Your life has been abandoned and un-lived,
And I alone have escaped to tell you.
I have waited for the light,
Yet days of affliction confront me,
I feel locked inside this night,
And I only ask to be free,
I do all I can,
In the small world of a man.
I call upon a prayer,
Yet wisdom remains unspoken,
And I have stood there and I have seen,
Where the teeth of the young lions are broken, Why did I not die at birth,
What are these rebuilt ruins worth.
I question all faith and life itself,
And the heavens radiate indifference,
I endure plagues and suffering,
Instructed with expert nonsense,
A simple life eclipsed by the sublime,
Are we guilty of some cosmic crime.
Please deliver me from the meaningless meaning, A day full of wanting and a night full of dreaming, Don't leave me to wander thru wonder-less worlds, Only finding fools gold and lusterless pearls,
And if fate is the warden of desire,
Then it's just trying to trick the truth out of a liar,
All I want is to really learn how to be,
Oh god why has thou forsaken me.
