Light

Deep in the void
Where I tremble unseen
Darkness eats the light

Strength radiates
From the core of my soul
Blindness turns to sight

Nothing to fear
But the evil within
Blackness under white

Evil explodes
Grace from high intervenes
Brightness conquers fright

Darkness

I lost myself within the drink
But pushed my way back from the brink
Of despair
Of I don't care
From someplace dark to somewhere

She gave me reason to hope
Strength to loosen the rope
Of despair
Of I don't care
From someplace dark to somewhere

Still hear the rumble of the train
But I'm unshackled from the chain
Of despair
Of I don't care
From someplace dark to somewhere


I found the light
In the pitch black
Now I'm never going back
To despair
To I don't care
To someplace dark from somewhere

Hiatus

Landscape of imagination
Turned to wasteland
As I slept
And the change of seasons
Sapped my strength
Now shortened days grow in length
Giving rise to reasons
To awake
Green shoots from the rusty sand
Creation
