> PATH OF DESTRUCTION

You built my shelter
And gave me light in the darkness
You gave me food and water
And guided me through evolution
You gave me knowledge
And not just thoughts, but also dreams
I dreamt of cities
As far as the eye could see

But I built weapons
To defend me from my brothers
But I built warships
To strike them back with hate
I let the darkness
Corrupt the soul you gave me
And in this darkness
I burned your shelter down

Now I say I don't believe
In your existence
When you left me
I locked you out of my heart
I say that I don't need you
I will manage on my own
Even though I have you to thank
That I'm alive

One day you will return
And shine your light once more
And perhaps then I
Will see the truth again
But for now the house you built
Is burnt to a cinder
And I will take it upon me
To build it up again

I went down
A path of destruction
I couldn't see the damage that was done
I went down
A path of destruction
And you turned your light away from me

I went down
A path of destruction
I regret the damage that was done
I went down
A path of destruction
Please don't turn your light away from me
