Jericho (Moving Closer)

On the side of the road to Jericho
 Beaten and broken, left to perish alone
 Empty heart with no will left to beat
 Starving, parched, and deprived of sleep
 Passerby turn their heads away
 Can’t be bothered to help or troubled to stay
 There is only one thing left to do
 Submit to the pain and the void that ensues

Can you see the light?
 It’s moving closer…
 Not from without
 but from the inner depths of thee
 No angels guiding
 No help is coming
 Now is the time
 to rise and meet your destiny
