Start End

Start End

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

Goth style lyrics about life and myself

"

My heart breaks whenever I see your face

The person you use to be is gone

Only an empty shell remains

Grey clouds offer no rain

 

Scars on your soul will always be

Crawled out of one shell to find another

Images still burn you in time

Can’t escape the softness of a dove

 

Embrace the burning embers

Smear on the ash

Embrace the burning embers

Freeze in carbinite

 

Swings are empty the sun grows cold

There is a heavy price for growing old

Wrinkles were splinters use to be

Faded dreams replaced by convulsions

 

Your lofty ways been sold

A high bid by a gypsy fold

The machines you tried to beat down

Now softly oil you to a sleepy numbness

 

Embrace the burning embers

Smear ash on your face

Embrace the burning embers

Freeze in carbinite

 

Life only flows one way

Time never swings back around

Touch the circle you can’t see

No more pain only tranquility

 

My heart breaks whenever I see your face

The person you use to be is gone

Only an empty shell remains

Grey clouds offer no rain

thank u very much
Lovely song poignant . Love the lines
Life only flows one way
Time never swings back around
Touch the circle you can’t see
No more pain only tranquility
and the chorus.
