I screamed into the night
But truly, truly, I have nothing!
The darkness weighs down on me
I have not the strength to stand
Without someone to hold my hand
I ache for something more
I can feel the desperate need
Your voice is never quiet
You never speak to me in calming tones
You scream so I will hear you
Is pain to be forever?
What is to be must always be
The pain is no account
The lights may dim from many eyes
Then there can be no disguise
And even through the eerie cries
Of the brutal death of love
As final breaths are ripped from weakened lungs
Fire rips through the agony
You scream and let me know
Fire kindled in the eyes
To burn the cries that echo in the dark
The sky is red and flames lick the sky
Paint the picture
Show the world!
But then I'd die inside
This fragile orchid nearly scorched
Cannot face the bitter winds
You can't go on without a breath!
You fool! You can't beat death!
