Serene Image (Flesh Field)

They say you can be defined That the parts make up the sum You are not simply what you do I am not only what I've done We fell from grace only recently So I hid my face to keep my sanity This plague, it eats a little more of me away This rage, it will destroy what I've become some day The new year opens with tears No shield for this pain The sobs that burn my ears The sobs that pound like rain A deep seeded hatred of our fellow man Contempt for all other life Not so unlike a swarm of flies But still we think we know what's right I stare back at my face My eyes must show no sign Of all I've come to regret I'm all I've come to despise
