lyrics

silent and still
jagged and brave
the fate of our age left unspoken
our symbols shattered and broken

fall apart
in this crusade, you lay my body down
cherry blossoms drifting to the ground

the autumn shores
now distort
where bodies lie, and the soldiers fight
skeletal trees, sway in the breeze
what can we see
with stolen eyes

worlds apart
maybe here you lay my body down
cherry blossoms drifting to the ground
fallen, beautiful, you are the ones
howling echos fill the night
soldiers of the sun

sun falls in the west
dragging my heart with it
you're so low
alone
at home I smoke and shake
until I need no bit of faith
I need no human race

shattered bone
cannot condone
my heart grows cold, on a misty morning
in martyrs pose
they will atone
my blood runs cold, on a misty morning

for the last time
maybe here you lay my body down
cherry blossoms drifting to the ground
fallen, beautiful, you are the ones
howling echos fill the night
soldiers of the sun
