Ballad of Anguish


Anguish fills my heart
I sing my song
It's a song sorrow
When tears my wine become and
Turmoil upon my table of dine served

My soul knows no joy any longer
And my whole being dance in mourn
To that rhythmn of pains and heartbreak
Echoed into the drums of my ears
Like the ghostly call to the Spirit world.

It's all gone...
The joy I fought for,
The happiness I wept for-

Lo me now!
In a cauldron of penury I deep
Swimming in the ocean of endless disgust
As life has become but a furtile run for me
That upon my heels I seek refuge under the shade of death.

It's no fracas
But a song of loneliness
The cry of an abandoned lover
The tears of a deserted fascination
the fantasies all gone
And the joyous ecstacy, a rain of hail.

Terror in laughter
Panic with disastrous wink
All upon my ageing face
Washing my face in a bath of tears.

T's my song of sorrow
A ballad of anguish for my lost love.
I failed her
She left without a blink.
Yeah
Abandoned in a wilderness of regret,
I swim pass those sands of pains
Never hoping for any other love
For she one in all I thought I could ever have
