lyrics

The dusk descends like a crimson veil upon me
Green leaves loose their colour as the night
Grows deeper and darker every passing moment
And with dawn, nothing will be the same

I feel the cuts as if it had been me
The pain is stronger I could ever know
I hear the screams inside my head
I see their smiles but can't interfere

She did see the lust in their eyes
But could not realize
They wanted to taste her fear
Now she lays covered in her own blood

Through the catacombs under this burned ground
Among the withering leaves of life I gather
My remaining strength and I shalt prevail
Let them taste the fear and the pain
I was forced to endure

And as I fell into darkness fury filled my mind
And as they fell broken and torn the blood stained the memory

Who would have known I could wield such force
To tear down an entire house stained with shame

This truth could only be revealed by violence
And so their screams broke down the terrible wall of silence

A sudden realization what I had committed
My whole world burned into ashes, torn to pieces
What ill fate brought this misfortune upon me
And then I understand, that fool was no one but me

I see mirrors laughing, the walls are closing in
This nightmare in which I am dwelling slowly, steadily awakes me
Illusions fade, hopes, dreams crumble

The dying echo of these empty words
The dying ego of this empty corpse
Imitating and mocking emotions I myself laid in grave
So much pain, so much pain, caused again and again

Oh why I am here
Left alone under the marks of ancient wisdom and splendor
No place to hide from the one who took it all away
No forgiveness nor salvation for the wicked soul I carry inside

feel older than the trees themselves
That have seen more I will see
Tempted to drown myself among these leaves
May they bury me with their gentle sleep

This act was purely selfish
I wonder if anyone will ever even know what happened here
For what lies behind the veil of misty morning
We all see in a different light
