There is a place which humans call hell.
In that darkness evil does dwell.
All alone, lost in shame.
A childs fallen down in pain.
Trapped within the eternal night.
He searches vainly for the light
Finally he's reached a mountain of sin
To reach the top, a spot in heven he'll win.
Now to begin his long lonely climb.
Hopefully he'll reach the top in time
Treking through eveny and greed.
The child spots a shimmer, a gleam.
Reaching foward, towards the shimmering flicker.
It shatters with a snide snicker.
Pushing past gluttony and sloth.
There comes a form of a man of cloth.
He smiles so sweetly, his arms open wide.
But something is wrong, something he hides.
One step foward, one step back.
Then the devil begins his attack.
Why do you fight when you know'll fail.
You'll never ever escape from this hell.
Forever bound in this fiery pit.
This is what the faiths have knit.
Give up now, your a child of dammed.
Never to be part of gods great plan
Time ticked forever on a shattered clock
The child stood still on razor sharp rocks.
Pushing back pain, holding back dismay.
The devils words were held at bay.
Stumbling up the mountainous rock.
Times running out on the shattered clock.
Struggling through lust, wading through pride.
A whip falls down on the childs soft hide.
Crying out, falling down.
He's gone to far to back out now.
Crawling upwards on his hands and knees.
His broken body begins to bleed.
Very faintly he see's a light.
Inching foward, he contuines the fight.
Finally reaching the last seventh of sin.
The child realizes he's about to win.
Now to rush through angers tide.
Maybe he'll make it through alive
After defeating all seven of sins.
The child knows he's going to win.
Crawling foward to heavens gate.
The child waits to see his fate.
Tears fall down from his blinded eyes.
As heavenly voices fill the sky.
And finally he's brought back to the promised land.
Finallys he's held, by gods loving hands.
