lyrics

I’VE BEEN STARING AT THIS WORLD FOR HOURS
IN MY MIND I’VE PAINTED A DOZEN WHITE FLOWERS
I’VE BEEN STARING AT THIS WALL FOR MOST OF MY LIFE
IN MY MINDS EYE I’VE PAINTED A SINGLE WHITE FLOWER

I NEED TO BE FREE FROM THE GUILT OF THE
MANY LIVES LOST BECAUSE OF ME
THE PAIN WEIGHS HEAVY ON THE HEART
OF A MAN BLINDED BY A VICTORIOUS START

I’VE OVERCOME BOTH CREATURES AND GODS
BUT THE SORROW OF THOSE LAID TO REST
AS I KNEEL BLOODIED AND ALONE
MY KNEES TOUCHING THE WATER
AND THE SAND AT MY TOES
FACING THE HEAVENS I RECALL MY ENCOUNTERS WITH YOU...

BETWEEN SCYLLA AND CHARYBDIS
THAT I SURVIVED WITH MANY SURPASSED
NOW ALONE I WILL FAULTER
THIS BLOOM HAS WILTED, I’M READY TO GO
SPEAK NOT MY NAME OR THE THINGS THAT I’VE DONE
BUT RATHER OF THOSE MANY BRAVE
WHO WERE LOST TO THE SUN
THE MANY WHO FELL TO THE SEA
THOSE PERISHED DURING THE ASCENTION

I BEG OF YOU TO TAKE ME
I’M COMING HOME
I BEG OF YOU MY MAKER
PLEASE TAKE ME HOME
