Slivers of cold laced in my mind Sewn shut upon the light of innocence Paradise lost, a lost cause A fabric torn and thrown aside Loneliness has found its bride Voices burrowing into my mind With the pitch of death, repeating my name Beckoning me home The war is lost to me I know not the strategy of popularity Vertigo of confusion, despair Whipped around on a macabre carnival ride Where ups are few and downs are abundant Leading the way to the chill of night Stealing my resolution with a serpent's bite Scrambling up the sides of my home The honeymoon is over I hear the bell toll I grasp for threads of gold and come up empty The taunts and jeers leaving me filthy I wash in the dirtied waters of my life Force open my eyes underneath the surface Choke on regret and tear open my skin Ripping out self-pity that smiles a Cheshire grin Threading love on the needle to repair others' sin Piercing lightning blinds my eyes Tears away the anchor and leaves me at the mercy of the sea Cry a new river, look for an oar Begging for a rope tossed From the safety of the harbour of the found and lost Tenuous threads of salty webs Catch hold of me and bring me in Balance my glass body on the edge of A ravine of no return while Fear pushes at me with its crooked smile A new knife gleams and is sharpened By one with an old ax to grind From a painful time, one that rips out stitches From my soul and replaces it with the glow Of raw emotion with a cruel blow Solace seeker down the wrong trail I stumble blindly down the familiar path That angels fear to tread, consecrating the battle With my anguished cries Unable to discern truth from the lies Slashed at all sides, my tears bringing life To mongers of pain and wielders of flame Hit the ground, pray for cover Wondering if the light of day Is a heartbeat or an eternity away Broken, fallen, I cannot go on with the fight That shakes me to the bone, tears my flesh Come embrace me, blackness of night I'd rather be blind if I cannot feel the light © Copyright Angel 1998
