pyre lyrics – opeth

pyre

follow the embers
into cities of dreams
what you’ll be seeing
is not all what it seems

dawn of the liar
future’s a pyre

outside the window i see people p*ssing by
if they could see me now they’d break down and cry
familiar voices beat behind the wall of sleep
i wish this beating would so reveal the love i keep

lock down your senses
await the grating beyond
and in the morning
this darkness will trail along

born as a failure
and died as a stranger

and your country’s bleeding while you’re forced to mourn

outside the window i see people p*ssing by
if they could see me now they’d break down and cry
familiar voices beat behind the wall of sleep
i wish this beating would so reveal the love i keep

bring me back again
