    Lyrics

    I was born amidst the purple waterfalls.
    I was weak, yet not unblessed.
    Dead to the world, alive for the journey.
    One night I dreamt a white rose withering,
    a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
    I dreamt all my future, relived my past,
    and witnessed the beauty of the Beast

    Where have all the feelings gone?
    Why has all the laughter ceased?
    Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
    Gone back in time to bless the child.

    How can I ever feel again?
    Given the chance would I return?
    Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
    Gone back in time to bless the child.
    Think of me long enough to make a memory.
    Come bless the child one more time.

    I've never felt so alone in my life.
    As I drank from a cup which was counting my time.
    There's a poison drop in this cup of man,
    To drink it is to follow the left hand path.

    Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
    Gone back in time to bless the child.
    Think of me long enough to make a memory.
    Come bless the child one more time.

    Think of me long enough to make a memory.
    Come bless the child one more time.

    "Where have all the feelings gone?
    Why is it the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you?
    Now unblessed, homesick in time, soon to be freed from care,
    from human pain.
    My tale is the most bitter truth: Time pays us
    with but earth & dust, and a dark, silent grave.
    Remember my child:
    without innocence the cross is only iron,
    hope is only an illusion,
    an oceansoul's nothing but a name...
    The Child bless thee and keep thee forever"
