Track Name: Hidden Sorrows
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Glimpse of the Past
GLIMPSE OF THE PAST

There was a time,
A place in my life.
Things were stable,
All was calm.

Memories of winter
Gentle snowfall.
Cold air greeting my nose,
So long ago.

The lonely forest,
Place of solitude.
Calm & peaceful,
I remember it still.

Embraced by trees,
Ice covered leaves.
Wonder of this realm,
Hope it will return.
Track Name: Oh the Pain, Oh the Joy
OH THE PAIN, OH THE JOY

Day after day I struggle in vain,
To find the calm I seek.
Endless flow, thoughts my own,
Frustrate my planned peace.
Pain now my teacher,
The only voice I heed.
Daggers in my chest,
Down on my knees.
Over active mind,
Relentless and obtuse.
Knows no right or wrong,
Have no right to choose.
Puppet for my mind,
Inflicting blind pain.
When will it learn?
When will it refrain?

Despair leads me forth,
To take the path I dread.
Towards the precipice of lost control,
I stumble and quake within.
Looking down I see,
A cavern so deep.
The only way is down,
To life or death.
Behind me lies the past,
Failure and distress.
Emboldened by no alternative,
I launch out and down.
Track Name: Embrace of Thorns
EMBRACE OF THORNS

Piercing grip,
Relentless hold.
Deepest pain,
Words untold.

-Chorus-

Thorns,
In my flesh remain.
Embraced,
Driving me insane.

Infernal disease,
Defying my will.
Pathetic state,
Longing to kill.

-Chorus-

Repeated demise,
Failure again.
Progress in doubt,
Wrestled in vain.

-Chorus-
Track Name: Whispers of Despair
WHISPERS OF DESPAIR

Hope is lost,
Try no more.
All is death,
Pain & sore.
Tried my best,
But lost the battle.
Strength was weak,
Mind was strong.

Sorrow is mine,
Grief my only friend.
End of search,
End of quest.
Gave my all,
For the mystery.
Still so far,
Out of reach.

Whispers of despair,
Fill my mind.
Reaching out for me,
Nowhere to hide.
Nothing to find,
Give up now.

Once I believed,
Would find peace.
No longer hope,
The end for me.
Is here to see,
My fate is sealed.
Track Name: Surrounded by the Unseen
SURROUNDED BY THE UNSEEN

I thought I was alone,
On this journey of pain.
But an unseen Hand,
Guides my way.

Where I tread,
He goes before.
Never was alone,
Always by my side.

The way still hard,
But stronger am I.
Knowing my path,
Is planned By Him.

Bolder I now step,
Into the mist beyond.
Learning all the time,
One day to be strong.
Track Name: Reign of Chaos
REIGN OF CHAOS

Rising tides,
Storms begin.
Gales commence,
Clouds comes in.
Lightening strikes,
Thunder cracks.
Sun is gone,
Sky turns black.

-Chorus-
Reign of chaos,
Time of fear.
Struggle to gain control,
Inner turmoil.
Mind prevails,
Failed the endless goal.

Anguish rules,
Peace no more.
On this night,
Many before.
Distant past,
Memories faint.
Times of joy,
Replaced by pain.

-Chorus-

Writhing state,
Powerless rise.
Trapped, entombed,
Behind my eyes.
No release,
Dying hope.
Only despair?
When to cope?

-Chorus-

Hours pass,
Constant quest.
Diligent search,
Elusive rest.
Energy drained,
Weary mind.
Journey on,
Peace to find?

-Chorus-
Track Name: Blessed are Those
BLESSED ARE THOSE

Blessed are those,
Who suffer anguish.
They seek to,
Understand God's Love.

They desire release,
From pain & grief.
From briars & thorns,
That ensnare their minds.

Struggling to hide,
From danger & pain.
Within Greater Hands,
They've always been kept.
