A dead sun, a pale glow
Upon the walls i feign to know
We bear no fruit, no flowers, no life
And we get sick but never die
Become an echo
Resounding “let go”

My heart is a tomb
My heart is an empty room
I’ve given it away
I never want to see it again

I go to him in paths of dreams
In bed awake with shadow beings
They crawl inside and wait with me
The creatures here become machines
Walk with me to a place of trust
Death will no longer silence us

My heart is a tomb
My heart is an empty room
I’ve given it away
I never want to see it again

And all your words could save me
But keep your love away from me
In all the worlds decaying
Is there place that’s safe for us?

My heart is a tomb
My heart is an empty room
I’ve given it away
I’ve swallowed the iron moon
Moon, moon

    General CommentI read somewhere this song is about a factory worker in China who commits suicide.

    Chelsea is such a powerful artist. This song is beautiful.

    General CommentAt 50 years old, sad about the passing of Chris Cornell, I discovered Chelsea Wolfe. Wherever and whenever you are, you can always find a new source of beauty, be grateful for it.
