lament lyrics – bolt thrower

the time has come to leave this place – never to return
nothing’s left but ashes – my body now is spurned
your sorrow will subside in time – my one, true, only friend
there is one thing we can do – to avert this bitter end

up amongst the stars i dwell – tranquillity is found
i look upon the earth – to which all human life is bound
alone i wander aimlessly – for now my spirit’s free
my soul exists within you as i guide your destiny

the tears of grief you weep for me – through uncontrolled emotion
you have given me your all – a life time of devotion
so come my friend take my hand – together we shall see
the pathways through the darkness – for all eternity

in eternity
