lyrics

What will purge this melancholy
what will draw this poison
what will banish this darkness
what will mend this broken heart

I look to the future
but see only the terrible present
I look to the past
but like love betrayed it has turned rotten
I look to my father
but he is dead
I look to my mother
but she is old and frail
I look to my brothers
but they tell me of the hardness of their lives
I look to my wife
but feel guilt
I look to my son
but see he suffers the pangs of youth
I look to my friends
but they also tell me of the difficulty of life
I look to the doctor
but medicine does not work
I look to the psychologist
but talk is vain
I look to books
but their stories are not mine
I look to faith
but I have no faith

What will purge this melancholy
what will draw this poison
what will banish this darkness
what will mend this broken heart
