Treasure Island

Holly Heron

I See A Sky Painted Black


I see a sky painted black
I see a home without love
I see a heart frozen from cold
I see a world up in flames

The world is collapsing about me
And doom it rises to take
It takes the lives of the evil
And rapes the souls of the pure

I see a sky painted black
A river of flame at it's core
I see a home without love
Demons of hate at its door
I see a heart frozen from cold
Now and so long forlorn
I see a world up in flames
And noone is left to it mourn

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
