Artist: Paradise Lost
Album: One Second
You live for time of solace
Within a sign there's a promise
Don't lose all faith 'cause you shake at night
It's in the art of the process
In another rhyme beyond this place
The healing's fast enough...
Done a thousand times a thousand ways
Until you've had enough
...it's mercy you're asking for
Cheating life by taking more
It's mercy you're asking for
Take my life or give me more...
The loss of prize possessions
To cure the mind's obsessions
Could trade your soul for that normal life
Elite to all objections...
See beyond all tears and broken years
Your senses giving up
Lose all confidence at your expense
Your courage swallowed up.
