Forever our tender hearts passion dare
A cross to attest to our sacrifice
I had a dream and woke to a nightmare

Betrayed by trusted confidant – thrice
Friends’ cold shoulders like a thorny barb
A cross to attest to our sacrifice

Sackcloth and ashes, our suitable garb
Too proud to explain the situation
Friends’ cold shoulders like a thorny barb

To Bacchus the symbolic libation
Drowning out perceived reality
Too proud to explain the situation

Awakening latent creativity
Like doves circling in a darkening sky
Drowning out perceived reality

Many bloodless wounds our souls decry
Forever our tender hearts passion dare
Like doves circling in a darkening sky
I had a dream and woke to a nightmare
