Absolution Gap
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


I have lived for far too long
Longer than time should allow me
I am a creature of sin
An abomination on our kind

I have taken far too many lives
I have lived a far too selfish life
Let me find a way to redeem myself
Let me find my absolution

SOLO

Absolve me, Please
This is all I ask
Let my past be shadowed
By the actions of the present
I don't care If I recieve heaven
Or if im damned to hell
Just let me feel at peace
Absolve me, Please

I have to die before I can live
I have to give up my human self
I must become something more

Submit myself to an onset of diease
Let the plague consume me
Becoming one with its existence

I have extended myself to a hideous entity
But I must become what I despise
Before I can apprecitate what I am

I have made an oath to become
There ark for redemption
There ark for a new existence

Absolve me, Please
This is all I ask
Let my past be shadowed
By the actions of the present
I don't care If I live
Don't really see why I should
Just let me feel at peace
Absolve me, Please

I don't care
If I live through this
Just as long as they
See another day

Put the worlds weight on me
Put all lifes burden on my shoulders
I dont care If it crushes me
Let me die with some peace of mind

SOLO

In the wake of my actions
I feel a certain reassurance
That I have done something worthy
Saved something worth saving

My shoulders begin to break under pressure
My time in this world is done
Just before I am crushed with the worlds burden
I can manage one last smile...

...Of serenity

This one is about a man who has become so ashamed of what he has done in his life, He seeks some ultimate form of absolution. This is based off a character in the books Revelation Space, Redemtion Ark, and Absolution Gap. Without divulging too much (It will just confuse you if you havnet read the books), He becomes something hideous, But something that ultimately is the single tool that saves the live of hundreds of thousands of people, In spending his life entire life taking on these peoples burdens inside himself, he can finally be allowed a certain degree of peace before he dies.

I like it. Songs about remorse and self... "imaging"(?) grip me.
Something tells me that this isn't a ballad? tongue.gif

I haven't heard of those books, but I'll check them out as well (and I'll pretend like you didn't spoil the ending laugh.gif )

Its actually doesn't, Not even close. Those books have so many things goin in them, It would take 10 or 20 songs to ruin the ending laugh.gif

But if you like Sci-Fi/ Space Opera's, then there the books for you smile.gif
