lyrics

The snap of a twig as my boot falls hard
An admission of guilt
My position begs for disclosure
Is it possible for fighting to be fair

As I turn to face you for the last time
The steel embrace of sacrifice
This pound of flesh seems so insignificant
When the blood we've spilled still flows
Flows so high

I tried not to resent you
Instead I present this broken heart
I know you're not to blame
But this sorrow keeps carrying me away
Ever since the day I met you
I could tell the outcome from the start
A dead man tells no lies
I love you and this is not goodbye

Do you recall when we once were lovers and
The crimes we wrought upon this world
Foundation of pain and guilt
Does remembering the feeling do you harm?

Philosophers haven't seen what I've seen
They don't know what I know
Precognitive dissonance
Transitions bathed in silence and sorrow
To the other side

No I tried not to resent you
Instead I present this broken heart
I know you're not to blame
But this sorrow keeps carrying me away
Ever since the day I met you
I could tell the outcome from the start
A dead man tells no lies
I love you and this is not goodbye


S-O-R
Sorry that I couldn't find a way
To avoid this fate
Your gun against my head
Our child alone
R-O-W
You know of the price I need to pay
Take this tear of red
My solemn recompense and go back home


The spirit of the warrior will always be with you
