lyrics

black smoke
masks the sunset today
the orchids fade and fall away
please
please leave me sleeping
leave me to dream
of these forbidden colors
ripped apart
ripped apart at the seams

surrendering soldiers
hands they are raising
remembering bodies
that we burned and then buried

under the autumn skies
the bones of forgotten crimes
are we leading the way, or have we lost the light

day after day
am I wasting my time
wasting whats mine
wasted away
why are the leaves always falling
change and decay
shattered and cold
silent as stone
we met our fate

cracks run through the axis
cracks run through the axis
from ancient days, we have wandered the stars
cracks run through the axis
cracks run through the axis
why should I begin again
when from the start I see our ends

holy so holy
holy so holy
I follow the ones you bury
for I follow you home
I follow the ones you buried
this is all that I carry
now decadence is my son

I follow the ones you buried
I follow the ones you bury
now I don't have a comrade
who will carry
who will carry my ashes home
