Lyrics


The corpse leaves lay,
below my feet decaying
on the ground.

Along every street,
from them, hisses out
a bone-crackling sound.

As mine ache
from the sleeplessness,
which has caused my thinking
to become vague,
dismantled by isolation
in these times of plague.

The trees claw at the sky above.
I cling to hope below.
On my walk through the night,
a promenade that does envelope me in love.
It does show me a way to cope.

Tomorrow is a new day,
and I invoke Sol to send down
a loving ray to light up the dark
that suffocates us all.

Tomorrow is a new day,
in this Hell, we shall find a way,
yes, we shall.

Yes, in this Hell,
we shall find a way, yes we shall,
and think, always, of those who fell.
Out from this mausoleum,
souls redivivus, we'll crawl.

Yes, out from this mausoleum,
souls redivivus, we'll crawl.
