i have seen what other live to see

but only view in the most vivid dreams

i have felt what it must be like, being free

if only for a second, before time caught up

and after a taste of what I'd for many lives craved

i was pulled back into the world I'd momentarily escaped

and regretfully wished my prodigal soul I'd saved

so i could live again, dream again, and die a man

but lost in the deception of the devils trill

i let my indulgent heart make the trade

now, i can't even dream for sleep eludes me still

and my life will pass me by, in insomnia

Regret can be a pretty dark thing. don't we all feel like giving in to our desires at one point?
