In decadence I take thee by the hand
Too frail, to gain the promised land
Too frail, to take your pain away
Too frail, a sequel of decay

May millenniums gather
On the mirage of desolated souls
Far between departure and sorrow
I breed my afterthought

In thy hours of vast dejection's haunt, wane
An angel strays upon my door
So frail and lost within
To weep upon her days of yore

My decadent come in
Her stain and tears upon my floor
The sorrow that she brings
Devotion of a life outworn

In decadence come in
May thy lids desorb
From emerald seas
A pending solitary
Though thy pain redeems,
Life it seems to be
A fragile sanctuary

    My OpinionI believe the words at the beginning of this song to be:

    Checkered by the dawn, enslaved in life enthralling
    Swept up by the mortal waste of my enslaved emotion
    Aeons on the gloss in argentine pending
    Concuria stopping and prevail the conquering angina
    Concuria stopping and prevail the conquering...

    General Commentyup this song is beautiful, it doesnt mean anything realistic. According to an interview with band this song is about worldy problems and how fragile life is.

    General CommentOh yeah, I forgot. The song to me was about a woman who had seen a lot of sorrow and her life. She's become so hopeless and she feels that she can never see happiness and experience joy.

    Did I mention how much I love this song?! I can't help it! It's like my most favorite song ever!!! I'd seriously marry someone immediately if they sang that song to me!!
