Oh, you were born with the sun.
And oh, you will die with the moon.
And everything you thought you had you lost,
But now you’d never lose what you don’t have.

Prayers from above never answered quite enough,
Now the only one you have is you.

With this strewn, bitter heart,
You were calling in love,
Left her naked in the sun.
Run scared from this cruel, bitter world,
This has only begun.
Now the bombs are bursting off.

Smoke arose on Asmyth (name?) glares,
By this blue and frigid winter air.
Where families’ sons are robbed beneath their feet,
In heart’s conceit and ….. (name?), the angel sings,
Said Astras (name?), our eyes to the sea,
We thought that we had a cause for suffering
In reason enough to die alone.

Oh, by you with this strewn, bitter heart,
You were calling in love,
Left her naked in the sun.
Run scared from this cruel, bitter world,
This has only begun.
Now the bombs are bursting off.

Prayers from above never answered quite enough,
Now the only one you have is you.

    My OpinionI'm not sure about some of these lyrics being correct. I don't know some of them all myself. However, I feel pretty confident that He's saying "bodies brew in frigid winter air" in stead of "by this blue and frigid winter air."

    I love this song. I have the feeling it might be one of my top 3 favorites of the album, and I've only heard 2 songs off of it so far including this one.
