All that I want to know Am I the man I’m supposed to be For I fear I’ve become Encapsulated in depravity All that I want to know Was it my destiny To lose hope in humanity And be alone for eternity All that I want to know Is why I no longer have The desire to find One who will care for me All that I want to know Is will anyone hear My soul screaming Into eternity

Strapped into a machine of pain Recurring visions cloud my mind Blistering rage fills my ears As pulsing anger results in kind Time and space are turning red As flashing visions cloud my eyes A world of unrelenting hate Delicately woven within the lies My soul escapes my body’s confines As I dance with images of pain The rage that’s built up since my birth Is going to drive me blindly insane The violence builds up to a crescendo As I feel my body burning with hate Gritting my teeth as my body twitches The rage I’ve felt will not soon abate The restraints come loose and now I’m free To destroy whatever gets in my way I see the ones who’ve put me here And now with their lives, they must pay Grabbing the nearest metal object To pound and thrash their bodies dead I beat them to death and destroy the machine That fueled the rage within my head Incinerating rage Consumed my mind Violence in my wake Victims of the grind They tried to destroy me Yet murder was their fate For they left me Burning with hate

A new dawn smiles upon me The sun’s warmth kisses my face This is a day, free from confusion This is a day, free from your lies I wanted to know where you would lead me I had a feeling you’d lead me astray Indeed you did, but I’ve regained my focus And the ties between us have been slain A fleeting hope has now fled Yet I have no more tears to shed A new beginning has arrived Now I can get on with my life I step out into the world Yesterday’s pain I no longer feel I still can’t say that I trust your kind Yet the pain you caused has left my mind I wanted to know where you would lead me I had a feeling you’d lead me astray Indeed you did, but I’ve regained my focus And the ties between us have been slain A fleeting hope has now fled Yet I have no more tears to shed A new beginning has arrived Now I can get on with my life

Stuck in the past A world of fading memories The times you had And the joy that came with them Now you sit Entrenched in existence But what you desire Can never be recreated Clinging to a sinking hope Reminiscing on a broken dream The times you’ve had will never be returned It’s all enough to make you scream Wasting all of the time that’s left The sickness in you sours your mind Pale and ashen your flesh has become But to your health, you’ve become blind The further in you go The closer you become To triggering your end Under a dying sun Now you are surrounded By all kinds of people But it’s almost like They’re not really there You’re so involved In visions of your past That you don’t care About the future that awaits you Clinging to a sinking hope Reminiscing on a broken dream The times you’ve had will never be returned It’s all enough to make you scream Wasting all of the time that’s left The sickness in you sours your mind Pale and ashen your flesh has become But to your health, you’ve become blind The further in you go The closer you become To triggering your end Under a dying sun

Emotional scars run deep Deep in my soul The pain that I feel Is out of control The lack of human compassion Has afflicted me Driving me closer to Depravity But that’s alright ’Cause I’ll rise Above The pain that won’t bring me down No it won’t bring me down ’Cause I’ll rise Above And beat the weakness From my soul I turned my back On a girl who cared for me Although we made up The same, things would not be After all these years I wonder what might have been She’d probably still be here And still be my friend But that’s alright ’Cause I’ll rise Above The pain that won’t bring me down No it won’t bring me down ’Cause I’ll rise Above And beat the weakness From my soul Oh, I’ll beat it from my soul ’Cause I’ll rise Above And nothing will stop me Nothing at all!

It all began one fateful day When you invited me your way All the secrets you shared with me If only from these memories, I could be free I know I’ll never be free From the thoughts of you in my head Yet now you mean nothing to me So you might as well be dead! Consumed by the pain you expressed To a younger age, I regressed An age full of pain and despair Yet you weren’t concerned with how much I cared I know I’ll never be free From the thoughts of you in my head Yet now you mean nothing to me So you might as well be dead! The final chapter was not written well As the bitterness does still dwell But now you’ll only get one thing from me Complete and utter apathy I know I’ll never be free From the thoughts of you in my head Yet now you mean nothing to me So you might as well be dead!

Oh baby baby, I want your love In your eyes, I see the stars above Oh baby baby, I want your love You set me free like the flight of a dove Oh baby baby, I think you’re neat You’re full of sugar, it makes you sweet Oh baby baby, I think I love you Nothing in the world could be more true Oh baby baby, you make me smile No other woman has done that in a while Oh baby baby, will you be mine? I think my life with you would be just fine Oh baby baby, I want your love In your eyes, I see the stars above Oh baby baby, I want your love You set me free like the flight of a dove

I loved her, yet she loved me not For independence was not something she sought Stifled for years, but it let her escape The unjust crime of stepfatherly rape She, a lost soul, on a search for hope Thoughts of her daughter helped her cope As did the friendships she acquired at times Though some of those friends were involved in crimes She was unfortunate in her storied past Her list of misfortunes was indeed vast She sometimes felt like the scum of the earth So she put me down to increase her self-worth I was in love, so it was alright At least until that one fateful night Her boyfriend was there, and they fondled and kissed I did not take that well, it made me quite pissed The future was bleak, as my love did abate For when I would see her, I would burn with hate The day finally came when I saw her no more The relief that I felt filled me to my core Now much time has passed, there is no more pain I’ve found my desire to love once again Yet sometimes it’s painful to call up her name As a field of heather burns slowly in flame

Oh, wintry nights The wind burns my face As I walk alone Through these hallowed lands The only light to be seen Is the glow of the moon Which is seen from time to time Gazing through the clouds The snow is fresh And delicate to the touch Just like the flesh Of an elegant woman Continuing on Through the wake of the storm I must find some place To rest my bones It’s getting colder The usefulness of my clothes Is beginning to wane As I grow cold to the bone My joints are stiffening My body is trying to give up But my mind Will not let it succumb Oh, how much longer ’Til I find shelter And can escape this Merciless winter? For my body is going And my will is weakening As I contemplate Lying down in the snow But will there be anywhere For this old soul to rest? But will there be anywhere To shelter me from the cold? But will there be anywhere That I can cleanse my body? But will there be anywhere That I can call home? As I continue I wonder what life has in store For me in the future And I am left with two options I could give up Lie down in the snow And wait for the winter To end my existence Or I could continue Fighting this weather And try to find a kind person Who’d let me stay the night Being a man of virtue I cannot end my life this way There’s too much more to experience So I continue on my way But will there be anywhere For this old soul to rest? But will there be anywhere To shelter me from the cold? But will there be anywhere That I can cleanse my body? But will there be anywhere That I can call home?
