For You I Gave it All

Cast not these doubts aside as you revel unto glory
And yet it dies, upon a lonesome shore
But reality is not a tool for friendship
And one's worth cannot be scored
But I'm losing
And this battle is far from over.

Oh I'll follow you to the ends of the Earth
And let you torture me so
Spit in my face, and thrust disgrace
Until my blood is soaked no more
And split the hands that held you close
And kissed the face of the holy ghost
Who cast only me aside 
And bade me unto fall
I suffered in the pain
But, for you I'd take it all. 

I'm torn inside
And my heart is reeling
whose strings did snap within thin air
And broken, battered, lying lifeless
Upon the ground in disrepair
I cannot move, nor can I breathe
Like severed shackles who beg reprieve
And into the air, I am released
To fall and break yet once again
But this time, more with ease
My hands; they would not catch me
And I was forced to watch them bleed
I suffered in the pain
But for you, I'd let them be. 

My eyes; they screamed for mercy
As I was blinded by your hate
Yet this "reasoning" is nothing more
Than unadulterated fate
Blissful in the evening, when the dark has come of late
And cuts into the bone of the soul it hopes to take
Yet I was baptized
Unto the very gates of Hell
Lost and withered in my decisions to grant you peace of mind
I suffered in the pain
But for you, I'd slowly die

I wallowed in your pity
Until it coated my own skin
Until it burned straight through my flesh
And then baited me to sin
Whose claws did capture and enrapture my heart that lay within
And grazed into my very being that forced me to begin
This long and hateful journey, that merely started on a whim
Drink me whole until I'm gone and finally lost inside
I suffered in the pain
But for you... I gave my life.
