Barren; Part 1 (2001)



I recall everything, all I have done
My world so far away, the setting sun
Amidst the world, amidst the sin
Never wanting, never taking to live again
Childhood memories, darkened in this day
Life that could have been-yesterday
Hopeless thoughts run wild in my mind
Their since the beginning of time
Fallen from heaven, to hell below
Fallen from grace, no where to go
Fighting, waring in the final days
My sword stained, stands where I lie
Barren-I am fallen
Barren-I am captive
Barren-I am evil
Barren-Lost my soul
Incomplete
Exhausted, my life has ailed
My world crumbles amidst the fells
