I shall never surrender

How could I cease to recall?

I am the only one left to be this alone

As each day passes by

I celebrate one less to live on this way without you

Mirror breaks, but who's in there

And I can't look long

I won't find you there

Because

She calls to me in my...

Broken dreams are the way we shall live

And through darkened hallways, I pass all I've lived for

Paintings line the walls and

Take me back to the times when lucidity reigned

But how do I return?

Blind to everything here

I lose vision of all that remains all around

As I lose that as well

Innocence captured here in time

Echoes of the past

Pleading me to stop

And yet...

She calls to me in my...

Broken dreams are the way we shall live

And through darkened hallways, I pass all I've lived for

Alone in this world as I stand in the night falling

Deeper from where I thought that I had hit bottom

Plead on my knees so I may breath my last breathe which sets me free

Scream to the seas so that I may drown deep within their depths and cease to be

With your untimely end, I am reborn

In this world of hate for those who have what they love

How long must I remain with this corrupted soul

Crying tears of blood

Until empty, I fall

Long hallways keep them from my mind

Hidden

No one sees through the barriers

Only

She calls to me in my…

Broken dreams are the way we shall live

And through darkened hallways, I pass all I’ve lived for

Alone in this world as I stand in the night falling

Deeper from where I thought that I had hit bottom

Return to me, my strength

My soul still perseveres onward

You reach for my hand

And then pull me away from this

The sun feels as I remembered that day

As the light healed this withering canvas

Yearning to be free

But not to be lost

I came here reluctantly

But knew I belonged

How had I fallen so far?

    General CommentThis is an incredible song with such moving lyrics. It blows my mind to this day that this band never received the break it surely deserved.

    This song is essentially summed up by it's title. A threnody is a song or hymn of mourning composed or performed as a memorial to a dead person. The person is mourning the loss of their soul mate and they can no longer find any real meaning in life.

    Lines like "As each day passes by celebrate one less to live on this way without you", "She calls to me in my... Broken dreams...", and "You reach for my hand and then pull me away from this " indicates that he feels that she is reaching out to him from beyond the grave and he longs to join her.

    "In this world of hate for those who have what they love" indicates a despite for people that still have their loved ones.

    Such a sad, yet wonderful song.
