The Fall

from Ultraviolet by Misery Signals



O how I’ve tired of watching this change
The hardened shell that you became
What happened to those words once sang?
Once a messenger, once a king
Once the fire, once the flame, once shone light in darkest places
Guns and lies and wasted nights
Failing to judge thy self
Washed all away, stolen away 
By a thirst for self and fame
Your lust for the Sun
Your once great light, your once true heart
Lost to the maze, a dragon with rubies
Your once great light, your once true heart
Now giving way to darkness, now giving way to weakness and vanity
So disappointing to watch this change
The blackened heart that you became
A pale reflection of once great space
A lost defender of our faith
Now your fire stole away, no more light dust in trade
Shine no more
Now just the same as the wolves and pigs you claimed to hate
Once the fire, once the flame, once shone light darkest place 
Under black fell away, your once great light it now fades
Morphine lies, such wasted lives
Lost to the darkness
Now fly away to your safest place, nothing more to fight or chase, and sing your songs once more
Yes, fly away to those true days and untethered you can spread your light through the heavens
Fell to this world, lost those great wings
The once true message now means nothing
