I'm drowning in darkness someone shine a light on me
Fixated on the outcome of all
Death whispers denouement the end is clear to me
Coping with sorrow I splinter the last straw

It's been a long, sad day
And this will only make it worse
As devils whisper angels pray
This gift will only be a curse

So this must be my hell but I can not discern
I set sail for Charon my soul the river Styx will burn

It's been a long sad day
And this will only make it worse
As devils whisper angels pray
This gift will only be a curse

Fire in the hole and glory be to God
Disregard the soul beneath a foot of sod
Bane of my existence and crux of my dismay
Salt packed into a gaping wound day by day

I'm washed in the misery bathing the soma
I pray for your mercy to vanquish this coma

    General CommentThis song has the most beautiful electric guitar melody at the end of the song. I've never heard something so emotionally moving; using no words to convey it. I cry nearly every time I hear the last 1/3 of the song.
