lyrics

Can you hear the music of the spheres as your last breath leaves?
The keening voices wailing sorrow as your airways heave

And with one last exhalation you curse my whispered name
Like the droves of fools before you that died all just the same

Rest your head my child
Fear not and take my hand

Your hourglass is empty
Bereft of grain of sand

Darkness drawing closer
Few defy the fates
Labored breathing heavy
Oblivion awaits

It beckons to me
It calls me by my name
It drags me from my body

Slumped dead in filth and shame
Extracted
from my mortal vessel

It guides me ever onward
To gates of somnolence
My body disconnected
Departing consciousness

It questions

Can you hear the music of the spheres as your last breath leaves?
The keening voices wailing sorrow as your airways heave

And with one last exhalation you curse my whispered name
Like the droves of fools before you that died all just the same

Rest your head my child
Fear not and take my hand

Your hourglass is empty
Bereft of grain of sand

Darkness drawing closer
Few defy the fates
Labored breathing heavy
Oblivion awaits

A pall of grief enshrouds me
I mourn a wasted life
Signifying nothing
ended by mercy's knife

I pass away consigned to morbid fate
A shameful ending
for which I could not wait

Shed for me not your tears
Give me to the ground
Make me food for star'ved worms beneath the frozen mound

I pass away consigned to morbid fate
A cruel and shameful ending
for which I could not wait

I pass away consigned to morbid fate
A final resting place to hang my weary head
For many years years I've languished ailing in my bed
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead

Rot away consigned to morbid fate
Breathing ebbing shallow
Skulking death in wait
A cruel and shameful ending
the hour growing late

I pass away enslaved to morbid fate
A final resting place to hang my weary head
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead
DEAD!

It beckons to me
It calls me by my name
It drags me from my body
Slumped dead in filth and shame

It guides me ever onward
To gates of somnolence
My body disconnected
Departing consciousness

Shed for me not your tears
Give me to the ground
Make me food for star'ved worms beneath the frozen mound

It guides me ever onward
To gates of somnolence
My body disconnected
Departing consciousness

I rot away consigned to morbid fate
A final resting place to hang my weary head
For many years years I've languished ailing in my bed
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead

Can you hear the music of the spheres as your last breath leaves?
The keening voices wailing sorrow as your airways heave

And with one last exhalation you curse my whispered name
Like the droves of fools before you that died all just the same

Rest your head my child
Fear not and take my hand

Your hourglass is empty
Bereft of grain of sand

Darkness drawing closer
Few defy the fates
Your labored breathing heavy
Oblivion awaits

A pall of grief enshrouds me
I mourn a wasted life
Signifying nothing
ended by mercy's knife

A final resting place to hang my weary head
Waiting for the blessed day when I'll finally be dead
I'LL FINALLY BE DEAD
