about

We took this melody from a haunting Swedish love song, Ack högaste himmel, and Rowan supplied some equally haunting lyrics about the end days...

lyrics

The sharp prongs of winter
Bleed blunt hours of light
As short summer days
Give way to long nights
And creatures of bush and briar
Leave feetings in fresh snow
On highways and byways
Of men who'll never know...

We worked and we wept
For the pains of our kind
As grief grew unchecked
In our hearts and our minds
Now gone are the gods
And all their creatures great and small
They stand hand in hand
At the ruin of all...

The last of us waiting
A question on her breath
Knows well that an answer
Will always bring a death
With sap in her veins
Her tongue collecting rust
Sing "Ashes to ashes"
Sing "Dust to dust..."
