lyrics

Gasping, I awoke
Like one ashore from dangerous seas
Looks back at the deep that he’s escaped
My thoughts returning
Still fleeing to regard
That grim defile thats never left any alive
Who stayed there

After resting my weary body
I started again across the wilderness
My left foot always lower on the hill
So i began again to ruin my self
Back down
Down into the deep

Now I look up from those depths that pierce my hear with terror
And I see wavy those rays of that bright planet
The one that shows the Right Road to everyone, whatever their journey
And I felt the terror ease that churned in my hearts lake
Through all my darkest nights

Midway on my life’s journey
I found myself in a dark wood
The Right Road lost
To tell about those woods is tough
So tangled and rough and savage
That thinking of them now i can feel that old fear stirring
Death can hardly be more bitter

Now in this moment of despair
I look around for a helping hand
But they’ve all fled
So its all done

All fled. All done
So lift me on the pyre;
The feast is over,
The lamps expire.

What kind of death
Will free me from the living
I wonder what kind of death that I’ve already grown inside of me
And what kind of punishment awaits me
For struggling with just living
It can’t be half as bad as the punishment that already lives inside me

Gasping, I awoke again
Spit up from the sea of the living
I look back at the deep that I’ve escaped
My thoughts returning
Still fleeing to regard
That grim defile thats never left any alive
Who stayed there

I won’t stay there
