I Left My Beloved

My beloved is alone in the strange place of theirs
I left my beloved in the darkest of places
From where you can hardly see the road
The forest: maze, cage
All the beasts and games
I left my beloved in the strangest place of theirs

I had been there all alone
I mingled with the beast and won their games
It is different since my days
They changed the rules, they changed the games
I left my beloved in the strangest place of theirs

Beasts are stronger than ever,
Cruel smirk on their face as the blood of their last prey drips down their chin
There are dreams and ambitions, dreams and ambitions on the way
And at the end of the lane, it was the primrose path
But it is the darkest of places

Battles are not new
I would replace her the frontline if I could
I would be the vanguard if they let me
I wanted to go with her at least
There were dreams and ambitions, dreams and ambitions on my way
I left my beloved in the strangest place of theirs
