those who linger at night lyrics – midnight odyssey

“i am the forest, the keeper of fate
i have awakened to die
these trees are old, my breath is frail
i can no longer protect them”

“o’ ancient spirit, i did not know
my presence has brought this fate
if only i could erase the trace
of mankind’s foolish ways”

“your kind has come here and burned the heart
of those who linger at night
they held the secrets, our precious fate
but now they’ll drown in silence”

“o’ dying spirit, i shall prevail
and rid the world of man
they shall desire, but they will fall
this world shall drown in blood”

and with those very words
the rich green leaves all turned brown
as all the moisture dried
the spirit fell to the ground
