invitation au suicide lyrics – christian death

r. williams
i have etched the scrolls into my skin
the hangman’s noose, 13 lies which cross the barrierburial
there is a sin not yet commited
o, he of sleepless flight – be merciful.
i have found myself lost amongst the shards
of a world reduced to shadow
sentenced to a lifetime in this prison
well, i should have taken this omen and ran
abandoned myself to secret corners
instead i turned to face the day
treading through the storm of the horror
and decay
how could i be so blinded
cut down and so misguided?
caught in deception, in deception
o, he of splintered sight – be merciful
for i know not what i do
i walk the road that leads to an early grave
as tears stream down my rigid face
well, i should keep one eye turned towards heaven
as i drag my body through the flames
instead i turned to face the day
fighting with the demons i have made
spilled all my hope along the way
it falls out, it falls dead
shattered fragments, endless waves
o, he of sleepless nights – be merciful
i have found myself lost amongst the shards
if only i had severed ties,
ties that bind all my dreams to lies
i could have walked away from it all
i could have walked away from it all
and found that peace waits in absentia
