lyrics

Just one last moment now, can it tell
You all achievement and all expired expectations?
Soon to be buried underground, so safe and sound
How’d it become with no farewell, and no forewarning?

Why did you go, without a word or leaving?
We’ll miss you though…did you know?

All your past races around, worn out ground.
You can’t be done, can’t overcome the pain of knowing.
We’re calling out, don’t even say it
The messenger, his voice so tender speaking splinters.

It’s over so we have no words, just grieving.
Where can we go, escape that scathing?

Always I know how, where or when, this all ends now.
And your sleep sounds, echoes drowned out.
With words you said and the mark you have left
Will not fade away.

To think of their absent faces resonating
From up above the clouds are sinking, with ground breaking.
Calling out to us when needed most, more light awaking
That this has just been all the most entertaining.

Come back, just come down.
Won’t you please take me with you, too soon?

Always I know how, where or when, this all ends now.
And your sleep sounds, echoes drowned out.
With words you said and the mark you have left
Will not fade away.

He’s lost now...
