Deliver me

From the darkest abyss
From the depths of eternal rest
Grasping at the threads of sanity
Only to watch them slip through my hands

I see the light
I see the end
I see a frail hope
Crushed by the weight of the world

I see the light
I see the end
I see a frail hope
Crushed by the weight of the world

Crushed by the weight of the world
My will is broken
My will is broken

Sinking, always sinking
The sands of time, forever slipping
Clawing at the emptiness
But a ghost I reach towards the end

Lost in darkness, lost in time
Losing a grip on my fucking mind
Ignorance is an easy friend
But in the end it takes everything

Fear, it finds me and it binds me
Illuminate the planes of consciousness
Fear, it finds me and it binds me
But I'm lost

Guilt draws me down like a stone
It chokes my throat and gnaws my bones
Regret breeds a heavy heart
Reality, torn in two
Torn in two
Torn in two

Canonised
Canonised
A life that fades
A life that fades before
Before my eyes

Canonised
A life that fades before
Before my eyes
Ever faithful friend
Sorrow, sets its teeth

Canonised
A life that fades before
Before my eyes
Ever faithful friend
Sorrow, sets its teeth

Eaten alive
But I will survive
I survive

Fury, deliver me

How can you defeat what you can't kill?
(Deliver me)
I see the feat that twists inside
(Deliver me)
I watch the shadows fill with doubt
(Deliver me)

Fury, deliver me

    General CommentClearly about depression

    "From the darkest abyss"
    "My will is broken"
    "Sinking always sinking"
    " guilt draws me down like a stone"
    " regret breeds a heavy heart"
    "How can you defeat what you can't kill"

    How many references you guys need??

    General CommentMy take on these lyrics are possibly that he is being confronted with the idea of inevitable death, and no matter what it's going to happen. You can be ignorant of that fact, but it's going to happen.

    MemoryThe main words in these lyrics are "Fury, Deliver me."
    He is ready to make his return, fueled by anger.
    He is now transformed.
