rise from the dark radiate the sky the sun of my world i have tripped and fallen derailed my train of thoughts all my memories have been scattered but what’s the point of recovery i have lost everything i held close to me and worst of all i can’t even breathe in fact i solidified my individuality by redefining your interest in me your first foot steps into my life was that of death and nothing more but without clarity i will always be your devolving spore out of this shady origin i have waken to this world not forgetting that these mysteries of her are so hollow now void my subtleties i've grown so attached to something i don't even know yet i cannot cease this belligerence i fear these thoughts of her are fading she knows she’s always got me chasing her rise from the dark radiate the sky recall all my dreams the lynx and lion bow at your feet you impede on my true beliefs it is you who mustn’t succeed analyze my sketches and see the lines i hate my designs are faceless and resemble the changes to my self-indulged fate and isn’t this what you want to be with those you adore to live this life of fantasy or did you expect even more yet my eyes are twisted spinning and searching i cannot see that you are the best part of me i fear these thoughts of her are fading always on my mind she’s always got me chasing fire burning fire chars the sketches one chance i should have had to understand the nightmares of the lynx and lion pump me full of fear and my wishes turn to ash and disappear i am breaking my devotion this curse has caged fear of futures now watch how i can break from these chains and set myself free far from the negligence that blisters your hands it was you that nailed the spikes in my integrity if that were not my disease nor my burden i’d feel sympathy but this has gone too far and now your womb must bleed i close my eyes to obstruct the light that shines embrace the dawning sky amidst the withered hopes a love was born to be sun of the world
