All I Ever Desired

There’s a light in the sky
I avoid sleeping without understanding why
When the moon’s full I cry
It has been such a long time since I said goodbye

Howling over this corpse
Clutching the rod in my hand I attempt to force
My mind into the horse
I have beaten it dead knowing full well it’s yours

Still I feel incomplete
This persistent vision refuses to retreat
It is guiding my feet
Towards self destruction, why must I walk this street?

I have done nothing wrong
I have made every effort to become strong
But this path is so long
I paused to rest and fell down, I can’t carry on

My love, promise you’re near
I’m sinking into the ground to be gnawed by fear
There is so much pain here
A feast for my demons to last a thousand years

Every torturous bite
Loosens a piece of the wall I have built so high
There’s a flood to the sky
Waiting to drown me the moment my vigil dies

Moon reflects in the lake
I don’t know how much more of this grief I can take
When the dam finally breaks
I’m afraid my entire life will be washed away

I become slowly mired
A moment of rest is all I ever desired
I am always so tired
A moment of rest is all I ever desired
