if priests are princes' hallowed shadowed souls
if devils are angels cast to know
I live forever with a sharp regret it might be a surprise to know I never wished for death
a hint of misery made its way along
to those who've never harmed or never wronged
if honesty changed the hearts of men
who could contend?
if all I thought were true
in this great divide that is my life
I fear to think of all I'd undo
if all I thought were true...
even my own ears would never care to know
what deep inside ourselves our hearts behold a sky in shards, our world's unraveled parts
impossible to piece as one in our unending dark
