lyrics

I wasn't always like this
Cloaked in despairing thoughts
My mind became a chamber
My wings began to rot

Discoloration set in
The scene began to fade
My own distorted images
Came a galloping my way

But there was a time
When I was good
Now I walk these nights
For something that I lost

Then came the day I met her
And with magik in her belt
She swallowed both of us
That's when I killed myself

My mind became invaded
Her song entrapped my heart
My soul became elated
And my body fell apart

But there was a time
When I was good
Now I walk these nights
For something that I lost

Oh there was a time
When I was good
Now I walk these nights
For something that I lost

I wasn't always like this
I wasn't always like this
I wasn't always like this
God knows! I wasn't always like this

This lullaby I sing for the lost ones

This lullaby I sing for the broken

This lullaby I couldn't sing when I was good
I couldn't sing when I was good
I couldn't sing when I was good
When I was good!

Discoloration set in
The scene began to fade
My own distorted images
Came a galloping my way

But there was a time when I was good
Oh there was a time when I was good
I remember the time when I was good
I can think of a time when I was good!
