All Roads

from by Tactus



I had always wandered this road alone
An angel took my hand
Showed me a light I'd never known
Fear faded
Never far from where I lay my head

So shadows would creep inside and taint the guiding light
And veil my eyes in the black of night

Now this darkness abound
Would show me things I should never have found
Now underground, malice drowned by deafening sound
Wearing rage for a crown

You dare walk this road by my side
When every road you walked before could never match my stride
You carve a scar on every path left behind

Illusion takes hold, pulls a shade over my eyes
Deception illuminating a flame fed by false pride
How could something so sullied walk the humble path before me
And yet appear as something pure that adores me?
What could you want from me?
Why do you taunt my soul?
What do you stand to gain
By showing me light and then taking it away?
This can't be truth
It makes no sense

It is my own failings blocking the light
There is only love in your eyes
