A Chapter by Searching 4 Serenity

Where am I going?

*Neah!* *Bah* *Neah!* *Bah*

~Whispered moans~
Is it a goat? Is it a lamb?
Is he a saint? Part of the damned?
I cannot tell. Such a nice guy 
He rings a bell. Holds it up high
~Whispered moans~

~Satan shouting~
I'm bringing you with me tonight
Tricking you fools with my cursed plight
My goal is to make your life suck
Making you feel at home in muck

~Satan shouting~

~Whispered moans~
He brings me up to bring me down
Like crashing waves that make you drown
I am confused from rocking sways
Just like a lamb, I've gone astray
~Whispered moans~

~Satan shouting~
Now you are caught in my death trap
Don't even try there's no turning back
As you begin to slowly die
I am starting to come alive

~Satan shouting~

Chorus: ~Pained Innocence~
Stop tormenting me     (Gdramatic-slide
F  G-G-F  Ab)
All I want is to see      
(D  Ab  F  Bb  Ab  G)
I hate this disease       (Gdramatic-slideF  G  G  F-Ab)
Why can't I be free?     (G  Bb A  Ab  G)
~Pained Innocence~

~Whispered moans~
What is this life truly meant for?
Why do I feel like I need more?
All of these *THINGS!* that I hold dear
They never bring me any cheer
~Whispered moans~

~Satan shouting~
I am holding you back with fear
Making you numb with a jabbing spear
Just like a white noise from afar
Soon you forget. Now burn like tar!

~Satan shouting~


Confusion... Temptation... Suggestions... Intentions...
Obsessions!... Possessions!... Aggression!... Addictions!.... ....




~Closing~      ~Pained Innocence~

Why can't I be free?    (G  Bb A  Ab  G)

I want to be free     (G  Bb A  Ab  G)

I need to be free     (G  Bb A  Ab  G)

Please, let me be... free      (G  Bb A  Ab  Gshaky last breath)

~Closing~          ~Pained Innocence~

A guided piece that leads the reader to denounce all reason of battle and look deep within the mind of the fighter at hand, well done, great read.

Amzing work! Lyrically these are stunning and as a poem - but I think there is a fine line between poetry and lyrics anyway :)
I am in awe of this love! The struggle happening is so well versed....the questioning is crystal clear....
A brilliant piece of work!

I can feel the struggle in this song. I love the image of the bell being held high, it's a great hook.
