this joy i hold, do i deserve it?
is this pain she wears a punishment?
long life of the wicked, irony of it all
why did you close your ears to their helpless call?
life is more than retribution
though absolutely there is right and wrong
i leap the fence of law and reason
only shadows all along
mercy triumphs over judgement
we talk more than we do
once my faith was illusion
now it's just in you
it all breaks down when we break with you
the death of God is my minds death too
cruelty is just an empty word
if good is just a point of view
if nothing's truly evil, then what can't they do to you
racked in pain beyond her years, innocent as she can be
would my ranting ease her pain?
who can a cynic free?
i have no answers for this child, though that you always knew
the only questions really asked, what now will i do?
