I sit upon the ocean floor
And look above where clouds adorned
My mother moon in all her jewels
Was then the Lady Pale arrived
She scold me of my earthly lies
Her hands did wave the winds of east
Her eye's gazed out blasting pain
Then, I knew this was my end
Her arms did wake my mother moon
Her blood spent tears came, oh, too soon
I thought I felt her cold hard hand
But was fear of, that truth on ran
My life of woe as me did fright,
By this cold moonlit cloudy night
Her Face so pale expressions no
Her ghostly posture seem to flow
To the ocean floor where I sat
There was nothing wrong, she would let me forget
It was hard to tell her gown form skin
The white of pale all blended in
I felt the chill of cold hard breeze
Yet herd the rustle of the trees
Imagine how I could here these trees
As I sat upon the ocean floor,
Its the waves of torment bringing more
My earthly lies would never end
My mind gave in to the smallest glimpse
For life I knew in beauty spent
The fragments of past just zoomed on by
In Seconds they seemed to fly
With sounds of echo ringing in,
The truth of all my earthly sins
The Pale Lady continued on
I shall never see the break of dawn
Forgiveness comes never more
This is where I am to be
In torment for eternity
