Heart of the Dying

By Jaken Steele

Ever since you left me
I've sat alone with mental razors
Slicing deep into my heart
Leaving scars on my soul
Bleeding acid and crying blood
Blaming it all on myself
Retribution for a tortured soul
Condemned to eternal damnation
Kneeling at the dark altar
In the temple of love
Grabbing at a useless dream
I'll go on alone forever
Frozen from the cold
Burning from the fire
The battle rages on inside
No matter who wins
I'll always be the loser
Retribution for a tortured soul
Condemnation for the damned
Is hearing the heart of the dying
