Frankestein’s Lament

Torches at the gates
Screaming village of hate
Below me angry justice awaits
I regret this hour’s grown late

I can see the pages of history
Not yet penned, but misunderstanding me
Unholy thought, an abomination of man
My words they’ll burn, and no one will understand

One of these days I’d make a thing of beauty
One of these days I’d conjure and angel
One of these days I’d make a thing of beauty
One of these days I’d conjure an angel

What was it Lazarus said
On waking up from the dead
Turning science into an art
My creation has broken my heart

All I ever wanted was to bring life
Where nature says there must be eternal night
The cease of sorrow and return of breath
If we can end life than why not death?

One of these days I’d make a thing of beauty
One of these days I’d conjure and angel
One of these days I’d make a thing of beauty
One of these days I’d conjure an angel

These Scars

Take me to a place where I will never be alone
The light is cold in a sky of gray where I make my home
I long to see a blade of green or a traveler on the road
Reach out my hand and feel the life in something I can hold

Place your hands upon these scars and feel
What I could’ve been
My deadened eyes can not reflect the flame
That lived within
I buried my soul as my body cried to live
And begged for you
If only…
If only…

Doors stood open but I lacked the courage to walk through
The darkness on the other side froze me in my pursuit
Solitude is what I reap of a misbegotten view
But while there is breath in me I yet may begin anew

Place your hands upon these scars and feel
What I could’ve been
My deadened eyes can not reflect the flame
That lived within
I buried my soul as my body cried to live
And begged for you

Wash me…
Make me clean…
And I will start again

Follow You Home

It’s getting where your eyes are harder to ignore
Silently suggesting things I haven’t known before
Though others came and went, you’re the first to think
I ever could be anything other than what I’ve been

Don’t take my hand just to let it go
And walk away, away from me
I’ll never find a way home
That doesn’t lead to you

I’d been watched and been undressed but never really seen
Didn’t take much to spot the wreck I make of things
I didn’t mean to let you in, but still you made the choice
To lay your head beside mine so I could hear your voice

Don’t take my hand just to let it go
And walk away, away from me
I’ll never find a way home
That doesn’t lead to you

I never even found a home
Until I found you
