The Clockwork Fable

This song is by Gandalf's Fist and appears on the album The Clockwork Fable (2016).

What were you, never cursed with growing up
Born to fail, not to live as one of us
And betray your trust
Trade your heart for dust
Rusting eyes, try to cry but words don't come
Afraid of life, the dreams you'd only miss out on
Afraid automaton, blinked and now he's gone

A soul slips away, the sorrow in me
Could it be this life was a clockwork fable?
A child's masquerade, to make life your game
As you read the page in the clockwork fable

Time will tell, not that time was on our side
Setting sail, winds that blow from darkest tides
The current of our lives, at its ebb tonight
Waves of hate, break the wall and flood with light
Oh it craves to stay, don't you haunt these shores my child
Where dark horizons lie, a sleeping sun will rise

A soul slips away, the sorrow in me
Could it be this life was a clockwork fable?
A child's masquerade, to make life your game
As you take your place in the clockwork fable
