Ravished from our paradise
A crack in the mirror, I know who's to blame
So full of life, but paralyzed
Etched on my iris, but I try not to think of it all

We swore to God in veritas
And burned our skin like it burned our souls
One dealt with grief by causing pain
She hid behind maple and built her own fortress of sound

Hear this melody, almost forgotten

(Hush)
I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
You're returning to Heaven like dust to dust
Been waiting forever to witness your fading
Like ashes to ashes

Forbidden dance on fragile skin
Why do you shine as I suffer in pain?
The greatest scars remain within
Leaving you now with a heart black as cardinal sin

Fear this melody, almost forgotten

(Hush)
I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
You're returning to Heaven like dust to dust
Been waiting forever to witness your fading
Like ashes to ashes

I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
(Hate… my solution)
Been waiting too long
(Fate… an illusion)

I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
You're returning to Heaven like dust to dust
I've been waiting forever to witness your fading
Like ashes to ashes

I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
You're returning to Heaven like dust to dust
I've been waiting forever to witness your fading
Like ashes to ashes

    General CommentWhen i listened to this song, i thought: "Wooow. That`s a nice chorus!!" But i wonder what is this song all about... no idea. The only thing i could suppose was:

    "Ravished from our paradise
    A crack in the mirror, I know who's to blame
    So full of life, but paralyzed
    Etched on my iris, but I try not to think of it all"

    This 1st part sounded to me as the story of someone young, full of life, but disabled by an accident or something. While the other person can`t take that image out of his/her mind.

    Obviously, i may have guessed it wrong hehe
