Stay with me a while
Rise above the vile
Name my final rest
Pored into my chest

Into the orchard I walk, peering way past the gate
Wilted scenes for us who couldn't wait
Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
Halo of death, all I see is departure
Mourner's lament, but it's me who's the martyr

Pledge yourself to me
Never leave me be
Sweat breaks on my brow
Given time ends now

Into the orchard I walk, peering way past the gate
Wilted scenes for us who couldn't wait
Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
Halo of death, all I see is departure
Mourner's lament, but it's me who's the martyr

Spirit painted sin
Embers 'neath my skin
Veiled in pale embrace
Reached and touched my face

Into the orchard I walk, peering way past the gate
Wilted scenes for us who couldn't wait
Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
Halo of death, all I see is departure
Mourner's lament, but it's me who's the martyr

    General CommentWow, with the assisted-suicide-just-before-death-ends-in-hell theme you are theorizing, this becomes just about the saddest piece of art I have ever witnessed.

    To have endured life and be ready to go to heaven, and then end in hell due to the wanting to ease the lover's pain of losing one.

    That is also very critical of religion and the sketchy concepts of afterlife.
