Tattered and ruined
I gaze to the sky
And ask not to be forgiven
To be forgiven

At the waters edge
Where ripples churn
What human once was present
Now lies innocence lost

Never again
Be forgiven

In a vibrant flicker
At a sidelong glance
A vision of tomorrow
Or the shell known as I

Known as I

Never again
Be forgiven

At the final edge
Where silence stirs
Was a human present
Or just
A shell

Guided by lust
Grief stricken this life
Given a chance
At redemption
I must decide

As I take my
Last breath
I am born again in death
As I take my
Last step
I am born again in death
