"Bless The Child" lyrics

Bless The Child

"I was born amidst the purple waterfalls
I was weak, yet not unblessed
Dead to the world
Alive for the journey
One night I dreamt
A white rose withering
A newborn drowning
A lifetime loneliness
I dreamt all my future
Relived my past
A witnessed the beauty of the beast"

Where have all the feelings gone?
Why has all the laughter ceased?

Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child

How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?

Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child
Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time

I've never felt so alone in my life
As I drank from a cup
Which was counting my time
There's a poison drop in this cup of Man
To drink it is to follow the left hand path

Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child
Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time

Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time

"Where have all the feelings gone?
Why is the deadliest sin
To love as I loved you?
Now unblessed, homesick in time
Soon to be freed from care
From human pain
My tale is the most bitter truth
Time pays us
But with earth & dust
And a dark, silent grave
Remember, my child
Without innocence the cross is only iron
Hope is only an illusion
And Ocean Soul's nothing but a name
The Child bless thee & keep thee forever"
