Lyrics - mid 2022


We once had a choice
Why did you choose pain?

Let your hatred die
Do not let it overtake you
The echoes of razorblade words
Still draw fresh blood

The evil tried to sway me
It promised great vengeance

But why should I offer that darkness,
My most hated scourge,
My loved ones as a sacrifice?
Their blood will not heal my wounds

I know your suffering
I've felt the same sorrow
And by that very knowledge
I can’t allow it to continue

You have left me
Under the chariot of the hidden sun
In the field of clover
As deep as the sea

I would dream of safety
In the green petrichor
In the misty valley
Waiting to be found

May I be the final visitor
Of these sad desolate lands

May the sun shine upon you
May the clover blossoms bloom

May the rains pass
And the valley protect you

I wish you could've felt safe
I wish you were properly loved
You only wished the best for us
I will always love you
