as embers dress the sky lyrics – agalloch

the shallow voice of the wind cries between these ebony wings
the shallow cries of the wind sing a swansong for mankind

shine on morning skyfire
ablaze this final day
the autumnal end, the dawn of man
the centuries fade below my feet

i soared above them as they worthlessly poured thought from a chalice
as wisdom would flow, twilight would come to p*ss
drink, oh hallowed cup of life

shine on evening skyfire
paint the sky with the blood of a raven
bereavement, oh garment of ebony
as embers dress the dusk of man…

[music by haughm/anderson (3/96 – 10/96)]
