IMMORTAL SOULS

Once Upon A Time in the North

Text by A.Sarkioja


01 Painweighted


I lean my head against the glass of the chilled, cold window.
Feel of cold pulls me back to memories of the past;
I fell down on the ground, colored stones with my blood...

I saw myself from a far, my wounded head glowing red;
I wanted so to let go but something still held me down...

	I await for the rain to wash away the pain;
	Down by grace all the fears I face everyday...

	I walk alone my path in emptiness of the night;
	Under the darkened and painweighted cloud of life.

I close my eyes from the world, mourning in the hearts of wise;
Painweighted and sorrow filled; still I wait for the grave...

	I await for the rain to wash away the pain;
	Down by grace all the fears I face everyday...

	Painweighted...	

	I walk alone my path in emptiness of the night;
	Under the darkened and painweighted cloud of life.


02 Down in My Grave Dark are the skies lit by the neon lights; I walk on the street in embrace of the wind. Fear, that gnaws me in its jaws; I bury my head in my hands from the world. And the voice in my head won't leave me alone... Black are the walls that imprison my soul; Darkness surrounds me in the cloak of the night. Down, deep inside I say a prayer for my soul; My phobias ruling the life I once had. And the voice in my head questions my faith... All that I need from thee to be free... Lower me down in my grave; And bid me farewell. Lower me down in my grave; With the flowers I'll wither away. Lower me down; Down in my grave... Alone in the dark, in the silence of the night; Long is the road to the lights of the day. I close my eyes in the frozen ground; I see my old self in the cold soothing soil. And the voice in my head silenced by faith... All that I need from thee to be free... Lower me down in my grave; And bid me farewell. Lower me down in my grave; With the flowers I'll wither away. Lower me down; Down in my grave...
