cenotaph lyrics – bolt thrower

cenotaph

alone you stand – the final parody
destined to silence – a memorial to mortality

carved in stone – a tribute to the dead
for nameless victims – whose litany is unread

never forgotten – wars’ memory lingers on
a dark reminder – to mankind’s oblivion

this solemn image – constructed with resolution
a monument – to war’s terminal conclusion

cenotaph
