O fond remembrance of the past That cannot last, that cannot last
Instead, the bitter deeds you brought to nullify all other thought
What bids you come into my mind? When I had put you far behind
So sure was I of finished quest, in which I laid you to your rest
If t'were mere flashbacks I'd not complain
but your visits are soul attacks that cause me pain
And what about the happy parts? you keep them hid
You return to me with things I wish I never did.
Why is there only doom and gloom, without laughter and light
I know I watched the flowers bloom, and that didn't happen at night
And why reveal just the sin, when I know there was grace
Yes, evil almost did me in, but good gave me embrace
It seems that you hold all the keys, there is no hope for me
Unless I find an antidote, that will set me free
I've already tried the fruit of the vine
which puts a glow on for a time
Other drugs used to lessen the regret
wake you with your head and guts playing Russian roulette.
I have come to the end of this useless drama
I will take the advice of my dear Mama
The only answer for a nightmare
is to "Get on ones knees in prayer."
