Hell awaits me ahead, and also chases from behind
Memories of my past trail behind like a cloud of smoke
Choking out any light from those I pass
I lay here in my bed, dark thoughts echoing through my mind
Surely everyone can see my life is only a joke
Why do I even try? I smile, alas.....
My life is wasted on frivolity and gluttony
And I see nothing but emptiness and cold pageantry
Welcome is the dark embrace of the past
Cold and sharp, it encroaches on my very soul
Guiding me down the path to my eventual
Hatred of myself and all I've come to know
Only now I see, I was part of the show
My own designs keeping me in tow
And my emotions ruling from the shadows
I never knew the darkness in my own heart
Was guiding me to my demise from the start
