lyrics

"Finally awoken by the beckoning of the past
Where I, befuddled by the quest for satisfaction
Only satirized by the life of a materialist
Finally I left the specious path I chose
Forfeited my possessions that made me go astray
A soul drowned in guilt that I forsake’d you
Forlorn pursuit of pleasure, forlorn that I left you
I receded while repentance landed ravaging blows

Even as I retreated, still reminiscent, were your anxious eyes
And how I scrounged your bliss with my impulsive lies provoked by avarice
And before long I reached, but my feet atrophied to contrition’s onslaught
But soon I ventured inside, while shadows conspired a sinister plot….

Passing the ingress, I was astounded by the unperturbed content
While I stood aghast, only my eyes could dare but manage motion
Mystified, I looked around to halt at the emergence of her feet
There she stood, but by then, even my eyes had surrendered
As those feet slipped closer, I could feel the chill go down my spine
“Come... take rest... you must be tired”, she said and turned away
Bewildered by her conciseness and content, I touched her shoulder
And flash of an unholy light knocked me unconscious!

And when I opened my eyes, all I could see was fire, but my body didn’t burn
Was all this a dream? Is it that I’m dead? Was I burned alive?
And I heard her scream, she was falling off the stairs, her body was on fire
I rushed to hold her, but tumbled and fell down, unconscious again….

This time when I got up I saw…
The house was battered and dark
The walls were black
There was nothing but ashes
And it all appeared to have been corroding for years

And evil winds kissed my face like I was being prepared for a sacrifice
Adored before getting beheaded
And allured to accept the pain they’d bestow upon me

And from the dark, a ghoul emerged
My heart confirmed that was the end
Now I knew what was going on
It was all a perfect plan to escort me to my demise

She showed me how she killed herself
Suicide was her only escape from the memories
And this is what all this long she had waited for
To shower her rage, to have her revenge….

SINS YOU COMMIT STAY UNFORGIVEN
YOU PAY FOR THEM IN THIS LIFE ITSELF
NO MATTER HOW LONG, HOW FAR YOU RUN
YOU WILL EVENTUALLY RECEDE TO DEATH"

[Lyrics: Samar Mehdi]
