Haunted nights for haleyon days
Nature's way struck grief in me

Beneath the surface, stark emptiness
Whereas I thought of myself as a leader
You'd cling to your pleasant hope
While I'd ruin the obstacles into despair

In a holocaust scene memory
Decrepit body wearing transparent skin

In his shadow I'm choking

A delusion made me stronger
I sacrificed more than I had
