Begone ye screams of silence, harbingers of pain,
Cloaked in isolation, you mock in harsh disdain,
My soul is torn usunder, I curse you God of Hell,
As you pierced my tortured soul, what horrors I befell,
You spoke of quiet solitude, to tempt me to your lair,
Then lanced me in my troubled heart to depths of dark despair.
Nemesis, I beg of thee, rise up in righteous ire,
Protect me from Tisiphone, from Hell's eternal fire,
With all my voice I scream to you, protect me from the night,
Alas, in desperation, I journey to the light,
Banished to mind's coventry, I heed the demon's call,
Beckoned by the silent screams, I enter Dante's Hall,
Drawn into the vortex, I hope and pray to find,
Total absolution, illusions of the mind?
Drowning in disharmony, upon a tranquil sea,
Adrift upon the river Styx, am blind but yet I see,
Bowing to Mephistopheles, as Faust I sell my soul,
Unto the Fallen Angels, at last I cede control,
On bended knee I enter, the world of waking dreams,
Final absolution, farewell to silent screams.

Adrift in gloom of endless pain,
Dark swirling eddys that remain,
Within the chasm of my mind,
In blackest void, I seek to find,
Absolution, inner peace,
From Prince of Darkness, pain's release.
