Let me speak, let me spit out my bitterness

Born of grief and nights without sleep and festering flesh

 

you Do have eyes

 

Can you see like mankind sees

 

Why have you soured and curdled me

 

Oh you tireless watcher! what have i done to you

 

That you make everything i dread and everything i fear come true

 

Once i was blessed; i was awaited like the rain

 

Like eyes for the blind, like feet for the lame

 

Kings heard my words, and they sought out my company

 

But now the janitors of shadowland their flick brooms at me

 

Oh you tireless watcher what have i done to you

 

That you make everything i dread and everything i fear come true

 

antagonists: man is the sire of sorrow

 

I've lost all taste for life

 

I'm all complaints

 

Tell me why do you starve the faithful

 

Why do you crucify the saints

 

And you let the wicked prosper

 

You let their children frisk like deer

 

And my loves are dead or dying, or they don't come near

 

we don't despise your chastening

 

God is correcting you

Oh and look who comes to counsel my deep distress

 

Oh, these pompous physicians

 

What carelessness

 

oh all this ranting all this wind

 

Filling our ears with trash

 

Breathtaking ignorance adding insult to injury

 

They come blaming and shaming

evil doer

And shattering me

 

this vain man wishes to seem wise

 

A man born of asses

 

Oh you tireless watcher! what have i done to you

 

That you make everything i dread and everything i fear come true

 

we don't despise your chastening

 

Already on a bed of sighs and screams,

 

And still you torture me with visions

 

You give me terrifying dreams

 

Better i was carried from the womb to straight the grave

 

I see the diggers waiting, they're spadesleaning on their

 

man is the sire of sorrow

 

Sure as the sparks ascend

 

Where is hope you're while wondering what went wrong

 

Why give me light and then this dark without a dawn

evil is sweet in your mouth

 

Hiding under your tongue

 

Show your face

 

what a long fall from grace

 

Help me understand

 

What is the reason for your heavy hand

 

you're stumbling in shadows

 

You have no name now

Was it the sins of my youth

 

What have i done to you

 

That you make everything i dread and everything i fear come true

 

oh your guilt must weigh so greatly

 

Everything i dread and everything i fear come true

 

man is the sire of sorrow

 

Oh you make everything i dread and everything i fear come true
