Evanescence

I saw the evidence, you were always there,
But why should you care,
I felt it come to me, the requiem heard,
Yet still there's no word,

I hear the silent screams, reviving the pain,
Leaving this truth faint,
I see the darkened light, staring in my eyes,
Unleashing our lies,

I watch the dry tears fall, the burden they have,
Too grieved to be sad,
I felt the heartless crack, the words sinking through,
Echoes bounce off you,

So take back my reason, act by your own wish,
This apocalypse,
Throw away destiny, walk with fate instead,
Leave your promise dead.
