lyrics

This is my day of severing, of salvation in my yielding. Before lands drained of green, I set forth into the cold...

For I have spent half a lifetime asleep in the embrace of night. For her shadows they loved me, in dreams of her elusive light. The rapture they visit in darkness, belies truth that burns in the sun. Never closer than arms’ length... O, her shadows...

O, her shadows!

So I awoke, with eyes awash in silent white, to a flame that burned on defiant. And how could I blame them, for the apathy that I saw in their wake?

And I still did burn, over and over unto her fire. Nursed it along through my travels, through fields of pestilent dismay. Through the melting of my sinews, for her warmth, so distant and so frail...

To yet another man... to yet another muse in requiem...

And in her throes of dying, the Muse spoke unto me: “End this now, for only ever my shadows had any love for thee!”

So with this knife, I deign to cut all the life out of me. So with this knife, I deign to cut all the love out of me. This is my day of severing, of salvation in my yielding.

With a heart drained of hope, I set forth into the cold...
