The Wilde Flowers

Album: Sorceress (2016)
  • Sun hangs high, I turn away
    Failure underground
    Heart is sick and fever is high
    Waiting for a sound

    Like a trail of insects to me
    I watch them from afar
    Feeding, breeding, scheming
    Tell me I am wrong

    Hiding from discovery
    Staring down into the ground
    Had they seen the posion in me
    A tide of spite wound be found

    Moving faster lingering gaze
    Feasting on my sanity
    A grain of sand against endless waves
    A wish for the slaughter of conformity

    Blinding light as the flames grow higher
    Searing skin on a funeral pyre
    Blinding light as the flames grow higher
    Searing skin on a funeral pyre

    Inside me sleeps a violence waiting to be freed

    Blinding light as the flames grow higher
    Searing skin on a funeral pyre
    Blinding light as the flames grow higher
    Searing skin on a funeral pyre

    Blinding light and the flames grow higher
    Searing skin on a funeral pyre
    Should I speak and they'll call me a liar
    I'll retreat to my funeral pyre

    My sanctuary, a thousand centuries
    I'm not waiting, I'm tired of waiting
    I'm not waiting, I'm tired of waiting
    I'm not waiting, I'm tired of waiting
    I'm not waiting Writer/s: Mikael Akerfeldt
