Hear me oh Mighty One! Take these years of blood from the river!
Take this broken heart oh Mighty One! Take these broken wings!
Take this cold, cold fire, that makes me shiver!
Take all! Take all! For all the pain it brings!
Oh Mighty One! I implore you! Take these chains that bind me!
For I can see the sun no longer! Only blackness do I see!
Take it all oh Mighty One! Take it and set me free!
For I am weary! Tis too heavy, don’t want to be!
Give me new wings that I might fly! Oh Mighty One hear my plea!
The pain is great my soul is broken!
I am lost! I am lost! Lost in a blood red sea!
Too many times I have silently screamed! Even before I have awoken!
Hear me oh Mighty One! Hear all those within!
Take these tears of blood from the river!
Hear me oh Mighty One! I plead with you now!
I cannot take this burden! Oh Mighty One! Do not let it win!
Oh Mighty One! Let me fly again, show me how!
