Old torments never heal (2015)

At no time will my woes go away

My life is a rough ordeal

Broken endlessly

Old torments never heal

My mental aches will never vanish

Don't even think I'm real

Always incomplete

Old torments never heal

Forever distress will harass me

Helpless I feel

Everlasting damaged

Old torments never heal

Nevermore will my soul be free of pain

Only darkness it reveals

My life is not intact

Old torments never heal

My torments will never leave

I'm an open book with nothing to conceal

Never to be made whole again

Old torments will haunt but never heal

Helpless I feel
Everlasting damaged

Scarville (2015)

Agony has blistered into disfigurement

Into my soul pain was instilled

Distress has moved into my mind

Emotionally living in Scarville

A passionate misery has made me defective

Life is no longer a thrill

Enduring constant abuse

Emotionally living in Scarville

Aches afflict me

For a healing I have no will

Damaged is my spirit's seat

Emotionally living in Scarville

Grief enthusiastically tortures me

Never emptied and it always refills

The harm caused shows my scabs

Emotionally living in Scarville

My life is ruled by pangs

Emotional sufferings flow from my quill

Flaws within my wounds will always dwell

Emotionally living in Scarville

Flick of a switch (2015)

Abrupt sadness

Depression starts its itch

Just one ordinary moment

At the flick of a switch

Rapid despondency

Getting that emotional glitch

Just a ordinary day

At the flick of a switch

Hasty hopelessness

Depression threw me a wicked pitch

Thought I was feeling whole again

When suddenly the flick of a switch

Unexpected dejection

Quickly getting that hollow twitch

Depression comes like a flash

At the flick of a switch

Oasis (2015)

A refuge in quiet surroundings

Away from any crisis

Enjoying it for just an instant

Oasis

A haven for calm living

Here would be a nice hiatus

Even for just a twinkling of an eye

Oasis

A shelter of serenity

To help attain a deeper purpose of patience

Helps me feel at ease

Oasis

A peaceful retreat

For a relaxing silence I have a basis

Indefinite tranquility from my troubles

Oasis

Mean Leprechaun (2015)

In pursuit of good luck

To the end of a rainbow I've been drawn

At the end of this rainbow there is no happiness

Just this mean leprechaun

Seeking a merry path to good fortune

On this quest I have gone

At the end of this rainbow there is no happiness

Just this mean leprechaun

I'm hunting for golden riches

Rising early at dawn

At the end of this rainbow there is no happiness

Just this mean leprechaun

Exploring for cheerfulness

Looking for that blessed beyond

At the end of this rainbow there is no happiness

Just this mean leprechaun

I'll find that mythical pot of gold

Taiwan, the Yukon, or Tucson

I'll be relentless like Genghis Khan

I'll catch this mean leprechaun

Cabin punishment (2015)

Abducted to a cabin in the woods

Being used as someone's amusement

Been pummeled into extreme agony

I'm suffering in cabin punishment

At a remote shack in a grove

Collecting my blood as a payment

Striking me repeatedly

My remembrance of this cabin punishment

Carried off to the middle of the woods

Beaten with numerous instruments

My captors have blindfolded me

My unsolved mystery of this cabin punishment

Shackled in chains

The end of my days seem evident

Frightened because I don't know their reason

I'm feeling dismayed with this cabin punishment

In a dwelling out in this dark forest

Any second could be my final moment

Death is drawing my curtain

I'm feeling torment with this cabin punishment

Heart bleeds with despair (2015)

The center of my emotions grieve

Living my eternal nightmare

Trusting to end this torment

My heart bleeds with despair

Nucleus of my feelings are full of hopelessness

Beginning to lose all care

Faith of dispelling disorder is gone

My heart bleeds with despair

The core of my optimism is broken

My life is on the road to nowhere

No confidence of ending my affliction

My heart bleeds with despair

My inside is full of discouragement

Happiness has become rare

I expect only hardships

My heart bleeds with despair

I sorrow in gloom

My life I cannot repair

Only an anticipation of depression

My heart bleeds with despair

Turning human (2015)

I disagree that man is naturally good

It's just a big illusion

Man alters into a corrupt state

We all turn human

I'm in conflict that man is generous

Eventually man leads us into ruin

Swerves us into tainted lifestyles

We all turn human

I dispute that society is generally moral

Look around you, it is proven

Man reverses into wickedness

We all turn human

People is not reliable

With good or bad there is no union

Twisting into a harmful imperfection

We all turn human

Lost and alone (2015)

Expectations have gone adrift

Blown away by misery's cyclone

Nobody believes in me

I'm lost and alone

Unable to find my way

This doubt causes me to groan

Rely only on myself

I'm lost and alone

Full of confusion

Sitting upon my melancholy throne

A solitary dependence

I'm lost and alone

My faith has been dazed

My life has been disowned

Left by all those who know me

I'm lost and alone

Consumed by unfulfilled dreams

I'll probably die being unknown

Only confident in myself

I'm lost and alone

Tomorrow's another day (2015)

Are opportunities about to change?

On me depression has put its harness

This routine of dejection

Tomorrow's another day of sadness

No possibilities of a new opening

My sky remains starless

Fresh despondency lies before me

Tomorrow's another day of sadness

More chances for calamity

I only receive more harshness

More distress

Tomorrow's another day of sadness

At sunrise my bad luck begins

A prisoner in my own cheerless abyss

I confess that some days I wish to die

Tomorrow's another day of sadness
