Forfeit (2006)

Lyrics

This fever won't break, and my body is breaking
On the inside I ache as this fear robs my sanity

Trapped in this place
I am weak
I am subject to my extravagant nightmares and this pessimist's toil
Have I really lost it all?

I see it now
I see the beauty I forfeit
I feel it now
How could I turn my back on all I was longing for?

How long will this take? Should I fight? Should I wait?
My God, help me cope
For her sake
In the wake of contingent events
Bringing the final fate in face of the fool
When I've found I've lost it all

I see it now
I see the beauty I forfeit
I feel it now
How could I turn my back on all I was longing for?

I find it so hard to receive when times change like shifting sand
But if I refuse to believe it's true I'll be buried within it
My soul screams for all to restore
My head thinks he's got it right
My heart bleeds for love from a jewel to return, and all else left behind

I see it now
I see the beauty I forfeit
I feel it now
How could I turn my back on all I was longing for?

I see it now
I see the beauty I forfeit
I feel it now
How could I turn my back on all I was longing for?

This fever won't break, and my body is breaking
On the inside I ache as this fear robs me
