Broken Man

Black Water Rising

She watches over me my sadness
I lie asleep within her cold embrace
Heaven help me but there is no reply
I'm falling deeper does anyone hear my cry

She comes upon me like madness
In her shadow where I trip and fall
Lost and beaten a slave to my weakness
I've given into this growing bleakness

Move on move on
Been carrying this weight for far too long
Too long too long
So many years have come and gone
Still here singing the song of a broken man

This wall that manifests before me
Foreboding symbol of intimidation
Overcoming I have nothing to lose
But fear and anguish this is the path I choose
