I recall prayers from this bed, those left unsaid, those truly mean't with every breath
as I continue to lay here, still in this bed
Not one of them ever answered..
is there anyone else I could maybe, talk to instead...
My hopes, along with all my dreams
forced to demoralise, these will never be
So why Do I continue, to stay?
once again with my faith the option is simple, only pray
Not one friend listened to my cries, Lord come for me, take me away
I am only human, And yes, I have made my mistakes
Nothing in this world could have passed, to prove I told the truth
I obeyed every task you set, all of them proven impossible for any person
I'm weak no more, " I ask ye' oh Lord", have I not endured equal to that of my 'shame'
forever to wander earth, lost and betrayed, will I ever again see mankind the same
Oh Lord desperate for guidance, and reassurance I'm at an all time critical low..
will I ever again trust in humans working with me, in creating a new home, no!
I did everything humanly possible to achieve your tasks, You are clearly delusional
now the answer's little late, I too can see, and the only reasonable conclusion is
"I AM, ETERNALLY DAMNED"
