lyrics

Raise my voice to speak but there’s no one here
Seems I’ve been in exile for a hundred years
It’s a purgatory for the infidels whose minds are never made up

Thoughts turn to dust and let me be
If you don’t go now we’ll be stuck right here
In the quicksand of memories that don’t add up
Rather they pull me down

I said forever that was yesterday come what may
Our failed endeavor turned my sky to gray, obscured the day

This is no temporary convalescence, no ordinary acquiescence
I’m on a mission this is my condition: resistance

Judgments of mine, when will you rest
The sun outside shines the path ahead
Or must you always lead me to resist and straighten my spine again

Don’t say forever what was yesterday is gone today
This failed endeavor turned my sky to gray, obscured the day

This is no temporary….

Now I know what you’re thinking you were laughing as I went the other way
You best think twice, you rolled the dice for me
Best pay attention to the karmic balance, there’s a statement outstanding and a bill to pay
You best think twice, you rolled the dice for me

Am I who I was raised to be
Are you who you were meant to be
Will we meet again in the inferno’s ninth circle
In the inferno’s ninth circle
