the inheritance of sin and shame lyrics – ashes you leave

you shine like the blinding sun
with the seas weeping on the sh*r*s
and the salt spray dashing
against the windows

your gaze lies distant…
where have your thoughts gone off?

you shine like the blinding sun
with your sorrows hidden away
and a face without a heart gazes
upon the portrait that reflects
your sin and shame
where have your thoughts gone off?

as a sinless and shameless face
walks among the living unchanged
and yet your gaze lies distant
and you wish you had never lost your soul
to a portrait of sorrow
but where does a troubled mind go?

/ ashes you leave lyrics
