    the days don't even wake no more...
    I have peeled back the horizon to find
    the sun...
    only to discover a ransom note left by
    tears that the sun will
    be destroyed unless I
    destroy my life...

    why should those that exist in my world
    share my pain / the dark days of
    no tomorrows /
    because I can not cease
    to frown


    the days don't even wake no more
    but if I dive into the six feet deep
    sleep of another life
    maybe I can smile again maybe
    then / the world can be spared my
    suffering

    God if it is to be! I am willing and waiting!

    take me somewhere into your arms
    so I can feel the graces of your touch
    and cry into the urns of happiness
    so the chime of hard times past
    can urge me to dance beneath
    the horizon

    free the sun and resuscitate
    new days into those that remain living.
