On the altar of faith

The night’s aflame with fiery lust

a battle rages on for delusions and dust

a crack in the armor, just one more touch

and so the venom seeps in, the guard rusts.

Chambers scream but the echo is silent

moments beating but the soul is dying

the devil armed with all that a-craving

all you had tried to forget once along the way

and so you lay your wreath on the altar of faith.

Demons roaring to be unleashed

Past catching up to lift the seige

conscience creaks, just one more touch

senses numbed, the walls crushed.

Chambers scream but the echo is silent

moments beating but the soul is dying

the devil armed with all that a-craving

all you had tried to forget once along the way

and so you lay your wreath on the altar of faith.

But you fight for what you don’t see best

all conscience buried and put to rest

life’s now but a waning fest

in the name of devil to dance and rein again

as you lay your wreath on the altar of faith.
