Condemned

Around her neck the sadness of the years
Hangs heavy like the darkness of the night
Alas my lady weeps a lake of tears

Succumbing to the greatest of her fears
She sees there is an ending to her light
Around her neck the sadness of the years

The time for final reckoning appears
As torments put her sanity to flight
Alas my lady weeps a lake of tears

Her madness forms a fog that never clears
She never shall escape the chains of fright
Around her neck the sadness of the years

The haunting sound such cruel injustice hears
The sounds of death are her unending blight
Alas my lady weeps a lake of tears

My final words still ringing in her ears
She struck the blow that doomed me to my plight
Around her neck the sadness of the years
Alas my lady weeps a lake of tears
