Laughter fills the air
While I’m wondering in the depths of my mind
Thinking of yesterday, dreaming of tomorrow
Journey rose-colored
Path filled with venomous thorns
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness
As I place it on your finger
I commit my heart and soul to you
False promises, artificial smiles, vow of deceit
It can’t continue like this no more

Can this impurity be washed away?
Contaminated by the self-conceit
Decayed and frozen from the inside
This is my lament to you

Sky is weeping for your sins
Acid rain burns the soil beneath my feet
To an unstable surface
Our union has fallen
Severed from its roots
Confronting the paradox
Ease the pain or be bitter till the end of time
No more lying or uncovered statements
This is the beginning of new era

This bitterness of mine
Will silence the agonizing voices in my head
Thinking of remedy
Compounding the mixture
Solution see-trough
A medley of your lies
Perfect chance to get things even
Or am I wrong?
For years our travel was so serene
Now we are million miles away
Under the beams of moonlight
My hatred is yet to come undone
These things you have done to me
Things you promised to cherish
Are so worthless now
So I don’t really care

Wrath of the betrayed is evil and menace
It will crush the wings of the deceiver
Lost in oblivion
Fear not to seek
Searching signs which cannot be reached

Confusion and nausea
Venom of deadly nightshade
Under the poisoned sky
I lay down here to rest

To a sacred ground
I bury my past behind
This pain is all too real
Was it really me?

Burden is no longer here to be carried
Murder a choice of a desperate man
