There are things that are way more important than you yourself, but will you let it direct your life? You may devote yourself completely after making certain promises and vows. But can you call
yourself a man if you abandon a lady you're meant to protect in order to find happiness? Should you suffer through it forever? Even if you're not given anything in return other than the knowledge
that you've protected someone you care about?

I saw her future
broken inside
No matter 
how hard she tried

If i left her alone
she'd have no way out
her heart turning to stone
as she'd scream and shout

So i have to take her misery
No matter how i decay
Stuck in this pissery
A withering may. 

The moon turns red
my skin implodes
my heart feels dead
upholding the nodes

Cause to protect her from the flame
I myself will burn
Cause i'm no man if i don't protect the dame
But what do i learn?

I learn i am stuck
Stuck in the cell
constantly struck
i hear no bell

No sound or sight
no hope or guiding light

But the one thing i know
is that i'm a protector
I reap what i sow
in this dystopian sector

I may try too hard
but i want to defend
in my heart there's a shard
just so she can depend

I think to myself...
What will happen when i'm gone?
Will i be missed?
Will i be appreciated?
How much time do i have left? Cause i way a ton.
Will i succeed 
or will i fail?

My bones begin to crumble
into this hellfire i stumble
maybe the time is nigh' 
to say... Goodbye. 

But i cannot, for without me
she's blind, she cannot see
She'd fall and she'd crumble
With no one to trust
then she'd stumble
before turning to dust.

Either way, i am screwed. 
If i'm forced to make such a choice
