Shifted Astray – The Monster

Standing on the edge
my heart beating fast
is this my kingdom come?
Will it be the last?

Tired and wounded
Always looking back
eternally bonded
though there’s nothing left

Beautiful monster
why don’t you come
I’m struggling! Please, save me!
…before I’m gone

Beautiful monster
I saved your world
Now headed for darkness
I’m feeling cold.

Can’t go to heaven
hell wants me not
my time here is over
and now I’m lost

Nowhere to wander
Nowhere at all
carry my ashes
after I fall

Beautiful monster
why don’t you come
I’m struggling! Please, save me!
…before I’m gone

Beautiful monster
I saved your world
Now headed for darkness
I’m feeling cold.

My heart and my soul
fade from the dream
Hopes left the cause
Left nothing within

The roar of a thunder
is closing my tale,
dragging me under
Please don’t let me fail

Beautiful monster
why don’t you come
I’m struggling! Please, save me!
…before I’m gone

Beautiful monster
I saved your world
Now headed for darkness
I’m feeling cold.

No! No!
Don’t hide away!
No! No!
It will come my way!
No! No!
Don’t steal my dream
No! No!
I’ll brace my will
