The torment of your lies tumble onto me
The torment of your lies tumble onto me
Tumble onto me like an avalance
To kill!

The day will slowly drown
Walking alone with no one endless guilt.
Forever we die, time is not heres, not near the beginning
Walking alone broken dreams
Time is at an end which is near the beginning which brings us
Further from the truth and into history's path and what we call
Hope is nothing but a selfish lie and individual suggestions

Strokes of a brush fades away
Strokes of a brush fades away
As the wind blows, as the water hits the sand
Broken memories of a time forgotten,
Some called a dieing wish or some called a dying dream, life
To kill!

The day will slowly drown
Walking alone with no none, forever we die, time is not here
Not near the beginning, walking alone broken dreams
The rain falls outside the sky which was once
Now turns black as night

Hearts broken, hearts sinking, our hearts are broken

The blood of eternity from your finger, the blame
of everyaction comes to rest upon your shoulder
With every action comes to rest on your, upon your shoulders
Life renewed everyday see'd you forgiven

    General CommentLife has no meaning. Human existance is just a blink in the fabric of time. Before, we used to think with certainty that we are indeed special, but as we advance, as a race, we have learned that we are actually insignificant. Eventually, and maybe soon, our whole species will become just a part of history. Some people may try and hold onto hope, but they are just holding onto a 'selfish lie', or an 'individual suggestion.' Overall, this is not a something the speaker of the poem wants to believe and feel, nor is he trying to be ignorant or malicious. This is just something that cannot be ignored and is so real and unavoidable. He wishes he could still have faith, and tried his hardest, but that is just something that cannot be faked.

    General CommentAlso, with this new outlook on life (opposed to religions) we can now see and begin to live with the notion that all of our actions will not met with a consequince in the after life, but yet they remain here and effect us now, only now. No more preying and hoping, only action and reaction in the now. No more worrying about living the right way in anticipation of being judged when you die. Just good and bad choices that 'rest on your shoulders' but will not be judged.
