the great disappointment

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. the great disappointment

i can remember a place i used to go.
chyrsanthemums of white:
they seemed so beautiful.
i can remember;
i searched for the amaranth.
i'd shut my eyes to see...

oh, how i smiled then, so near the cherished ones;
i knew they would appear - saw not a single one.
oh, how i smiled then, waiting so patiently;
i'd make a wish... and bleed.

while i waited, i was wasting away.
while i waited, i was wasting away.

i can remember: dreamt them so vividly,
soft creatures draped in white,
light kisses gracing me.
i can remember when i first realized
dreams were the only place to see them.

while i waited, i was wasting away.
while i waited, i was wasting away.
wihle i waited, i was wasting away.
hope was wasting away;
faith was wasting away...
i was wasting away.

i never, never wanted this;
i always wanted to believe.
i never, never wanted this;
how could i have become?
i never, never wanted this;
but from the start, i'd been deceived.
i never, never wanted this;
how could i have become?

inside a crumbling effigy,
but you promised...
so dies all innocence,
but you promised me.
