Chains Of Solitude

Don’t be fooled by your wanton desires,
For I have bathed in your funeral pyres,
Once I was not but a young man,
Memories lost to the shifting sands,
Of time! Of Time!!!
Take my hand and follow,
To the caverns below,
Beneath the hollow shell,
The river of death must flow.

Rivers of twilight, Dance through my mind,
Denied man’s gift, I’m left behind,
Tortured by loneliness, driven insane,
No chance that I’ll have peace again.

Bargain struck the deal has been made,
Price is set to live beyond the grave,
Is it worth it to gain immortality,
Life without death, man’s greatest fallacy,

Always seek to live beyond your means,
Was your life not as good as it seemed?

You will dwell in the hell that you built,
Forced to live with your fears and your guilt,
Watch your loved ones wither and die,
Taken to heaven to be buried,
In the sky! In The Sky!!!

Take my hand and follow,
To the caverns below,
Beneath the hollow shell,
The river of death must flow.

Rivers of twilight, Dance through my mind,
Denied man’s gift, I’m left behind,
Tortured by loneliness, driven insane,
No chance that I’ll have peace again.
