Retribution

Why must I lie hear now,
Crying in the dark?
I let my life burn down
The bite was worse than the bark
My pain seems endless now
I’m drowning in self-hate
Now all thoughts fade to black
I guess it is too late

Now as my sentence draws near
Breaking glass is all I hear
The stealing and the lies
The betrayed love’s cries

I guess I’m guilty now
I’ve no innocence
Now as the sky falls down
It’s time to pay penance
The Judge and Jury they
Are all in my head
Now I am numb to all
My feelings seem all dead

When will this end?
I’m a failure no one likes me I have no worth
When will this end?
All I ever do is hurt I am the scum of the Earth
When will this end?
I’m lower than shit I should curse my birth
When will this end?
Will it ever end?

I’m scraping bottom now
I’ve no where else to go
I’ve got to pull myself
Back up that swinging chain
It’s time to get myself
To break through all that pain
I guess I’m doing better now
But I still feel the same

Now as my sentence draws near
Breaking glass is all I hear
The stealing and the lies
The betrayed love’s cries

Light all around me now
I feel so nice and warm
I’m stepping off the boat
I’ve made it through the storm
I’m in a better space
I’m working through my pain
No need to close my case
I’ve gotten past the shame

Now there’s no judgment to fear
No screaming voices to hear
No happiness to chase
I am not far from grace
