Symphony of the Devil

Written by: Robert Long Mellott

Symphony of the Devil
(and yes I do play with fire 
on a number of levels... hehehe)


Drums of despair
Beating my will...
My Surrendered soul
Bleeding unrepaired

Horns of dissention
Devouring their fill…
My Surrendered soul
Painful comprehension

Strings of consternation
Branding their way
My Surrendered soul
Eroded determination

Cymbals of disgrace
Drowning my day
My Surrendered soul
Gone without a trace

Percussions of regret
Following the trail
My Surrendered soul
Tangled in a net

Bands of madness
Describing my tale
My Surrendered soul
Entangling distress

Segues of entreat
Swallowing my pain
Surrendered my soul
Painless retreat.
