Forgive Me, But My Heart Gets No Joy In Your Downfall

You have chosen the deceptive and dangerous road of deceit,
The players have to playÖ
The eaters got to eat,
With every step the pavement sticks ever tighter
     to the soles of your feet
But reality is too strong of an opponent to retrieve
    or give in to human demands,
He has destroyed millions upon millions on the waterless beach sand
    in this unforgiving land
I told my eyes not to weep if the flower refuses to bloom,
But my heart is sadÖthe sun is going down soon
There'll be no light from the stars
    or warmth from the moon
Deception has made strong her bars
    and deep her pit
The memory of times you wasted
keeps passing by my eyes as I sit,
My heart keeps taking hits
