From fighting this holocaust
Destroying within and eating its way from the core

Time does not exist
These days are meaningless
Deep within my eyes
There is a heart that died long ago


Forgive this heart
Long stagnant with its blood
For it is here, within my suffering
That these, the altars of the soul have creaked
Suffering hour...
Suffering hour...
Suffering hour...
My darkest hour is now
