This is a spoken word piece that I wrote. It is meant to be a transition track. It is an actual transition between tracks in the way that it morphs from the harmonic structure of Victims & Villains to that of Illusions & Chimeras. More than that it is a turning point in the story. The song represents defeat. It is the admission of failure and ultimately the realization that there was nothing that could have been done.


I sit freezing hearts in the snow. I sit all alone without hope, but I sit with purpose. This new defiance makes her nervous, making it ever more urgent to regain control of her servant. Too weak was my role.
I watch bleeding hearts in the rain. The tears drown the shame, blur lines between forgiveness and blame, forever multiplying as these feelings remain.
I lead a funeral march for ashes. I can't seem to move past the words burned in the heat of passion. Still, she shamelessly says I've lost faith. I've just blamelessly lost my way. Not blamelessly, but battered and broken on the side of the road, believing she would change, or could change, or that she loved me enough to try. In the meantime...
I'll sit all alone in the cold. I've nowhere left to go while blind hope floats my heart along a river that froze over long ago. My ears are numb from the silence, legs broken by the blindness. This pen is my release, the music my reprieve, to show despite it all I once believed in you and me.
