The days gone by
Obviously inspired by various nodes around here.
Innocence lost and days gone by
Wounds of the soul and of the mind
it is misery. it is emptiness.
Skull replaced by a padded cell
Chained inner demons
fight and howl
it is guilt. it is suffering.
Forgotten memories long dead
Dead ambition long forgotten
it is terror. it is frisson.
Agony well remembered
Horror never quite deceased
it is torment. it is release.
Pain still burns like firery coals
Lonely nights in the frigid rain
it is truth. it is beautiful.
