It feels as if standing again
In the pouring rain
As I let past's spirits gain
Control over me

And they speak so impatiently
But all I see
Is that I sacrificed myself
For nothing

May this be the last day or night
Before I fade away with a final sigh
My tired eyes have seen enough for a life
So if the time has come to leave it all behind
These wrinkled hands are not too lame
To embrace freedom again

You made me bear
All these memories alone
The void of the unborn son
The pain that you generate

Oh, God is it true that you watch over us all?
Did you weep or just laugh
When seeing my people fall?

Down by the river
And high up in the skies
In those deep valleys
Where their tortured bodies lie
Forgotten

With every monolith that falls
I feel the dying pulse
In the vein
Of my generation

But all the voices I hear they seem so real
Can they make me believe
That you're here with me?
(That you're still with me)

Down by the river
And high up in the skies
In those bleak valleys where my
Broken bones will dry

Forgotten by all
Abandoned by man
To follow the call I'll resist
While I have the strength

As if ever thoughts could melt steel
As if prison walls were to be torn by will
As if ever time could heal the wounds
Inside

As if on the fateful paths I tread
All friends and loves I've ever had
Were still around and not lying dead
Dead like stones
