Abandoned To Ruin

It's about how, when people go through horrifying experiences, question their beliefs, ask why it's happened to them, and find themselves turning their backs on their old lives

I was left broken, bloodied on the pavement

Pride left to ruin, somehow my soul was still alive

Flesh and blood left to disdain 

My hopes left to the vultures

What remains left to the wolves

 

Friends long gone, the distant wail of sirens gathering volume

I don't even have the energy left to condemn

Only to weep and beg for death

 

No angels to save me

No friends to guide me or console

A world we never bear to acknowledge

Until it claws it's way through our soul

 

The steady beep and sterile walls

It's amazing how far even gods can fall

Barely enough life left in my veins

My courage ready to be devoured alive

My heart ready for the lions

 

Friends long ago, the distant wail of sirens gathering volume

I barely have the strength to whisper for hope

Only the strength to beg for death

 

No angels left to save me

No friends to guide me or console

A life we could never dream to live and keep

Until fate turns it's wheel cruelly 

Until fate brings our punishment to bear

 

Logic departs, karma's throat slit and there's blood on the floor

Forgive me brothers but I refuse to acknowledge God

Logic whimpers goodbye, salvation long ago closed the door

Don't dare to look at me and say sorry

The End
