  • deliver me oh self
    from the confines of this being
    take me to delve
    into the darkness blind but seeing

    clearly the path of past
    not to be tread anymore
    an ocean of stars so vast
    shipless voyage leaving this shore

    why do you cling?
    what holds you here
    desire is a wreteched thing
    that brings only a tear

    paid for in pain
    a needed release
    my tears fall as rain
    my heart the wretched beast

    deliver me oh self
    I am want to leave
    this place of happiness felt
    to rest eternal a final reprieve
