scarlet heavens lyrics – katatonia

only for the wind i lay myself down
feeling this scarlet scent of death
under ebony shades i dream of a child
dancing in heaven, dancing in heaven

i must have seen this face before
a monument of shallow sorrows
under ebony shades a child now dies
but grievance won’t regain

something grasp for my soul
i think it’s god
but my sorrow is dragging me down
through my sins

where is god in his heaven?
why am i a twisted mind?
now i see the light above
but in darkness i must fall

for my soul you pray at last
will i find my place?
the stench of sorrow that pierces my flesh
can never be pure

when the blackness overwhelms me
where shall i turn?
to run away to never look back
to run away from evil

only for the wind i lay myself down
feeling this scarlet scent of death
under ebony shades i dream of a child
dancing in heaven, dancing in heaven

i must have seen this face before
a monument of shallow sorrows
under ebony shades a child now dies
but grievance won’t regain

dancing in heaven
