Drowning my own mind to keep it normal.
Bleeding memories through my veins encircle
Banished from the gallows
Blatantly, yet patiently, arise from depths of complacency
to release me from relief of pain and sorrow.
The hands forever ingrained inside me... broken.
Reminiscent of innocence well gone.
It is here inside the corners, I am forced to move it forward
with a baggage, ball and chain I label darkness.
Blood has never satisfied my hunger.
Trust, an all too foreign concept thrown
From a withered worthless liar,
heart like ice and eyes of fire
I am everything and nothing all at once.
My grave has dug itself, yet it is shallow.
Dripping with the silence of regret.
With a rope around my neck and a sword inside my back
I am forced within my home inside the ground.
A tree that covers the earth stretches above me
Whispering the melodies of time
It is here my restless soul
moves on to its own rhythm
within my song that takes me to the cosmos
I am home.
