The best way to summarize this one is to say that Criminal is part one and this is the sequel in some respect.

Redemption Star
Losing my will to die in the flames.
Covered in thick ash...before the open desert I stand.
Tattered and weary. Eyes painted vermillion from the flicks of black sand.
I am flawed.
This here is the daughter of no name.
Risen from the sea. Pristine I was supposed to be.
An oasis calls for my return.
But I've been paying the sins of the Netherworld.
And you can see those scars upon my face.
This is merely a chapter in the story of the daughter with no name.
She entwined with I have existed within a haze.
Bounded to the addictions of a once pessimistic slave.
I too, harbored the shame.
Of things never meant for me to change.
And faithless I became.
He doesn't love this child.
And no one knows my name.
I bring to you my worth while the star illuminates my grave.
I bring to you my all while the star beckons me to change.
But for years I have stood in front of these mirrors.
Distorted from the miseducation within time's cataclysm.
I am imperfect.
And all I can see are the scars in my face
the blood on my wrists
the noose around my neck
the tar on my hands
the sand matting my hair
Exhaustion, come dehydration has drained the color.
I am damaged.
Wearing the chains of uncertainty and deranged
Society would have had me medicated.
So I continue to be the one caged.
Constrained no longer.
I begin to wander again
through the sand
wearing stained rags
in search of what was once my star
For he has drifted and will continue to go far.
But he caused a break in the 50 foot crypt.
Hopefully in the absence, my once altered perception will slip into the background...
I am no angel. Merely the wounded prophet's child.
And I am wandering, will wander, until again, my star is found.
