Paradise Lost

innocence, beneath this sorry veil i see 'you have'
plenitude, the sweetness of a new born child
it's lost deserted reverence

for my life and the stars creation
for my life it's the same rejection
lost in life, i'll blame it all on you

loss of hope, failing situation
readapt, death is life's temptation
dying slow, i'll blame it all on you

resurrect, the harsh tones of our self contempt 'recall'
fail to breathe, in sight no normal state of mind
in time the hour will fail to chime

they betray, uphold the law, accuse the future
