Sin’s Darkfold

Man’s fallen state has led us to many mistakes that take us far from the nature way we were meant to be like.  Because of this, many hear the call of sin like a siren’s song.  It’s been that way since the Garden of Eden…

Tale of Seven Sins - Drink To Me Only With Thy Eyes

Sin's Darkfold
by Michael Romani

Oh, woeful it is for we, humanity
That despite our prideful vanity
We are caught in sin's dark fold
While like puppets we are led and we are told
Busily thinking this is in some way and somehow 
Our betterment taking us from once then into now
That somehow this makes us more happier and free
To follow the dark ways of our greatest adversary

We have fallen from the dream that was Eden's glory
And we dreamers cannot remember the story
Lost plot lines turned into emotional landmines
Taking care to be weary of the silent mimes
Who insist that they see no evil, hear no evil
And don't even mildly protest least they speak evil
But when the good fail to act at all, evil prevails
So it is in our morality plays and cautionary tales

he time has come to dream again and arise
Rubbing the sleep from our chronically tired eyes
Unafraid to embrace the fantastic of our lives
Slicing through all the hazy layers with our knives
Spreading thin the metaphors that dig deep
Down by the slipstreams where even willows weep
For these things are the base of forgotten dreams
Marking them down as we live out our best it seems
