a dying wish lyrics – anathema

i bear the seed of ruin
a golden age turned to stone
elysium … to dust

for this, a tragic journey
a vision of a dying embrace
scattered earth
silence …

where echonia wept
i sank into the silent desert

fallen am i,
in the solitude of a broken promise
… i cried alone
my empyrean is a scar
from the memory of her beautiful life
forever was her name

fulfilment lost in a lifetime of regret
ornate peace would cover me
as i would die now …
for one last wish
