Beyond Salvation Pt2

from by Parallel Truth



Twilight fades as dawn draws near
Night turns to day
Crystal tears, like snowflakes, fall and melt away

Through barren streets and frozen fields
Over and on
I wander forever alone

Am I awake? Is this a dream
For the blinding light surrounds me
The salvation that I seek
Lies beyond the depths of me

Where shall I go
What shall I do
When can I stop counting

Every day and every night
Since almost but never was
When can I stop fighting?


In a lucid dream: awake
Hesitation I must forsake
To attain some peace of mind
Paralyzed. What will I find

Rotten inside, struggling to attain serenity

Shackles that bind, hope gives way to perfect symmetry

Aspirations reduced to ash
Strength leeched from my very bones
My heart breaks, quietly dying inside
Knowing that I’m forever alone

Tears through my veins
Despising myself for my failures

Consuming me, for I am beyond salvation

I scream, but no one’s there
And exercise in futility
There is no derision
The end of days is near

I scream, but no one’s there
Swallow the pain

I stand atop the peak
My kingdom far below
So tranquil in it’s perfectness

Go on, take the crown
Do not look down
Awaken to nothing


In a lucid dream awake
Hesitation I must forsake
To achieve some peace of mind
Terrified; What will I find
