Temple Of The Empty (Crescent Shield)

Whisper, do not allow the loud Keep all angst unseen Silent the thoughts that do one sway Make yourself to... Believe Up and away it's a brand new day Again we hear, again we've spoken Only the words they wish we speak Not true thoughts of our heart Again and again we row perfect stroke To the beat of the drum of the pacing master Promises laced with lies We see the truth that we choose not to see Wretched frowns painted upside-down With artistic hands perfect liars Drowned by the pain of useless gain Feel the ache in your heart Gather round we will make you proud With false icons of grand achievement Body soft and a brain that burns I'll be here tomorrow yet still I'm gone today Slowly closing my eyes (I'll blind the things I need to see) Feel no more (I will not be) Hear my cries (Cry to the ears that do not hear) Empty is... the treasured temple that is me Passive, cold and fair are words I give to you But you won't know 'cause I will not reveal The unmasked pain in my heart Time I feel my anger will engage And erupt my patient emotional magma Shut down numb with ever glazed eyes and Keep an agreed dull sting always denied Always holding inside (The tears who will not choose to fall) Feel no more (Nothing at all) Senses gone (Until I feel a safer calm) Empty is my only temple If I could, only could understand If I had a darker reason If the answers could find me Then maybe then I could flush away the madness Ever shaking and twitching is My mind of lasting prison In a passive aggressive life Long is the heal of the wound that must be filled Cutting through the knots left undone May pain be the light of the setting sun (Close your eyes, feel no more) Long fear are stones that we haul Set them down, let them be (Hear thy cries, empty is...) The disciples lost in it's walls Ring an alter that shall never fall (Taste your drops, be no more) Hollow shells with a will not to lead Guide to the temple of the empty (Senses gone, empty is...) Hollow shells with a will not to see Welcome to the temple of the empty
