I was born so warm and gentle,
Into this place so cruel,
I thought that I could change the world,
The world thought me a fool.
I wandered like so many do,
The path a young man takes.
A thousand apples left to bite,
Amid a sea of snakes.
They spoke to me with words like honey,
Fattened me with lies.
We were all just born to sin they said,
We were all just bred to die.
The path I walked had made me weary,
So amongst the snakes I laid,
And amongst the snakes my morals rotted,
In the prison that we made.
I tried so hard to free myself,
Against the shackles cast,
But when the serpents poisoned me,
They set me free at last.
I've grown up so cold and empty,
With mistakes that I must own.
Once my heart was soft and gentle
Now my heart is bone.
