TAINTED HOPE


TAINTED HOPE

THIS LIFE HALF-LIVED

HALF FILLED

NOW FRIGHTENED

BY THE REALITY

OF THE END

THE END IS FINALLY COMING

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMED

ILLNESS TOOK SO MUCH

DEATH IS APPARENT

TO EVERYONE

WE ALL GO

SOMEDAY

I JUST KNOW HOW

DON'T KNOW WHEN

AND PRAY IT WILL BE MANY

YEARS FROM NOW

MY SOUL CRIES OUT

FOR SOME COMFORT

NO LIGHT IN THIS DARKNESS

OBSESSED WITH FINDING LOVE

LOST TO THE FORGOTTEN

TIDES OF TIME

AND SPACE

THERE IS A TIME AND PLACE

FOR EVERYTHING

A SEASON FOR ALL

IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS

SALVATION LIES ONLY IN

THIS HEART

TO ESCAPE FATE AND RUN IN

DENIAL

YET THEY SEE ONLY WHAT

THEY WANT TO SEE

IN THE WIND WE ARE

BUT ASHES TO ASHES

DUST TO DUST

WE ARE BORN THEN WE DIE

TO KNOW LOVE IS ALL I WISH

BEFORE IT COMES MY DEAR

I WANT TO KNOW YOUR LOVE

IT LIVES IN MY VEINS

THE PLAGUE TO WIPE

THE PARTS OF THE WORLD

ALL AWAY

SHE WILL BE LEFT ALONE

MY IMMORTALITY IS

MY ONLY MARK IN HER

AND YET THE HANDS SAY

THERE IS A CHANCE

TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE

OH MY GOD

IS IT YOU IS IT REALLY YOU

I DO NOT ENVY

I JUST LOVE YOU

THE CHALLENGES TO SURVIVE

NOR MY OWN DESTINY

RIPPED OUT FROM UNDER ME

IT WAS BY THE LOVE

I HAVE SEEKED

MY WHOLE LIFE TO FIND

AND OH MY GOD

IS THIS MY FINAL

DESTINATION

IS THIS MY FINAL

PUNSHMENT TO LOSE

MY DESTINY AGAIN

FATE IS WHAT IT IS

IT CAN'T BE SAID

IT CAN'T BE UNDONE

I KNOW IT IS SO CLOSE

I CAN TASTE IT

AND YET SO FAR FAR AWAY

NEVER IN MY HANDS

NEVER IN MY ARMS

OH PLEASE

ALL LOST

ALL RUINED

NOTHING MEANS A THING

WHEN THERE IS NO HOPE

AND YOU WERE THAT HOPE

THAT THIN LINE OF SANITY

TO WHAT LAYS AHEAD

I CAN'T SAY

WILL I BE ALONE

TO RUN AWAY

PLEASE LET ME IN

IT IS THE DAY WE HAVE

IT IS THE NIGHT WE LIVE

COME AND GIVE

AND I GIVE AND GIVE AND GIVE

TO YOU ALL THAT WE

HAVE BEEN MEANT TO BE

WHAT EVERYONE

HAS NO CLUE ABOUT

FEEL OH I FEEL ALIVE AGAIN

SOMETIME IN THIS LIFE

THE CYCLE THAT IS INEVITABLE

IT MAY COME TOMORROW

IT MAY COME TODAY

YET STILL MAYBE A FEW YEARS

DOWN THE LINE

BUT I KNOW I AM GETTING CLOSER

TO FIND THAT FINE LINE

CROSSED AND

THEY SET IT IN STONE

SO NOW IT COMES

TO PASS

I FEEL IT

NONE THE LESS

WHAT IS THERE TO SAY

TAKING THAT LEAP

OH I RISKED EVERYTHING

FOR YOU

FOR WHAT I THOUGHT WAS ONE

PATH OF DREAMS

COMING TRUE

WHERE IT LIES IS ALL MAKING

ME WONDER

BUT I FEEL IT IS CLOSE

SO CLOSE

IN ALL THE ENTERTAINING LIES

TOLD SOMEWHERE

THE TRUTH IS THERE

AND I WILL FIND

AT LEAST FOR NOW

I AM ALIVE SO ALIVE

I FEEL IT COMING

I FOUND YOU

SO IT IS ON THE EDGE

COMING AROUND

THAT BEND

AND INTO THE LONG

WINDING ROAD

TO THE EMPTYINESS

OF NO ONE

ELSE ON THE ROAD

JUST MY HEADLIGHTS

AND THE TREES.
