lyrics

Awakened in this fever dream
You stand
Oh mother, the light of your soul has been dimmed
It shrinks as I reach out my hand

What has become of your smile?
Your laugh?
Pray tell me was it a mask that you wore?
A role that you played?

Haunted eyes
Haunted heart
No longer can you hide the damage inside
A house of lies

All the love that you gave
Yet time has not returned
All the hurt you carried inside
All the love that you craved
And the weight of life you bore
As time so cruelly leaves you a shell
The hands of fate
Have left you, now, a wraith

There was but one
Who understood
Who made it right
Who made you strong
He’s been gone for so long
And all your tears
Across the years
They took their toll
Each carried a piece of your soul

All the love that you gave
Yet time has not returned
All the hurt you carried inside
All the love that you craved
And the weight of life you bore
As time so cruelly leaves you a shell
The hands of fate
A loss so great
Have left you, now, a wraith

On the precipice you stand
And though I scream you cannot hear me
I have failed you
You hurtle to the void
And though I strain I cannot reach you
I have lost you
No, no the years took their toll
On mind and soul
Life has killed you
Soar, soar
From your prison go forth
You feel pain no more
You are free now, You are free now, You are free now

How many dawns she has suffered
In dusk’s fading light she would pray
That he’d soon be there, arms awaiting
And she’d be at peace on that day

Go release your pain
Go release your pain
Go release your pain
Go release your pain

"There is an almost 'Wall of Sound' created by textured guitars and vocals. Definitely a dark and doomy vibe throughout."
