Please save my wretched soul
Rid me of this disease
Take me to the bend of hope
Where I shall fall on my hands and knees

Cure me of my insolence
Cleanse me of my dreams
Take me from my safety
And place my heart where it redeems

Set my spirit free
Clear from all sin
Raid all evil from each pore
Just for me to go back in

------- Author's Notes -------

This is how I see myself in purification. Perhaps I was just meant to be as evil as what was meant of me. For nothing is more pure and cruel than a child...
