P.X. Vexxus

Frozen inside an iron shell he hates

He lies frozen in time battling his fate

He cannot move, paralyzed he is awake

In a white room they watch him and wait

His family stare at him with sorrow and regret

They don't know he can see them watch and accept

The lab coats look at him with ever growing disgust

In hushed whispers, his accidental death they discuss

Within his broken mind he battles his growing fear

He fights an unseen enemy, holding him inside a sphere

A ball of thought holds him captive within a useless shell

As if his body were held in place by an evil spell

The lab coats group in the room with an evil scheme

They add something to the medicine, then leave him to dream

He lies silently, he awaits his inevitable death

But instead, the dead once more draw breath

He breaks the bindings, he tears out cords

He removes the wires, he runs like a corpse

He opens the door, the lab coats run and scream

He stabs them with a pen and slaughters the scene

With blood splattered against his clothes

He runs to the light, returning to the life he knows

He escapes his coma, reunites with his enemy

He collapses in front of his family, dying from ketamine
