*growl*

A dead mother's eyes
transfixed in endless sorrow.
Hard times to bury a son,
some say will we live on.
Hope fills the depths of their hearts.
Of blind faith, I surely am not.

*pre*
These passing years have stolen my smile.
My reflection a stranger.
*/pre*

Behind the attic door,
between the silhouettes,
the wet kiss of death in the night-time mist.
Upon the autumn leaves,
your words are carried to me.
I know it kills you that my own hands set me free.

*preII*
These passing years have stolen my time. (My time)
My reflection a stranger. (Reflection a stranger)
This young shell harbored an old man. (Why try?)
Set me free from this nightmare.
*/pre II*

*chorus*
It's over now.
Rest your head awhile.
The fear
is the illusion of darkness.
Death is not the end!
*/chorus*

Inside decaying eyes,
My murdered spirit lies.
My body burns with the glow of a funeral pyre.
Procession gathered 'round,
I never heard a sound.
Ash to the wind.
Never underground.

*pre II*
These passing years have stolen my time. (My time)
My reflection a stranger. (Reflection a stranger)
This young shell harbored an old man. (Why try?)
Set me free from this nightmare.
*/pre II*

*chorus*
It's over now.
Rest your head awhile.
The fear
is the illusion of darkness.
Death is not the end!
*/chorus*

Death is not the end!

Burn my flesh off this rotting shell.
Grind my bones into dust and ash.
Send my soul to oblivion.
Erase these hollow, fucking years.
Cleanse yourself from my putrid life.
Become my ghost and kill yourself.
Kill yourself!
Kill Yourself!

*solo*

*chorus*
It's over now.
(It's over now.)
Rest your head awhile.
(Rest your head awhile.)
The fear
is the illusion of darkness.
Death is not the end!
*/chorus*

Do not falter.
Pull the trigger.
Absolve your wretched existence.

    General Commentwhy is it that no one has heard of this band!? open your eyes to the underground people

    anyway this song is pretty straightforward its about living in your own hell and death could only bring improvement

    if you read between the lines its actually very encouraging
