Somber is my mind
now that misfortune has
faced my kind
Weary glazed stare
beneath the pitch-black hair

On my cheeks
once so alive
Adorn flood of tears
caused by strife
And as I grieve
under the sky
Even raven croaks me
it's despise

My warm hand
against your cold palm
Words echoing in the air
though your gone...

Somber is my mind
black is the colour I feel
These completely dead emotions
drain the last bit of me
No matter how many tears I shed
no matter how much I repent
Some things just can't be undone
and some of us can't be forgiven

No matter how many tears I shed
some things can't be undone...

I've reached the point
of no return
There are deeds from which
I cannot flee
From a reflection I see a tired man
longing for a relief
The black waters in front of me
will sway me 'till I'm in sleep
Carry me to the shores of Manala
where I'll be free from my sins

The black waters will sway me
'till I'm in sleep...
This roaring stream will wash me
pure and clean...

No matter how many tears I shed
some of us can't be forgiven...

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who has killed someone and feel strong guilt afterwards. No matter how much he regrets it, it won't be undone.
    Now he waits for death and a chance to pay for his sins.

    Manala is the realm of the dead in old finnish mythology.
