Dark Descent (C.o.a.B.S)

Pain cuts deep into my soul
bursts the heart which was so full
of the endless troubles, worries and burdens
I take in life, reluctantly and sullen

For one who holds his head up high
is now made to break down and cry
A radiant sun once bright and shining
to be smothered by dark clouds with no silver lining

To ever be slowly losing touch
Be plagued by Death, yet not quite such
To hang between Life and Death
For all my joy and glory have left

To be stripped of all I love and care
Descending to Hell and living nightmare
My pride and achievements now long gone
Finding respite only in haunting song

One who was self-assured and strong
How could I have been so wrong?
Look at me, at what I've done
Look at what I have become

A mere shadow, spectre of my past
A fragment of what could never last
My envy and pride led to insurmountable cost
A never-ceasing reminder of what I've lost

I hit rock bottom and begin to burrow
Leaving a trail of pain and sorrow
Trying to forget who I really am
The Truth that I am one of the Damned.

Damned to forever walk this earth
Damned to never know joy and mirth
Damned to live but never see
What it is Life holds for me

Lost in a endless, winding maze
with the blows of Truth leaving me in a daze
A Mist of Deception blinds my eyes
Leaving me helpless to do anything but sigh...

For something still flickers, yet to be seen
But remains a mystery, a forgotten dream........
