So little time
Your crystal eyes gaze into mine
A burning flame
Forever freaming. dreaming a lie

Trapped insife internal eyes
Carresed by innocence, a sanctuary for your mind
Born alone beneath pcle sardonic skies
One love, one life, one sorrow

I won't reproach myself this time
A condemned man, granted a sweet reprieve
A turn of fate, a genial twist of the knife
Undying affection for life

    MemorySad... The first comment is mine, so I'll say it...

    This is my favorite song from Eternity. Why Anathema doesn't play these songs live is understandable. This album is so powerful that it is emotionally difficult to perform, and that is such a respectable feat by any musician.

    My favorite part is the last verse, and I think it is the climax of the album. The published lyrics make it seem like the character is not going to commit suicide, but if you continue listening, he shouts "never to return", and that is not in the lyrics. So, its a song that could go both ways. And that's why it's incredible.
