Forever Night

This song is by Anagnorisis and appears on the album Beyond All Light (2013).

This is not existence
It was never meant to be
Rehabilitation by domination
Cuts made to remove physical beauty
Forever reminders of what I have become

Infinite as memories, until forgotten
Not cured of this pain
Just removed from its presence
Hope hollowed out
Filled in with negativity
Laid to rest within this concrete womb
Feeding me lies and false hopes
Numbered and cataloged
Within this mother I abhor
Nurtured with the waste of this world

Rotting alive
Forever night

Forced Christ
Worthless life
Failing me
Like humanity failed you

Martyred for the ease of affection
Helplessly abused by the words of change
There is nothing we can do to heal this wound
Terminally nurtured from birth

Shedding this Christian skin
To be reborn in blackest sin!

Steeple laid to waste
Like the moments leading me here
Bell tarnished in the charred remains
Patina takes its toll
Everything is elemental loss
Hanging like the fool on the cross
Wound with twine of death
Eternity begins with a single step
This is the first of the last
This moment bound forever
What's cursed must die

And it's only getting worse
I beg for your forgiveness
I wish you knew
The hell inside my head
Every dream I've ever had has died
But soon enough I'll get it right
On my terms
In my own light
Energy returns to the universe
Forever night
