I walked down the paths of sorrows~~
A bleaker road i could not have chose~
A cobbled stone lane where nearby a Rose Garden once lingered~
Along with The Elusive Rose*...
I ask myself over and over again~~
Why i lingered at all??
Beguiled by what i believed could rescue me~
Knocking me from the zenith-to the nadir, i fall...
Where o' where can i turn now that i know?
With no silver lining in view~
Only a Royal Masquerade complete with-
In a Castle of explosive blood red hues...
Is there any salvation dear Lord?
I have confessed my lifes sin and you did forgive~~
But the world is so self rightous and indignant now~
Will i be tortured as long as i live?
You know that i carry ex-tra love 'round in my pockets~~
That i threw out the hate long ago into Hell~
But for some un-fathomnable reason-obscure~
There are un-named legions ~who do not wish me well...
They'd have my head upon a silver platter~~
Serve me up for an early gourmet meal~
Get filled to the full of their own hedonistic greed~
My heart and soul~ they contine to try to steal...
