A Shadow of Destiny

It's about someone who has been promised a high and powerful path in life, but has found that life seldom fails to disappoint

What have I become

A faint shadow of my destiny

A wasted life

The grace of god forever eludes me

Prophesies cut at me, colder than knives

 

Where's the truth

Nothing is as it seems

Something darker approaches

No drink or whiskey shot can cure me

 

What have I done?

I've soaked my future in disgrace

A squandered destiny

The grace of god forever punishes me

Images race through my brain

A life I hope to have delayed

 

Where's the truth

Nothing is as it seems

Something darker approaches

No drink or whiskey shot can cure me

 

Maybe someday I'll be king

I'll find the answer to everything

But like dreams fading faster than they arrive

I'll lose it all again

Along with my urge to survive

 

Where's the truth

Nothing is as it seems

Something darker approaches

No drink or whiskey shot can cure me

The End
