Heaven save me a place with a window,
I'm on my march to the end that remains
I've buried a cold within this heart,
I lost the cure that plagued the start
Oh, my lover I ache

(I guess that I...)

I've done all of these things for you
Stained my soul to bleak refute

(Help us, help us, someone. Help us, help us)

Now wallow in sick and disease
to measure out a man I know I can't be
Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
Please greet them as they graze, goodbye.

Here's my blood, cause' you will accept no other
I've hollowed this heart to hide you within

(I guess that I...)

I'm so sick of these things I do
Worse off, worse off, I blame you

(Help us, help us, someone. Help us, help us)

Now wallow in sick and disease
to measure out a man I know I can't be
Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
Please greet them as they graze, goodbye.

You did all you could but there's nothing left, no, no more after all
Shame you, you know that the secrets kept would one day kill us all

Wallow through sick and disease
to measure out a man I know I can't be
Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
Please greet them as they graze, goodbye.

(Help us, help us, help us)

Now wallow in sick and disease
to measure out a man I know I can't be
Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
Please greet them as they graze, goodbye.

    General CommentI don't think these are very accurate, I guessed the best I can. I couldn't decipher the first verse at all. If anyone can decipher them better, let me know and I'll edit it.

    General Commenthere's what i have for the first verse, any suggestionsare welcome:

    Heaven's fence will be a place for the window
    I'm on my march to the ending you made
    I'm growing cold within this heart,
    I lost the cure and blamed the start of ?

    General CommentI think Bskinffington has it pretty accurate, with a little flaws hear and there.

    Here is what I have for the first verse

    "Heaven's find me a place at the window,
    I'm on my march to the end of me,
    I've buried a cold within this heart,
    I lost the cure that plagued the start, Oh, My lover I ache. (I can't stand by)"

    What do you guys think?

    Anyone else hear he "(help us, help us survive)" in the background?

    General CommentAt first I thought you had the wrong song... Mainly because you missed the entire intro.

    General CommentA few corrections.

    Heaven save me a place with a window,
    I'm on my march to the end of me,
    I've buried a cold within this heart,
    I lost the cure that plagued the start
    Oh, My lover I ache.

    Honestly i have no idea how anyone heard anything but "Heaven Save me a place with a window"

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now wallow in sick and disease
    to measure out a man I know I can't be
    Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
    Please greet them as they graze, goodbye.

    Remember, the song is called The Lost Shepherd. "Please greet them as they graze, goodbye." If you actually listen to the HQ album version, there is a G sound where you put "wave". It has a very distinct G sound. Could be Grave but then again that makes really no sense. So seeing as the song is about a "Shepherd", Graze makes more sense to me and remembering Claudio Sanchez's singing style, it would seem a lot more correct. Try singing it. Also how does "Please" sound like "You'll"?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You did all you could but there's nothing left, no, no more after all
    Shame you, you know that the secrets kept would one day kill us all.

    Added a "no" and fixed the wrong lyric. Can't figure out how "after all" sounded like "for you"

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Of course this is in all due respect, my corrections I am pretty sure will end editing. And like i said, try singing it with my corrections.

    General CommentOh, i just noticed, listening to the song again i forgot a correction.

    I've done all of these things for you
    Stained my soul to bleak refute.

    Re-reading the lyrics, noticed the K sound at the end of your "Bleed" and the only thing i could think and hear was "Bleak" then the word after that, i thought and hear "Refute". Listen to them, sing my corrections. Try them out for yourself.

    General CommentNow wallow in sick and disease
    to measure out a man I know I can't be
    Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
    Please greet them as they graze, goodbye.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Now wallow with sick and disease
    To measure out the man I know I can't be
    Go learn your turn and swallow a shepherd if they follow,
    Please grieve them as they grave, goodbye.


    The above is what I hear, and I'm wondering if anyone else does also...
    I also think that the third chorus replaces grave with graze because I do indeed hear that z sound at the end.

    My thoughts agree with the "to bleed with you". The whisper after says "help us, help us, someone. help us, help us).
