And now I finally see-
The true face of faith that I once held so dearly
This sensation is somewhat familiar-
My thick tears become entangled
I clench my trembling fists-
As a regretful prayer exits my tainted lips
Blindly lead down this beaten path!
Reaching the end forces me to despise the past
Hymns of comfort have left me feeling torn!
This flawed cross can't protect me anymore
I always reached for what wasn't even there!
The darkness becomes clear as the light disappears
I kiss the welcoming abyss / Closing the rift I once lived
Clouds drift / Body lifts
Winds wisp / Tears twist
My pain and peace quickly shift / The overpowering memories are swift
You were only a dreaming act!
And you managed to slip through my hands
Let the halos and golden gates be erased!
I shouldn't fall if there's no such thing as grace
It was all just a metaphor to help my mind cope!
Fusing night terrors with illusions and hope
And now you see what you've done to me-
I was once fooled but now I see clearly
A front row show of the damage that faith can bestow-
The last oblation had to be my very own soul
I open my eyes and I'm falling away from the sky-
Cloud waves give birth to life's newest sacrifice
