lyrics

Close your eyes. Don't expect a reason, just drink the wine and pray that your soul's to find the vines wreathed around the fear that keeps me paralyzed. Soon, be my own device, a gentle host. Build the walls and lay your faults in me, the ghost haunting the emptiness of those hollow thoughts that never talk yet bring and boast a cup that will never flow.

Summer’s gone; the leaves have fallen. They die like breath caught in the throat of winter. All the lies, the lords, the flies – they coalesce, haunt the bones and live again.

Round my head there may be a halo but round my neck the rope has begun to burrow in and suffocate. The paths to take – the will is gone, surrendered to the unknown.

Summer’s gone; the leaves have fallen. They die like breath caught in the throat of winter. All the lies, the lords, the flies – they coalesce, haunt the bones and live again.

Woeful tears, numbed in the wake of wintertide, burn the fear – hold the fire, rise from rime! Called alive, curse the sky! Called alive – the fall, divined!

Reach for a setting sun slowly sinking in the fire; take my place among these leaves scorned. Skies fall – the autumn of days! Tears turn to ash on your face. Still, they can't take me from you.
