damnation

Damnation

Last night the moon fell at my feet
Making disaster complete
A sign of total defeat
Last night the moon crashed to the ground
Got lost to never again be found
Left me tumbling around
Last night the moon committed suicide
Leaving behind a darker night
Thus ending the fight

Today I watched the sun rise dazzlingly
For a creature as unworthy as me
Such a miracle to see
Today I watched the sun rise way up high
Replacing the moon-hole in the sky
Making me start to cry
Today I watched the sun spread its rays
Tantalizing in so many ways
It had me grieve for days

I’m the damndest creature walking this earth
Doomed right from the moment of birth
I wallow in self-pity without end
Fight a destiny I cannot fend

I’m the cruellest being hauting this globe
Suffering cruelly without any hope
I fight the urge to live in light
Endlessly on the flight

I’m the strangest creation in the universe
Burdened by an insatiable thirst
I detest my own creation
Horrible situation

I’m the most miserable inhabitant of this world
Thousand curses have been hurled
A million charms can’t kill
My god-damned will

Last night the moon fell at my feet
My heart almost forgot to beat
A most impossible feat
Last night the moon crashed to the ground
Perishing without the slightest sound
As though it were home-bound
Last night the moon committed suicide
Such a truly devastating sight
I prayed with all might

I’m the damndest creature walking the earth
I’m the cruellest being haunting this globe
I’m the strangest creation in this universe
I’m the most miserable inhabitant of this world

Condemned to belong to the Undead forever
But eternity’s tortures have made me clever
