Tearing away from earthen arms

Free from the grave

The ashes of fate that faintly burn

As I stand within my fate

Remind me of you

For I have lost the strength to see

As I wander the darkest depths of ruin

I cant find the will to believe

Tearing away from this false sense of reason

I'm still bound within this dream

Where the manifestations of my regrets

Keep pulling me back

But who would I be?

To die amongst the weak...

As I tear away

I am painted with crimson resolve

I am defined through adversity

The depths that I bleed

Through the endless afflictions

I strive to succeed

I will never lose my will to breathe

Without struggle, we are nothing

We have not bled enough

May scarlet life rain down from me

And prove my devotion

Afflictions cast shall ever seed

Strength in mortality

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy." ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
