I was born amidst the purple waterfalls.
Dead to the world. Alive for the journey.
a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
I witnessed the beauty of the beast.
Where have all the feelings gone?

Gone back in time to bless the child
Come bless the child one more time
How can I ever feel again?

As I drank from a cup which was counting my time
To drink it is to follow the left hand path
Where have all the feelings gone?
to love as I loved you?
soon to be freed from care, from human pain.
Time pays us but with earth & dust
Remember, my child:
hope is only an illusion
nothing but a name...
The Child bless thee
