Death of an Innocent

Light came shining through
The broken trees around me
Before so many were awake
While my music played

I had spent the months before
Fighting war after pointless war
Inside my head and with another soul
I had no idea where the future would go

Then a cold breeze rolled in through my window
Chilled my fingers, then my body then the rest of my soul
I let my voice echo across the expanse, ever wide
Praying this would be the year that I died

Light came shining through
The heavy snowflakes across the street
I kept my hands held high
I kissed the night goodbye

I spent the rest alone
Shibuya 104 was my home
I blinked and the year had passed
I pulled my twisted self out of the blast

I embraced the cold breeze coming through my window
Chilled my fingers, then my body then the rest of my soul
And I kept on shouting to whomever could hear
"What will I find at the end of this year?"

Light came shining through
The cloudless blue sky above me
The ground was too far to see
On this mountain high above the trees

I had come so far
Burning from the morning star
The heated air forced it all to bend
I wished those days would never end

And now a cold breeze rolls in through my window
Chills my fingers, then my body then the rest of my soul
And even to this day, I'll shout as loud as I can
Saying "Did those days serve to make me a man?"
