Pushed through life what others want my true self lost beneath the dust
Escape denied 'till I move on and reach the time of my new dawn
No aid from you when I pleaded my case
You denied me that right to my face
On I must go now completely alone
I am reaping what someone else has sown.

When I reveal what is inside people step back but still push me aside
I am unfound can't reveal why when it unfolds too late to cry
What's done is done, what's gone is gone
There's no looking back at the shit that went on
Now you must heed the warning I give
If you want a half chance to live.

Promise to keep as life extends to a new place after this ends
A chosen few will be recalled those who found one who was falled
For this you may fix your price
I'm in your debt, no need to think twice
All of my power I'll turn to your aid
Thanks never complete 'till my debt is re-paid

Dulled ambition - broken down will, tenderised mind makes an easier kill
Feelings in exile awaiting return I am unfound soon it's your turn.
When this time is so my attention you'll draw
To the hours of pain you dealt without flaw
Now I attack with a stronger mind
You're facing a fury that's completely blind.

I live denied
Can't turn it around
My hands feel tied
I am unfound.
