It was all a deception, a mental facade
That grew from predation of all believable odds
The logical mind told me to ignore
Inexplicable signs of the mind's inner war

But now it's as glass, the confusion made clear
My purpose for being was already here
In the midst of the struggle, my senses remained
Though spirit was vacant, debauched, and deranged

And now, I'm living like never before
I've no misgivings - to win I lost the war

And now I know
This heart that's beating
Was dead as stone
'Til you breathed healing

I never knew that all my vanities were lost
That they would fall to rust and ruin
But as they crumble, I now see that it was I
Who caused this ignorance of wisdom

I never knew that this would come at such a cost
Blood was the currency for freedom
So as the light of this last memory fades away
Let it remind all those who lose their way
