 Fierce is the tide of vengeance

Says the maker of my demise

I’ve shuffled the cards too often

Searching for somewhere to hide

All I wanted was to be loved

At the cost that was unseen

Here I am in the midst of this madness

Ripping away what’s left of my seams

No shadows to run to for shelter

There are no answers only defeat

Save my torment -  released the night

Bear no vindication within my retreat

This is all that was left of me

Now defeated and dead I am useless

Take the breath of my life – let it be

All is lost – It’s just a vast room of hell now

No one else but the damned and demented

Circles of insanity surround us all

By the hands of the world we’ve consented

Seperated now to become one I’d vowed not to be

Never, I said would I let it come to this

So my words were heard from an enemy

Who took a chance for revenge and did not miss

All I know is what I’ve had is the tie that bound

Me to reality and forgiveness and release

When it’s lost I will only seek out my redemption

Destroying those who’ve helped destroy me.
