The Departure

Your road’s led you
Through this life alone
The struggles you’ve known
To find your place
Over and over
Damned to fail
Wasting away on the lies
They sold your soul

A fallen existence
Adrift in irrelevance
The wrongs you've tried to fix
You don’t belong

Their empty promises
Have played you to their own ends
Misused and thrown aside

But now that you’ve found
Your purpose here
We've helped you to break
Your ties to them
You’ve seen what’s behind
This vale of woes
And know that your world
Isn’t of this wanton land

So don’t be afraid to face this
It’s time for the pain to finally end
Surrender your spirit to The Gift
It’s only in death that you’ll find
The perfect love

The silent calm, so dear
Allays your final fears
The solace you’ve longed to find
For far too long

Your thoughts return to when
You’d play with your childhood friends
Alive in the summer sun
~You shut them out

Your soul lies
Beyond this
Your soul lies
Beyond this

Don't waver now
Such doubts are just a test

Your sacrifice
Will make sense
Of all this


In fire reborn
All whys shall be known
No longer in sin
All wonder resolved

Your light in this darkness
Your life for this love
