in darkness i sigh lyrics – syrach

read for me the words of the dead
fathers of the dark
i stumble forth in misery
read me the words of the dead

in darkness i sigh
arrival of the fallen
a longing for the heavens
a night of burden
in darkness i sigh
arrival of the fallen
a longing for the heavens
a night of burden

remember the fallen
see them hang at the gallows
remember the buried
died for their forefathers’ sins

as i walk, the skies grew black
as i stopped and never looked back
for those once loyal…yet so false
i sighed again and sealed my lips

let us celebrate the dead
let us celebrate this journey to the end
let me enter the garden of delights

if i shall rise from the ashes
bloodstained and hurt
the scars – kisses of judas
they have been with me – with me from birth
scream to me the words of the dead
forge the fathers of the dark
if i stumble forth in misery
i read for you…the words of the dead
the words of the dead
