Desolate, I stay in bed,
Streams of tears flow from my eyes.
Weakened, I am vulnerable
To the master of deceit and lies.
He plays upon my deepest fears
Telling me I don’t belong.
Tightening his evil grip,
Hypnotizing with his song.
The words he whispers tantalize,
Saying he’ll relieve my pain.
Flustering my weary mind
As my life spins down the drain.
Ashamed, I hide in my despair;
Falling for his ruthless guise.
Tormented in solitude
By the master of deceit and lies.
I suffer through my worthless days,
Depression I can’t comprehend.
Struggling with my somber thoughts,
Hoping this sad life will end.
But in pictures on the wall,
Reflections from times long ago
Through a child’s eye life was grand.
A feeling I no longer know.
Confusion overwhelms my soul.
Staring helpless toward the skies,
Fearing I cannot escape
From the master of deceit and lies.
I contemplate surrendering,
Beaten in this desperate fight.
Hoping there is more for me,
Looking for a ray of light.
Yearning for a better life,
I wonder why I even care.
Knowing somehow I must change
Whimpering a silent prayer,
“Please Dear Lord, I beg of you.
Do you hear my mournful cries?
Save me with your boundless love
From the master of deceit and lies.”
