At Heavens Gate

Candice – Ashes of Eden

When you first met me you thought I was a boy

And this is how I wanted you to see me

A permanent resident on the corner of fear and loathing

An echo of the person I used to be


19 years old, alone and afraid

I succumb to the call of the Night Lark

Her melody a symphony within my veins

The person in the mirror a stark


Reminder of fading memories

Their faces all fading into black

Mother, Father, Heroine and Hunger

The craving a reminder of the fact


That I’m this girl from there now living nowhere

Spat on and spurned like a heathen

Look into my eyes and see the dim glow

Of the embers in the ashes of Eden
