A melancholic burning soul
turned to ice and let go
out into the darkness to become lost in a world so
violent, running rampant and out of control
sinking below the very dirt he strolls across
walking forward carelessly, although he's lost
always looking over his shoulder cause he is not prepared
deployed, filled with peril and fear, scared
of the harsh realities he has yet to realize
just what he envisions through his naked eyes
what his little mind can allow
he asks himself how have i led myself astray
into the hands of illogical, now seemingly unavoidable dismay


where are you now
lonely avenger of your past?
fueled by revenge, fear and wrath
where are you now?
lost soul, crying out freedom at last!
but its not freedom
into a new cell, a new cage you have been cast
remember when you were so happy and joyful
so lovely, so charming, so earthbound and loyal
to your cause, which was peace and harmony
remember when your presence filled us with a state of quality
now i have to look at your life to imagine where you are
now i have to look at the skies to imagine if were looking at the same star
how far away are you young avenger?
its hard to remember you in the heart of this bleak september

on pace to find answers to his nightmares
still he thinks the cold, drearily old world cares
for his vein cries
still he tries to find, and fit an explanation
to the world unexplainable lies
he is lost in a maze to which there is no exit
lost in a craze, decieved no wisdom will he merit
pain he feels, but with no loved ones in which to share it
and talk about it, just bottled up, held in, forced to grin and bear it
through icy winds
his bruised shins
torn skin
is frozen
now his head spins
he falls down, he cries out
but no one hears him shout
he pouts, wanders about, losing his mind, the very madness he sought out
the madness he called out, the madness he brought about
into his own world, it unfurled
now hes curled up in a ball
ear against the wall, waiting for someone that loves him to call

where are you now
lonely avenger of your past?
fueled by revenge, fear and wrath
where are you now?
lost soul, crying out freedom at last!
but its not freedom
into a new cell, a new cage you have been cast
remember when you were so happy and joyful
so lovely, so charming, so earthbound and loyal
to your cause, which was peace and harmony
remember when your presence filled us with a state of quality
now i have to look at your life to imagine where you are
now i have to look at the skies to imagine if were looking at the same star
how far away are you young avenger?
its hard to remember you in the heart of this bleak september

i wonder where you are
how close or how far
i say a prayer everyday
hope the best for you
in every which and every way
sometimes i fear
you've ended up dead
sometimes i hear your weary voice in my head
old laughs we've shared
resounding words you've said
now through your eyes
i have to see
in order to feel
that your with me
and not alone in the world that tormented you
re invented you
and dissected you
exposed your fears
inticed your tears
its been years...
but somehow your still here
sitting right next to me
even to this day
you are so close
yet so far away
oh avenger
are you looking at the same star as i?
in a way you are
cause i'm always looking at life through your eyes
