Betrayal/Forgiveness Lyrics

Vocal: Perttu Kivilaakso
Lyrics: Perttu Kivilaakso
Album: "Apocalyptica"

All that I ever wanted -
To understand my nightmares
Possessed by my fears
Betrayed by my Pride
Alone I wandered in the deepest Dark
Seeking comfort from the vanity

Each time I escape the Real
My soul died, died a bit more
Confronting the evil within
Praying for my angel to appear
Agonized whisper into the emptiness
Begging for salvation -
Salvation for this cursed mind

Words without meaning
Touch without feeling
-I did not recognize my own face...
Eyes that were once shining
-Now extinguished
Left only a silent cold
Sound of a tear falling down
In the desperate hour of loneliness
This shattered heart reaching
For it's relief -
The relief it can not find

Glance without affection
Kiss without sensitivity
Promise without comprehension
Love without hope
-I do not remember my own tale...

Betrayed by my Anger
Betrayed by my Beliefs
Betrayed by my Delusions
Betrayed by my Lust
(I wish)

Strength - to be released from my demons
(I desire)

Wisdom - to forgive the past
- To forgive Me
