Perdition

I woke up early this morning.
The clock struck an hour that sunk the day.
All these skulls are adorning
My lifeless cage.

A backwords glance out the window.
Saw a songbird. Sung a demonic tune.
Tossing me into black throes.
But what else is new?

Barely just begun.
(Slave to this routine).
Mind's been overrun.

Hey! This existence's starting to scrape away.
I can't be one amongst the crowd, to my dismay.
Shovel all your sins into this putrescent grave.
All the while, I'll smile as it crumbles down.
Fate resounds.
And I'm trapped in a living hell.

I walked a path paved with fire.
Couldn't breathe beyond the toxicity.
All the dreams I aspire
Are buried deep beneath.

Visions painted with a blood brush.
The horizon's looking like shattered glass.
Calm the screams with a broken hush.
To late to try to pass.

Blotted out the sun.
(Slave to this routine).
Now coming undone.

Hey! This existence's starting to scrape away.
I can't be one amongst the crowd, to my dismay.
Shovel all your sins into this putrescent grave.
All the while, I'll smile as it crumbles down.
Fate resounds.
And I'm locked in this cage.
Nothing to pray.
Rewind the day.
Death calls my name, and I'm trapped in a living hell.

Grabbin' at the soul, fingers so cold.
Like a black hole.
They will never let me go.

It's burning so deep, burning me whole.
Stop the heartbeat.
When's it gonna take its toll?

Thoughts that are contrite.
Whatever's wrong is right.
Melt away the skin,
And char all my insides.

What's it gonna take
To make this escape?
Die before I wake.
Know the light will never show.

Now you should know.
Already too late.
I'm about to break.
Spiral down, avarice awaits.

Trapped beneath the stone.
Living in hell alone.
Nothing left to do
As darkness pushes through.

This is all for knell.
From the light, I fell.
This is all for knell.
Trapped in living hell.

This is all for knell.
(Evil surrounds).
From the light, I fell.
(Don't try to escape).
This is all for knell.
(Evil surrounds).
Trapped in living hell.
(Don't try to escape).

This is all for knell.
Stuck in living hell.
