Loathsome I've become.
A creature so undone.
Wretched and broken.
Cannot find my faith.
Any God will do.
Nothing said is new.
Nothing said is true.
Fly away my hope.

The embrace of shade holds me dear
Eats me away.
Loose the dogs of disgrace upon me.
I have no faith.
Raise the poor outcast I have become.
I am undone.
Calm is the air. Still is the sea.
The valley of death keeps calling me.

Rest my eyes from the world.
This dying place, it's so absurd.
Oh, Christ above, whom I love.
Lost to me. My snow white dove.
Make this day like the night.
songs of darnkess. Words of light.
Pulling down my heart.
I won't forget my lovers heart.

With utter loathing and scorn,
I was somehow born.
Strewn in black decay.
None shall I obey.
The wreckage of my flesh
The nakedness of my death.

    General CommentI don't really like this lyric much at all. It's kind of MDB-by-numbers. I mean, rhyming "heart" with "heart". come on!

    And where the hell are these "words of light"?

    General CommentI really like this song alot, although I have to agree with that "heart" part. It feels like the lyrics are written for the music, not the other way around.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs.
    A true art piece if you ask me.

    Its pretty obious about what it tells.
    About the misory of a person. And about no will to live.
    The lyrics are done to fit the music. Its truly great work.

    General CommentI believe this song is about a man in his last minutes of life. He has given up all hope, and is waiting to die.

    i think its about the extreme confusion that some people experience after abandoning thier faith,it expresses that feeling of being completely lost and unbelonging to certain group and ideology
