If it's a soul, why is it dark?

If it's a smile, why does it hurt?

If it was light, why you can't see?

If it was water, why do you bleed?

 

Unending why, infinite search

Unforgiveness, impurity, melancholy and grudge

The cloud seemed to cover the sun

Like those wounds, covering your inner glow

 

Why not remove the pain? Why not release the chain?

Return to your home and receive the grace

When you feel like there's more to give

Tear the rotting skin and bare the beauty within.
