Oh dear lord, spare me from this misery,
For all the miseries you have put me through
Seems paltry before this affliction
I find no strength in any Holy Scripture or rosary.
My life seeks no more, all my hopes are far gone
The poison of revenge is seeping through my veins
But faith in God is all that remains
This world pleases me no more,
This world has nothing to offer me anymore.
This despised war for power and supremacy
Has taken away enough lives and souls
Has pitted brother against brother,
Has burned this heaven into ashes,
And all this for – Salvation, killing one’s own
For a spot next to the Lord – funny or foolish you may call
A joke indeed, a joke of the lives of people, a joke of a faith
People around here are not people anymore but mere wraith
The nights I slaved, the seas I braved, the life I craved
All has come to this very moment, washed up
He lay as innocent as he ever was, waiting to be woken up
But only to wake up somewhere else away from us.
Oh dear lord, as I hold the cold lifeless body of my child
In your holy shrine, show me your kingdom
Show me the kingdom you said that you built here
Show me the love you speaketh of, show me the compassion you believe in
For all I see around me is hate, anger, greed and lust.
For all I see around me is fire, blood and tears
For all I see around me is not love or hope
But evil seeds of revenge and angst.
Oh dear lord spare me from this misery.
Spare me from this despised heaven.
