Valley of Lead

Cold wandering
Dust that obscures my eyes
No reaching for 
the walls that can't hold me up
The wind blows through 
my fingers
Nothing but the road ahead
I've walked as long as I know
 
An endless chill that grips me
Invisible hands clutch my throat
Desperation need not end me
So why do I follow to the void?
 
Imprison me
Lead me to the edge
Say no prayers for me
Leave me in the wastes
In the valley of lead
 
Imprison me
Safe among the strays
Nothing said for me
I crawl amongst the shunned
In the valley of lead
 
Graying skies overhead
A sign from the masters 
The stars are hiding nothing
And they don't shine here anyway
The words drawn out in spells
For our sorrows laid to rest
The facade that we still exist
 
An endless thought that consumes me
Invisible hands that hold me down
Desperation need not end me
So why do I lead them to the void?
 
Imprison me
Lead me to the edge
Say no prayers for me
Then leave me in the wastes
In the valley of lead
 
Imprison me
Safe among the strays
No words are said for me
I crawl amongst the shunned
In the valley of lead
 
Captured
Motionless
Diseased in the place where hopes die
Can't bury me
Where the earth won't move
The desert wind
Will carry me away
Carry me away
