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.

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 of 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 plains 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.

Canonised, a life that fades 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 fear 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.
