The poem is below.



Chains around me 
chains drugged deep 
into my soul of long ago
chains upon my heart 
on my body 
I wanna brake free 
but I am too weak 
I am lost in darken dreams,

I battled the fight 
to do what is right 
But Dark Angel don't play 
that kinda hand 
when it comes to his commands ,

Head down his voice calls out
don't look me in my eyes
let your tears fall tonight
No one can save you from me
this anyone can see ,

Let your glory fade into your pains
let your rain bleed out into the sea
let your heart weep 
to what it is you can no longer see
I take the light away from your eyes,

Dark Angel stands around
on wet grounds 
telling the lost souls to cry out
on high tonight 
dance around for thee 
but you will never be set free from me ,

Captive like slaves 
on hands and knees 
rages are upon the bruised skin
cage up like birds 
crimes come before the eyes that see
cries come down like rain ,

singe your name on this line
lose your faith
to what it is you once known 
that when I stood up
to take a stand
I cried out and said ,

I will not do as you command 
that's when he broken my wings
and cast me into the sea
grave me another painful dream
into the mouth of Hell .
