I took a walk, out to the courtyard

There I saw a couple, whispering

They seemed so jolly, and I was mad

I was mad they had what I've been wanting

I took a walk, through the river

There I saw a friendly creature

It was full of joy and innocense

and I was mad, no, furious

~

I know I created my own hell

But when does my torment end?

I acknowledge my errors, all of them

But why do I return to the pit, yet again?

~

I've seen and I've felt, a thousand pains

Yet none have broken me

I've lost and seen rot away

But I'm still marching, free

~

I know the face of suffering

And I am friend of loneliness

Yet the most unbearable of them all

Was tears running down your face, and it was my fault

~

I am a disaster, a tempest of emotions

But soon it will end, and end to my destruction
