Alive without breath
As cold as death
A heart like a stone
Never felt alone
She never felt alone
No feelings inside
Her lips never lied
No worries in mind
Not one of the kind
She was not one of the kind

'''She can’t be seen
Can’t be felt
Can’t be heard
Can’t be smelt'''

Never said any word
Flew away like a bird
Just a second of life
Until her time arrived

She left this world
Took her flight
Towards the rays of light
She cast warm sand
Over deep rivers
And withered land
She held my hand
My eyes grew dim
We watch death walk in
Where will she go?
Hang your prayers in the winds of the night

    My OpinionA soul-crushingly sad song to listen to, and I have heard some sad ones. Despite the religious references, this one, for me at least, ties with Wolfsheim's Annie for saddest ever.
