lyrics

Again the flames find me
I let my guard down
Spires circle and close in
Searing and scorching
Red frantic horror

And when the flames find me
Each time they catch me
With my blood boiling over
Blistering, burning
In the mouth of death I rise

Don’t let the flames find you
Don’t let them catch you
Shield your sword as they close in
Fear for you facing
That red frantic horror

I see the flames try you
They’ll try to catch you
Watch your blood boiling over
Blistering, burning
In the mouth of death…

Your eyes they betray your conviction
I need you resisting the total consumption
Bear teeth draw your claws for the war now
Stand by for the body’s reaction

I know that I will find you
I know one day I’ll find you dead
I know one day the witch will take your head

Vessel broken from the conquest
The charred remains a marker of the end
In spite of all the help that I could lend

Watching the hypnotic glow

Your eyes they just showed no conviction
You laid down to embrace the total consumption
I’ll carve a stone at the dawning
Kneel down and await resurrection

I knew that I would find you
I knew one day I’d find you dead
I knew one day the witch would take your head

Vessel broken from the conquest
The charred remains a marker of the end
In spite of all the help that I could lend

Still every night I wander
Cold winds and damp black soil twisting the path that leads me back

Moon wash each desperate corner
Nothing familiar, nothing, no one

I can't just leave you out there
The wolves, the souls the unmarked, unmarked, unmarked graves of old regret

I mark the trees to count my days
My vacant eyes still flicker searching for a memory

Still every night I wander
Cold winds and damp black soil twisting the path that leads me back

Moon wash each desperate corner
Nothing familiar, nothing, no one
