Woe quenches me with regret and sadness
Sick of the quarrels
You scorched me in Your wrath
War has just begun
Sick of the lies…their hope dries…
Devouring us alive like fire,
Spurting out from beneath us…
I can hear their cries
As I smell their fresh flesh crackling in the fire
I pick up my pace…RUN RUN away from the danger ahead of us
Our feet are dragging on the floor
No one can save us anymore…
Don’t hunt down my desires – I’m begging you for mercy!
You don’t understand
Where my heart naturally lands
LET GO OF MY HAND…
They’re dripping with sticky sweat
You make me awfully upset
You wanna bet?
Oh, our minds do pile up with worries and debts!
Our minds do pile up with past grief and regrets!
RUN RUN away from the living hell!
You ran away as I begin to fall away into the darkness
The thought of you hovers around my brain
Like a fly obsessed with a light bulb – am I really sane?
My mind spins round and round…without any sound…
I’m lost in my own maze…I kneel on the ground
And pray for forgiveness…
Shed radiance in my future dreams!
You swept away my sorrow
I must wait until tomorrow
I wish for that feeling of accomplishment
Of surviving the sleepless nights
I long for an adventure of excitement
My thoughts are like floating kites,
Drifting away into the sky…the black, gloomy sky…
Fighting relentlessly in my mind…
I’m trying to pray for hope in mind…
But, I feel that I’m rather…blind.
