The Shell

stayed hiding myself within the shell
keeping me safe from the earthly hell

know not how to see the world around
the chaos and the formidable sound

the whining of the apocalypse horses
the agony of the souls pleading voices

i bare not to hear them wiping anymore
within my thickened shell i bare no more

confusions devoured this whole being
as my thoughts never leave me pondering

closed my eyes submitting myself to darkness
embracing my own world in deep hollowness

in my long sleep behind my protective wall
i will be awakened to remain standing tall

stretching and reaching out for the gap
the breaking through of a soul will never stop

only to regain strength to fight and not fail
and to the world, the courage that tells the tale
