betrayal / forgiveness lyrics – apocalyptica

all that i ever wanted
to understand my nightmares
possessed by my fears
betrayed by my pride
alone i wandered in the deepest dark
seeking comfort from the vanity
each time i escaped the real
my soul died, died a bit more
confronting the evil within
praying for my angel to appear
agonized whisper into the emptiness
begging for salvation – salvation for this cursed mind
words without meaning
touch without feeling
i do not recognize my own face
eyes that were once shining
now extinguished
left only a silent cold
sound of a tear falling down
in the desperate hour of loneliness
this shattered heart reaching
for it’s relief – the relief it cannot find
glance without affection
kiss without sensitivity
promise without comprehension
love without hope
i do not remember my own tale
betrayed by my anger
betrayed by my delusions
betrayed by my l*st
(i wish)
strength – to be released from my demons
(i desire)
wisdom – to forgive the past
to forgive me
