind of envisioning a really epic song/ballad
