Talk of recreation
Opening the chamber door
Entertain the veil
Of impossibility
And bitter consequence

Beneath this pallid face of yore
Shattered fragments take their hold
And I fade away

Drained of strength I take my leave
The essence still remains
Haunted by what might have been
Sacrifice in vain
With this departure, I bid farewell

Pretend that this is all a dream
Wide awake, I can't avert my gaze
When reason fails, fleeting innocence
Draws it's final breath

Drained of strength I take my leave
The essence still remains
Haunted by what might have been
Sacrifice in vain
With this departure, I bid farewell

Forsaken with the darkness
Calling out salvation
Losing the will to fight temptation
This moment must move on
but the pain foes on and on

Someday I will break these chains...

Drained of strength I take my leave
The essence still remains
Haunted by what might have been
Sacrifice in vain
With this departure, I bid farewell
