Resonance of emptiness
Beneath these chains
Aching for release
Broken by life
Silently stalking your psyche
You see things in this twisted light
Which represents society
Which effects the very worst of me
With my spirit up and my mind at ease
An unease came about me
Ending words in a flawed clinche'
Bouncing across dreams
Thinking my breathing would cease
This indistinct mask that cannot conceal
Endless weaving from the wheel
Everything weighs on me
To a life lived in secrecy
I crawl upon
The burning hells of my memories...
