There is a mist in my mind, a terror waits for the quiet times
The reason why I'm bent on trying
I'm not giving into you, trial run
it takes support to be given so
Give me faith to recreate

My reason is thrown out
You're clueless and burned down, for trying hard enough
My faith has failed us

Good gifts of plenty
Good gift so play

You're broken down and over burden
Torn up and overturning
Attempts to make amends but, I'm through with your delusions

Remaking something new
Useless and beautiful

You're giving me redemption, new worries
A massive made mistake
Close your eyes and drink the poison
Wave of pride
My fists are scared and broken
Break burden and wrap the wounds within gasoline
Light the match and set the flame

You're broken and seared in
this opus is haunted
I'm tired of losing you
It's why I can't get through

Good gifts of plenty

Unwavering in compliance
Temptation is tearing you
Un-wave this cause of resonance
Temple of truth I honor you
