Author's note: Many thanks and my eternal love to both my soul-mate (Diosa says hi to Shade) and Nicole Sabatti. I know that we will be together long after this world has forgotten us.

Lost in darkness…

Lost in darkness but blinded by light

desperately I wage a losing fight.

Tears always pain me but laughter's my fear

and I know my soul is a prisoner here

Bruised and beaten I'll shed silent tears

of blood and humiliation till the end of my years.

No one can help me, they'd be fools to try

to save something that's torn and empty inside

Cursed to live but doomed to die.

I beg to be buried in a grave of lies

for here I am nothing and nothing is me

I'm trapped in torment for eternity

Bruised and beaten I'll shed silent tears

of blood and humiliation till the end of my years.

No one can help me, they'd be fools to try

to save something that's torn and empty inside

Not of the dead or living; I'm trapped in between

where no one can hear my agonised screams.

Lost in the darkness but blinded by light

I give up the battle,

I'm broken tonight.

Bruised and beaten I'll shed silent tears

of blood and humiliation till the end of my years

No one can help me, they'd be fools to try

to save something that's torn and empty inside

Lost in the darkness but blinded by light

I give up the battle,

I'm broken tonight

The end…
