Leaves of Laughter

Silent misfortunes befall those who dwell

In depressed corridors of darkened minds

Seeds of doubt grow into trees of deceipt

These branches sprout leaves of laughter

So now you are on a ship

Set sail to the dark abyss

In your eyes, a fire alights

Burned like a crucifix

The fiery waters make for a rough ride

Infernos burst forth at high tide

There is no oil in sight

And yet it burns, it burns

Silent misfortunes befall those who dwell

In depressed corridors of darkened minds

Seeds of doubt grow into trees of deceipt

These branches sprout leaves of laughter

A beach of broken bones lies ahead

Skulls and femurs of the dead

From the fire to the cold

Can we break death's mighty hold?

Seems like things are slipping

Even two feet on dry land can fail

Stuck in a place that's neither hot nor cold

On a journey that's bound to fail

Silent misfortunes befall those who dwell

In depressed corridors of darkened minds

Seeds of doubt grow into trees of deceipt

These branches sprout leaves of laughter

Feels like forever in a moment

We can't go forward into the past

One foot in front of the other

Moving forward again at last

And he who stands afore us

Is our greatest foe

There is no one here to save us

We are alone

Silent misfortunes befall those who dwell

In depressed corridors of darkened minds

Seeds of doubt grow into trees of deceipt

These branches sprout leaves of laughter

And in the deepest corners of my mind

I am flawed by some grand design

It seems that my one true enemy

Is the one and only, me

So I stab this dagger into my heart

I have done what I can

I have won and lost the fight

I no longer stand

Silent misfortunes befall those who dwell

In depressed corridors of darkened minds

Seeds of doubt grow into trees of deceipt

These branches sprout leaves of laughter

Silent misfortunes befall those who dwell

In depressed corridors of darkened minds

Seeds of doubt grow into trees of deceipt

These branches sprout leaves of laughter
