This was the first Song written by Antiquity, but not the original recording.


It's the face of destiny, This motherless child
A gentle little alibi, A leopard on a leash
I hear it in your voice, This silly little shrine
You see its like this, For the ones that I love
You feel it it like this, For the one that I hurt

As I rise from my bed in the heat of the night
Take it out on the man for sure
To the ones that I love, To the ones that I hurt
Blaming heaven and mother and earth
As I rise from my bed in the dark of the night
Twenty years in this eight by four
To the ones that I love, To the one that I hurt
Blaming heaven and mother and earth

It's in the wind of change, This thought alone
The bitter sweet of my hate, A life that's spent
As I reach for the night, It's all that I have
You see it's like this, The world through my eyes
You feel it like this, The pain in my heart
