Ravaged


 

Nestled deep inside of me
is a transformation I cannot foresee
The sun is fading now to dusk
Again it comes with such avarice
 

I pray O' Lord just set me free
For Whom the Bell Tolls is my reverie
I want to disappear from here
To swallow myself and all my fears

I hug myself into a ball
And close my eyes to see nothing at all
I'm paralyzed with ferocious doom
My mind is making an inimical call

Stop This! Stop This!
Stop this now
I'm being devoured again
I'm weeping aloud

The blackness comes, it beckons for me
I'm so far away, Deep into that sea
I cannot see the sunlight now
Its gone wondering behind raven clouds
