3rd track on the album 'MOK


Alas – The illness comes again
Slumber is no use rest pointless…

I simply toss and turn –
Grow tired and sick – Disgusting distress…

My soul again prepares for
This slow and silent death
And my once sharp senses
Become duller daily

And oh – This gut wrenching
nauseating sorrow…

Persistence of time never ceases
To haunt – My lust for life grows dim
Fleeting memories – Distant past
Well, there was life and love there

We were not afraid then
Now dreadfully old and all alone
We’re where we always wanted
We’re where we never wanted…

And oh – This gut wrenching,
nauseating sorrow…

We love to hate to be alone
Tell me – Will time never pass?
and it passes – And each day…
Each hour’s more burdensome…

So I beg you – Will time never cease?
Oh, dear god, will time ever cease?
But we still have our youth…
Oh we still have our youth…

And oh – This gut wrenching, nauseating sorrow…
