Faith in Others

Album: Pale Communion (2014)

  • The grave of our youth is up ahead
    And life has become a burden
    We move in circles of suppressed despair
    Waiting for the sun
    And turning stones to find evidence
    But it hides in the recesses of our hearts

    A written decree of our loss
    And we carried no faith in the cross
    And the cold years are coming
    For the victims of a longing

    Out through the doors of starvation
    And into the rains of damnation
    Where the bitter winds are singing
    For the victims of a longing

    We carried along through squalor
    With an inborn need to dominate and possess
    It gives birth to an anger inside
    And we can't control this
    The blood of departure in our tracks
    Dripping from our emptying vessels
    Your hand reached out to hold mine
    But you're grasping melting ice

    Asleep in the rain
    A child once again
    And the ghost in my head
    Has forgiven me

    Lifted his curse upon me Writer/s: MIKAEL LARS AKERFELDT
