lyrics

Once we stood
On the shore of the living
Now she drifts away
Out of my reach
Afloat on her ocean of slumber

Awakened to pleas of despair
A bargain born of grief
You would commit all you are
Body and soul
To buy her release
Deliver yourself to me, she shall be free
If you hope to follow her, be warned
I grant no return

Light fades away and all is grey
As instinct is denied
The river flows with him in tow
Obey the mortal tide
Submerged, he lay, his thoughts decay
The current pulling strong
No sense of time, just death sublime
The waking world is gone

Through torrents of biting rain
Embracing the deep
Into the maelstrom of pain
Beneath waves of eternal sleep

Eyes open, surface now
Stand in the shallows beyond the real
She’s waiting
The river flows
It draws below

Through the mists ahead her soul is shining still
In the half-light of perdition’s chill
You resolve to follow, death defied
Face the current, betray the tide

The water stills
A sudden chill

Ascending from the water
You will know my strength
Your deceit lies in ruins
I claim you

Through torrents of biting rain
Embraced by the deep
Into the maelstrom of pain
Beneath waves of eternal sleep
