PostSubject: My soul for theirs...   Sun Nov 16, 2014 2:27 am

I met this woman named Pandora, stunning and cunning like a fox

She had all six of my children locked away inside a box

I read a sign upon the box as my children screamed "Daddy, help us"

The language of the dead: "Relinque spes, omnibus introeuntibus..."


"Abandon hope, all ye who enter here..."

and my soul felt every fear...of every child's tear

The feeling I was feeling in my heart tore me apart

Pandora started wheeling and dealing right from the very start

She offered their release if I would be willing to make a trade


My soul for theirs...that was the deal Pandora made


and even though there was a time when I didn't have the time


and I was dying in the world living a dead-man's rhyme


yesterday has gone away, today is where I stand


and so I made a stand and I reached out and shook her hand


No sooner did I do this that I truly realized


Pandora was the devil...cleverly disguised


The devil reveled in laughter after the deal was done


but then he let all of my children go...one by one


Each one waved goodbye and they were crying as I fell


but I knew none of them could handle all the tortures of hell


I am built for...I've become numb to...the chains and pains of being bound


and no greater sound can be found than that of children running 'round


In exchange for my six, that the Lord shall save their names


I feel the never-ending pain as I am lowered to the flames


Just then I saw the devil tremble as I heard the voice of heaven


"I am a jealous God...and I am keeping all seven"


"My love is unconditional, it is forgiving, it is whole"


"Never make deals with the devil, child...you almost...lost...your soul..."
