Empty grounds, mortars and ashes, the waste of seven hollow years
Shattered domes of the faithful, gather the faithless, instill fear
Hear the sound of eradication fill the air

I felt the waves pass through me
Like the dance we shared before
It is the memory that keeps me pulling through

I saw these moonlit fighters
Cast their glare upon the city
Where only man and demons dwell

Soft embraces carry me
Through winter sunlight-summer breeze
There is no danger in my mind
Only the will to see you

It feels like I possess you

Even as darkness unfolds
In battlefields, I’m not alone
The cross that they carry me on
Lies in dust

I know that you are waiting still
Beneath carbon skies, iron-willed
The ending where we both belong
Lies in dust

It lies in dust

It feels like I possess you
