A Holier Day Will Dawn

Don’t follow the deceitful
shadow of the unseen
nor stare at the dark
reflection of the unknown

It will storm up the spirit of chaos
awakening your worst demons
creating an unnatural balance
with forms of your soul’s lost graces

It will take advantage of your faults
break you with every remorse
blinding you from the truth of redemption
leading you to insanity
without any hope of inner peace
and promising salvation

Oppressing you in immense pain
Possessing your broken soul
Tormenting you to death

But don’t you dare stop praying
Have divine faith
That you will not bleed out
All through the devil’s torture

Believe that a holier day will dawn
Believe that peace will arise again

Slaves to Society

You stole our hopes
corrupted our minds
and killed our dreams

Now we are a plague
to the same society
that enslaved us

All our efforts at
seeking freedom is
being tagged a crime

But maybe a little
breaking of your laws
and aborminating sins
is what it will take
to feel alive, again

Sorry

Can’t change the past
All the wrongs I did
Every disappointment
The lies I created
and unfulfilled promises

Baby, I let you down
Didn’t deserve all that
The sleepless nights
and endless cries
Wasn’t there for you

I never deserved you
Didn’t appreciate you
Took your love for granted
and you left me wasted
Chocking with remorse

I’m ashamed of facing you
I got no more excuses
To back up my faults
But don’t leave like this
Forgive me, I am sorry!
