From Broken Vessels - Orphaned Land
Unto this world I was born - innocence scorned
Oaths were broken and pain bestowed - innocence mourned
Trust betrayed, smiles were faked
Desire turned hate, faces of loved ones are long decayed
Alone in this world, alone and so cold
Shiver in rain, my story unfolds
A broken vessel, endless pieces of me
Friends are now foes, those who betray
Love's labour's lost, a true passion play
Forked tongues drip with lies
Serpents hold me down, I cannot fly
The dark within my eyes
Saint I'm not
Pure in mind and thought
Masks I wear
In this stage we share
Will we ever bare
These fears and hopes within one and all?
Cracks they show
In the mirrors of my soul
When I break
Why do they all forsake?
Is life but a mistake?
Why do they smile when I fall apart?
Go! Pick your self up,
You are the end, now the chapter is done
Cry as you might to the gods you adore
They hear you not, as they never before
