Iíd been living the aftermath  
Of your so-called love  

The sublime liberation  
I always dreamed of  

Is a hilltop paradise  
Reassemblage of the pieces left behind.  

You tore through my walls,  
A twister reaching landfall  

Divine retribution I reckon  
For some past life unlearned lesson  

Thatís the only way  
I can rationalize this disarray.  

Even so, I cannot disgrace  
The child whose body you defaced  

Judgement is on the way  
A force so heavy you canít escape  

For my own sake I forgave  
But now a torrent is headed your way. †
